Distributed Gain Architecture
Get more for less from your HFC network

It is rapidly approaching a year since CableLabs released the specification for DOCSIS 4.0. The ensuing months have seen a massive increase in demand on residential networks as people work from home and children are being taught remotely because of the pandemic. Consequently, operators are looking at ways to increase network capacity to 1.8 GHz sooner than originally anticipated.

Technetix leverages Vecima's expertise

Technetix is delighted to announce a partnership that will combine its market leading DBx platform with Vecima’s cutting edge Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) solutions.

The DBx is a field upgradeable modular platform designed for migration from an amplifier to fiber deep node to R-PHY or R-MAC-PHY. Technetix has over 1 million DBx units embedded in broadband networks globally, all of which can be upgraded to have a R-PHY device by simply adding the Vecima compact RPD to the modular platform. This venture between Technetix and Vecima provides a flexible and scalable platform enabling Gigabit access via multiple technologies.

Technetix Add XGS-PON to Final Mile Access Solutions

Technetix is delighted to announce its 10/10G symmetrical XGS-PON solution and 10G EPON solution, including a flexible and pluggable micro 10G PON Optical Line Terminal (OLT), powered by technology from TiBiT Communications.

This addition to Technetix’ fibre portfolio further enhances the world class DBx access platform, which can now offer XGS-PON and 10G EPON in addition to traditional HFC, RFoG and Remote PHY services. It is feasible to build a high RF level RPD node and OLT in one housing using these building blocks, as this modular and flexible solution evolves with the needs of the network operator. There are approaching 1 million DBx units in the field which can now deliver high speed business services via fibre to enterprise, add 5G backhaul into existing networks, as well as serving more traditional PON FTTH network architectures.

Unleashing Endless Possibilities for Cable Networks

There has always been a clear divide between upstream and downstream data splits, making it possible to upgrade signals in the existing network using by-pass filters and diplex filters in the active components. But this separation has become a limiting factor when upgrading the network; each upgrade requires new filters and additional labour. Technetix has now developed a bi-directional amplifier, without the need for diplex filters. This article will explain how to create more bandwidth and flexibility within the same infrastructure and how this technology will make 1.8GHz ESD installations feasible without amplifier respacing.
