MAY 7, 2010 -- ARRIS announced the CORWave dual-density forward transmitter (CORWave DW), designed for operators with facility constraints planning to add new services and wishing to benefit from very low power consumption.

MAY 7, 2010 -- ARRIS announced the CORWave dual-density forward transmitter (CORWave DW), designed for operators with facility constraints planning to add new services and wishing to benefit from very low power consumption.

The CORWave DW features two transmitters in the space formerly occupied by a single transmitter, says a company official. The DW transmitter employs CORWave multi-wavelength technology to increase fiber capacity without growing fiber infrastructure.

"We designed the CORWave DW to address operational complexity and environmental issues," says Peter Wolff, ARRIS Access & Transport vice president and general manager. “It delivers a 50% decrease in the amount of required rack and floor space and has the lowest power consumption among comparable forward transmitters in the industry. The freed-up chassis space can be used to generate new services through the addition of other application modules, like low noise return receivers for RFoG applications and EPON Optical Line Terminals for high-speed data transmission."
