Core of Every Network

For multiple system operators (MSOs), the core of every network is the headend. It’s the foundation needed to support the demand for new connectivity, capacity, and speed. As the outside plant is transforming in hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) networks, evolution within the headend is required to support the shift away from heavy coax infrastructure to a fiber deep network. Our fiber optic hardware, which includes frames, housings, and cassettes, and cable assembly solutions are transforming to help you support your subscribers wherever they live with faster and improved performance.

Node + 0 Headend Architectures

CATV HFC networks continue to change as bandwidth and service demands from the customers keeps growing. CATV operators continue to turn to fiber optics to help them meet the growing demand. Architectures like Remote Phy and DOCSIS 3.1 are all relying on driving fiber deeper into the network. One challenge in doing this is… “How can an operator bring fiber closer to the user while using the current installed base of fiber that has been deployed”. One way to solve this is by using a multi-wavelength architecture to deliver fiber deeper into the network. For more information about port replication, rack layouts, and example headend architectures, listen to our Node + 0 webinar!
