Building blocks for HFC networks

With the introduction of new broadband data transmission technologies (DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1), service providers are forced to continuously upgrade and segment HFC networks. To provide quality services, it is necessary to build the HFC network from reliable, durable and high-quality components. 

Passive and active solutions recommended by our company have been developed using the latest technologies and are suitable for the construction of next generation HFC networks.

HFC optical active elements

With DOCSIS 3.0 and DOCSIS 3.1 standardized solutions, CATV providers can compete with FTTH operators. However, as the speed of data provision increases and the number of digital channels (and especially HD channels) increases, the current 860MHz band must be increased to 1 or 1.2 GHz, and networks must be continuously segmented.

The applied new generation HFC optical active solutions should meet the following criteria:

  • High port density

  • Low power consumption

  • Wide frequency range (1 and 1.2 GHz)

  • High modularity enables the easy network modifications in the future

  • Modern network management

Our company offers the Pacific Broadband Networks, InnoTrans and Technetix high-quality, reliable and affordable optical solutions its customers.

Headend RF management and cabling

By segmenting the HFC networks, the number of the headend forward and upstream RF ports and the number of the associated connection cables are continuously growing. To do this, we recommend Belden's mini RG59 quadshield headend cable and the matching headend connectors and the modular RF management solutions of the ATX company. RF management solution includes RF combiners, splitters, and headend amplifiers.
