FEBRUARY 9, 2009 -- Aurora Networks Inc. (search Lightwave for Aurora Networks) has announced the AT3520G, an analog DWDM narrowcast transmitter designed to provide the narrowcast channels required by operators to support expanding high-speed data (HSD), video on demand (VoD), and telephony services. By increasing the number of narrowcast channels carried on one transmitter, the AT3520G expands narrowband services without the need for additional transmitters in headend and hubs where space is constrained, Aurora asserts.
The AT3520G is designed to seamlessly integrate additional narrowcast channels into existing HFC and fiber-deep architectures to enable MSOs to expand narrowcast channel capacity. MSOs can replace existing AT3510G narrowcast transmitters to instantly access 50% more narrowcast channel bandwidth, according to the company.
"The AT3520G gives MSOs the ability to immediately widen their service offerings, like VoD and high-speed data, without incurring major infrastructure costs," said John Dahlquist, vice president of marketing at Aurora Networks.
The AT3520G is a module for the CH3000 platform and is supported by a range of passive components along with Aurora Networks' Light-Plex module. Network operators can install up to 14 transmitters per 3RU chassis, taking up less space and allowing for additional modules to enhance deployment of traditional HFC, fiber-deep, and fiber to the premises (FTTP) networks.
The AT3520G is now available for order and will begin shipping in early Q1 2009.
