PBN says it will display scalable platforms designed to provide a logical migration path from hybrid fiber/coax (HFC) through to RF over glass (RFoG) and FTTH networks:

  • Advanced optical communications mainframe (AOCM) for FTTx and xPON optical network architectures. The AOCM is a carrier-grade communications platform and compliant with ATCA standards, PBN says. Depending on the project size, it offers scalable options in 2RU, 5RU, and 12RU. The AOCM is designed for high-density deployments with over 6000 subscribers per 12RU chassis. It is designed to be compatible with MSO back-office systems, has a CMTS management-like interface, provides gigabit bandwidth per subscriber, and is ready for migration to 10G/100G next-generation networks.
  • Dense optical communications mainframe (DOCM) for HFC and RFoG optical network architectures. The DOCM is PBN’s third-generation communications platform for HFC and RFoG optical network architectures and is compliant with SCTE-HMS standards. The DOCM is designed for high-density deployments with 30 standard transmitters or 60 QAM transmitters in one 4RU chassis. It is also available with up to 60 return path receivers and comes with intelligent automatic channel modulation levelling. The new platform features high sensitivity receivers that have been designed to support deep fiber and RFoG applications.
  • Deep fiber optical distribution node (ODND) The ODND is a building block for high performance networks, designed for adaptability and scalability with the ability of 2x2 full segmentation. The modular ODND is optioned to have an HMS capable transponder over DOCSIS for remote management.
