Emcore showcasing CATV transmission system and DOCSIS 3.1 optical components at Cable-Tec Expo

In booth #2821 at the Society of Cable Television's (SCTE) 2015 Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans (14-16 October), Emcore Corp of Alhambra, CA, USA, which provides indium phosphide (InP)-based optical chips, components, subsystems and systems for broadband and specialty fiber-optics markets, is hosting a demonstration of its Medallion Series CATV transmission system, featuring the 19" rack-mount Medallion Series 1550nm CATV Transmitter, Optical A/B Switch and CATV Fiber Amplifier.

Medallion Series Transmitters are available for direct or external modulation and are based on Emcore's proprietary laser technology. The firm's lasers are designed for low noise, high optical output power and narrow optical linewidth. The transmitters leverage proprietary pre-distortion circuitry to provide what is claimed to be superior CSO (composite second order) and CTB (composite triple beat) performance, allowing links up to 150km. In addition, the Medallion's SBS (stimulated Brillouin scattering) suppression levels of greater than 21dBm through 40km of fiber makes it suitable for RFoG (radio frequency over glass) and RF overlay in FTTx networks.

The Medallion 2100 Optical A/B Switch is a high-performance solution for network protection and optical redundancy in CATV/FTTx networks. Its automatic switching protects the network from inadvertent service outages due to up-stream optical signal degradation.

The Medallion 7000 Series CATV Fiber Amplifiers provides very stable optical outputs over a wide operating temperature range, as well as the exceptionally high power and low noise figures demanded by CATV applications. The Medallion 7100 is packaged in a compact 1 RU housing, while the 7200 is housed in a 2 RU enclosure and is now available with up to 64 ports of 21dBm. Optional integrated WDM filters for RFoG or RF overlay in FTTx further preserves rack space and reduces cost by eliminating a separate network element.         

"Our Medallion series of rack-mount CATV transmission equipment is ideal for network systems providers that demand the highest quality, economical delivery of HD video and audio, along with the highest-bandwidth data transmission," says Gyo Shinozaki, director of marketing for CATV products. "The Medallion series is also designed for future DOCSIS 3.1 compliance to support cable operators as they move to the new DOCSIS standard for even higher-speed data transfer over existing CATV networks," he adds.

At Cable-Tec Expo, Emcore is also showcasing its full line of DOCSIS 3.1 lasers and optical receivers, 1600 and 1700 series distributed feedback (DFB) butterfly lasers, 1900 series TO-56 DFB lasers, broadband photodiodes, and components for wireless and distributed antenna system (DAS) applications.
