At this week’s ANGA Cable Show in Cologne, Germany EMCORE Corp. (NASDAQ: EMKR) has unveiled the Medallion 6000, an addition to its 1550-nm CATV fiber-optic transmitter product portfolio. The new transmitter is designed to support extended bandwidth CATV, RF over Glass (RFoG), RF overlay for PON networks, and concurrent SAT-IF transport networks.
The Medallion 6000 series of externally modulated transmitters is housed in a 1RU rackmount housing, supports operational bandwidths up to 2.8 GHz, and offers adjustable SBS suppression capabilities of 20 dBm and beyond as well as optional electronic dispersion compensation. Transmitters offer two output ports of 10 dBm each. When deployed with one or more EMCORE optical amplifiers, the Medallion 6000 transmitters can enable fiber launch powers exceeding 20 dBm, EMCORE says.
The Medallion 6000 transmitters are designed to deliver high quality video with full quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) loading to 1 GHz, spanning from shorter reach RFoG and FTTH applications, to over 100 km for long haul. Monitoring and configuration is supported via the front panel display, an RS-232 port, and Ethernet port with SNMP, Telnet, and Web interface.
The platform is mechanically designed for flexibility and space efficiency including universal rack mount features, modular front panel design for private label convenience, and optional front and rear port placement. Dual, redundant and field replaceable fans and power supplies are standard.
