Optical node

The ion3-1900-s optical node is a strand mount unit that has a forward path bandwidth of 870 MHz with a housing bandwidth of 1 GHz. The node converts a 1310- or 1550-nm lightwave signal to RF and routes it to three high-powered RF outputs for distribution. Return-path information from the three output ports may be combined with information from a local source and transmitted back to the headend via an optical return-path transmitter module. This module uses either a Fabry-Perot or dfb laser with a bandwidth of 5 to 200 MHz.
