Deploy Remote PHY today with Technetix

Technetix, leading global broadband cable and telecommunications equipment provider, will be showcasing their award winning DBx Remote PHY node solution at ANGA COM 2018, which has been developed incorporating Harmonic Inc's Pebble-1 Remote PHY device (RPD). This RPD is compatible with the Harmonic CableOS Virtual CMTS and many other industry core CMTS systems. Optionally also powered by Virtual Segmentation™, this solution allows operators to deploy Remote PHY even faster than using traditional fibre uplinks.

The DBx range comprises an innovative crossover design, it is a field upgradeable modular platform that enables a flexible configuration, allowing hybrid mixtures of RF or optical links for gradual migration from amplifier to fibre deep node to Remote PHY.

Technetix has now over 500,000 of the very successful DBx units embedded in broadband networks globally, all of which can be upgraded to have a Remote PHY device immediately - it is simply a case of adding to the modular platform.

The Technetix RPD solution is the most power efficient RPD node in the market. The complete solution with a dual high-level output RPD device (DBD-1200-RPD) consumes less than 50W. This, combined with Virtual Segmentation™, makes Remote PHY deployment possible in the simplest and most cost-effective way. Multiple successful field trials are currently underway across Europe.

The Technetix DBx platform with Remote PHY node is best-in-class differentiating itself in the market in several fundamental ways. Jan Ariesen, Chief Technology Officer of Technetix, says "Our modular platform works seamlessly with other vendor’s equipment. Technetix develops solutions capable for today and for the future. I am delighted that we have been able to work with Harmonic, a partner who shares these same principles."

Part of the groundbreaking Harmonic CableOS virtualised cable access solution, the CableOS Pebble-1 Remote PHY device supports full-spectrum DOCSIS 3.1 specifications with superior performance at high output power. Ian Graham, Senior Vice President of Sales, EMEA and LATAM, at Harmonic says, "This combined solution unlocks the potential of Remote PHY for operators, cost-effectively enabling higher data capacities and faster multi-gigabit services".

Harmonic and Technetix invites you to see and discuss this leading solution for Remote PHY at ANGA COM on 12th June 2018 yourself in Hall 7, booth E41.
