Aurora Networks is unveiling its RQ4000-series "Remote QAM" at Cable-Tec Expo. The company combined its node expertise with the multiplexing and QAM modulation technology it acquired from GoBackTV in May to enable cable operators to transition broadcast QAM and edge QAM functionality into the node.The new node QAM plugs into an Aurora optical node platform, configured either for Fiber Deep or traditional HFC. It supports up to 158 incremental QAM channels, while connecting to Aurora's headend-based Universal Services Multiplexer via digital optical transport. In the absence of legacy analog and broadcast QAM signals, it enables the operator to move the digital/RF interface all the way to the node. The Remote QAM module is specifically designed to provide the higher QAM densities and operational improvements that sought by the CCAP initiative.
