A future proof choice
In addition to being an excellent fiber node, the ICON9000 RPD is equipped with remote PHY module.The node and remote PHY support DOCSIS® 3.1 downstream spectrum and upstream frequencies.
Remote PHY modules
ICON9000 RPD can host either 1x1 or 1x2 Teleste remote PHY device (RPD) modules. Modules meet CableLabs specifications to allow interoperatibility with standards based CCAP core implementations.
ICON9000 RPD is a 24/7 probe in a network and managed remotely through an optional transponder (bidirectional communication), remotely over a Remote Ingress Switching (RIS) link (unidirectional downstream) or locally through a USB port. The downstream spectrum and upstream quality measurements are performed by the transponder, which can also generate return path pilot signals.
Automatic and intelligent
An automatic level control (ALC) and optical level control (OLC) keep output levels constant and alignments precise. The node includes also ingress switches in every RF port and assists in locating and isolating ingress sources in the network.
Profound reliability is secured by two power supplies supporting load-sharing.
