RF over glass DOCSIS via optical fiber
Facing today's competition from incumbent operators there is no
better way for cable TV network operators than optical fibers for
fast broadband connection. An important milestone is radio
frequency over glass (RFoG) which allows cable TV network
operators to adhere to the well-known and popular DOCSIS
broadcasting method while at the same time fiber can be used
instead of coaxial cable to access subscribers. RFoG technology
enables termination of up to 64 locations on one PON splitter.
High bit rate
In addition to an available data rate of several Gbit / s in the
forward direction, also a peak data rate comparable to that of a
pure FTTH network in the reverse direction is available.
Network management for RFoG
Thanks to the remote control standardized acording to IEC60728-
14 most problems that occur during installation or while in
operation can be analyzed and fixed remotely.
The total cost of the IEC based management for RFoG fiber
nodes is considerably lower than the already established and
standardized methods of fiber node monitoring using HMS.
BKtel's RFoG fiber node XON65.BFN offers the possibility to
switch to the "always-on" operation mode whenever an increased
demand of bandwidth occurs at a certain location. The node can
be used seamlessly in point-to-point operation and no on-site
reconfiguration or exchange of the fiber node is required.
