AFN-M (MDU Mini-Node) FTTX - HFC

Antronix Premise Node (AFN) M- Series MDU High-Output FTTX-HFC


Antronix introduces the Antronix Premise Node Platform 1 . 2 G H z (AFN). The cost-effective high output AFN has been designed to receive a full complement of video, data and telephony via single optical fiber and converts the signal to RF for distribution via existing RF networks. Various optical return transmitters are available to complete the two-way communications link. An available WDM allows a single fiber to carry both forward and return optical signals. The AFN allows the systems designer to bring fiber directly into commercial applications. Additional applications include MDU, hotels, businesses, schools and colleges, residential homes and government. The AFN is available in a variety of configurations. The full-featured M-Series (AFN- MSA-xxxx-xxx) provides a constant +52 dBmV RF output over a wide optical input of -6 dBm to +2 dBm. Meanwhile, the return optical transmitter can be selected from a high-performance Distributed Feedback (DFB) lasers in either 1310 nm or CWDM wavelengths. The return path transmitter for two-way CATV service features an optional external wideband (5- 300MHz) RF input, which eliminates the need for costly sub-band modulators and demodulators in local origination upstream video applications. The AFN is designed to interoperate with most analog optical transmitters and return receivers from leading manufacturers. For easy installation and setup, the AFN provides field accessible gain and slope controls, while an external DC optical power monitor allows installation without an optical power meter. LED indicators further simplify installation.
