Removing barriers with RIS
Optional RIS (Remote Ingress Switching) modules (E61 & E62) offer remote ingress switching management over downstream. RIS offers a cost effective way to tackle return path ingress. It also enables the use of Argus SmartRIS toolset if Argus NMS is used to manage the network. SmartRIS is the most advanced ingress switching management system available on markets.
The RIS modules offer local access to E3 via USB port that also enables wireless local management via Bluetooth® and Teleste Commander application for Android smartphones and tablets.
While the E61 RIS module provides unidirectional ingress switching capabilities the E62 RIS transponder module supports birectional communications. As such the E62 RIS transponder module assists in the remote monitoring in addition to the ingress management.
The E3 supports intelligent manual alignments. Instead of aligning separate amplifier stages, the technology offers a universal control that automatically aligns gains and levels of amplifier stages in an optimal manner. Besides optimal performance it increases service reliability and cuts down on operational costs over time.
Local user interface
E3 has also a local user interface consisting of a four digit 7-segment display and three push buttons. This local UI can be used for basic configuration in cases where use of a PC, tablet or smartphone equipped with CATVisor Commander is not desired.
Power save technology
The combination of high output level, 1.2 GHz DS frequency, and smart features can be potentially power-consuming. In the E3, power save technology help operators to reduce power consumption in response for example to channel load changes. In low power mode, this technology can save up to 3 W per active output port. On a bigger scale this means lower operating cost for the network and a smaller CO₂ footprint.
