Alloptic delivers high-performance return-path receiver for RFoG

OCTOBER 26, 2009 – Alloptic has announced the availability of its ultra high performance return-path receivers. The EVRRL410 series of return-path receivers are designed to offer service providers DOCSIS 3.0 performance with the widest dynamic range in which to operate a high-capacity QAM return path using a standard, non-proprietary RF over glass (RFoG) architecture.

OCTOBER 26, 2009 – Alloptic has announced the availability of its ultra high performance return-path receivers. The EVRRL410 series of return-path receivers are designed to offer service providers DOCSIS 3.0 performance with the widest dynamic range in which to operate a high-capacity QAM return path using a standard, non-proprietary RF over glass (RFoG) architecture.

The EVRRL410 series receivers provide 7-dB noise performance improvement over typical analog return receivers and almost 3-dB improvement over other Alloptic receivers, the company says. This performance translates into the ability to carry, with 15 dB of margin, four bonded 64QAM channels in a DOCSIS 3.0 return path over an SCTE-standard, non-proprietary RFoG architecture operating with a 29-dB optical budget, the company asserts.

According to Shane Eleniak, executive vice president of marketing and business development at Alloptic, “The new ultra low noise return-path receivers provide significant margin, allowing greater than 20-km optical reach and more splits per PON, simplifying the successful deployment of DOCSIS 3.0.”

RFoG allows service providers to continue to leverage traditional HFC equipment and back-office applications with the new FTTP deployments. Cable operators can continue to rely on the existing provisioning and billing systems, CMTS platforms, headend equipment, set-top boxes, conditional access technology, and cable modems while gaining benefits inherent with RFoG and FTTx.
