High performance capacity: AC8700 is functional up to 1006 MHz. It is based on fixed receiver but modular US transmitter. Output amplifier stages use high performance GaN hybrids, which makes the usable output level range especially wide.
Local management available via USB: AC8700 has a USB connector for local configuration with a PC or PDA.
Automatic alignment and increased reliablity: AC8700 is also equipped with a plug-in module slot for transponder module. The transponder unit allows full remote monitoring and control of all node parameters. In addition it measures the levels of forward and return path signals and enables the automatic forward and return path alignment function. Node’s dual power supplies are monitored by the transponder which increases reliability of the node. Fully user configurable automatic level control (ALC) keeps output level constant, while forward path spectrum analyser and return path ingress analyser features aid in network monitoring and troubleshooting.
