Remote PHY - the next step in network evolution
The Remote PHY technology specified by CableLabs® allows deployment of distributed DOCSIS architectures in HFC networks. Enabling more advanced modulation methods due to digital fibre links, it offers operators a way to increase capacity and extend usefulness of their coax networks to answer the growing data transmission needs.
The technology allows for an integrated CCAP to be separated into two components: the CCAP Core and the Remote PHY Device (RPD). One of the best locations for an RPD is the optical node device that is located at the junction of the fiber and coax plants, while the CCAP Core stays at the headend. (Source: CableLabs)
Teleste's Remote PHY devices have been designed to make it easy for operators to take the next steps on the cable network evolution path. They allow operators to migrate to future broadband services while making sure that the legacy platforms can still offer returns on investment.
Mini-CMTS for high-speed broadband data in buildings
Teleste's DAH mini-CMTS is located closer to end users than traditional CMTS which makes it an ideal solution for broadband data for e.g. hotels and the hospitality sector. In terms of capacity it is a step towards full FTTH networks and higher guaranteed bandwidth. It helps operators to segment their networks so that all investments are supporting FTTH network structure when it becomes topical.
In-home solution to extend Wi-Fi coverage
Our MoCA® based indoor solution converts existing indoor coaxial cable networks to Ethernet based IP networks. While most of the home devices have an IP interface instead of traditional RF interface these two technologies can co-exist seamlessly. The solution is using out of band frequencies above UHF frequencies and existing RF services are left untouched.
One of the main applications for the solution is an extension of existing indoor WiFi coverage so that every corner in an apartment is a possible door to internet.
