High performance capacity
AC8710 is based on fixed receiver but modular upstream transmitter. Output amplifier stages use high performance 1.2 GHz GaN hybrids, which makes the usable output level range especially wide.
AC8710 has a USB connector for local configuration with a PC or mobile device.
Automatic alignment and increased reliablity
AC8710 is also equipped with a plug-in module slot for transponder module.The transponder unit measures the forward and return path signal levels and enables the automatic forward and return path alignment function. Node’s dual power supplies are monitored by the transponder and increase the reliability of the node. Fully user configurable automatic level control (ALC) keeps output levels constant and automatic ingress blocking reacts to unwanted return path signals.
