Designed for flexible, future-proof network installations, the ACE8 offers service providers cost-efficient access to high transmission capacity.
The first DOCSIS 3.1 node
The ACE8 fully meets requirements for DOCSIS 3.1 and DVB-C2. Downstream frequency band is reaching up to 1.2 GHz which ensures fulfilment of all future bandwidth needs. Upstream is flexible and it can be easily updated to 200 MHz. The node is based on fixed receiver and modular US transmitter, and it uses high performance GaN hybrid in output amplifier. This makes its output ranges especially wide and results in enhanced noise resilience.
Sleek, yet robust
The ACE8 is a small, user-friendly node with intelligent features. With compact size and sleek housing the node is easily and effortlessly fit in European style street cabins. The advanced fibre organiser provides convenient location for fibre pigtails and protects the fibres against damage. Connectors and adapters are held in place in the fibre tray by universal type holders the ensure compatibility with variety of existing connectors and adapters.
The ACE8 can be controlled via an intuitive touch screen user interface for tablets. Remote connectivity is also possible via third-party applications through SNMP. Included USB and wireless Bluetooth® connectivity makes the node easily configurable even on the site.
Intelligent in operations
The ACE8 is part of Teleste’s intelligent networks concept that aims at reducing network operating costs while securing high service quality. The node is equipped with an intelligent transponder which enables advanced management features such as automatic adjustment and configuration. The ACE8 also has automatic ingress control to guarantee the quality of upstream signal. The intelligent features significantly reduce need for manual maintenance, and help cut down service outages.
