Opti Max OM4100 4x4 Segmentable Node

Industry leading technology facilitates full segmentation in a modular platform

Opti Max OM4100 4x4 Segmentable Node

  • Protects operators’ investment with modular expansion as network demands grow
  • Reduces the need for additional fiber by supporting CWDM, DWDM and CORWave™ multi-wavelength technologies
  • Optimizes fiber deep architectures with GaN technology and low noise, high gain receivers
  • Optical AGC ensures RF outputs remain constants, reducing the need for costly EDFA’s to balance redundant fiber paths
  • Flexible configurations include Local Channel injection to support Multiple Dwelling Units

The OM4100 modular design provides a high level of scalability, which enables operators to deploy minimal confgurations today and expand as subscriber demands increase. Expansion options include migration from a 1x4 node to full downstream and upstream 2x2 and 4x4 segmentation. Scalability is achieved simply by adding in additional upstream transmitters and downstream receivers along with simple plug-in segmentation modules. The OM4100 supports Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM), Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) and CORWave™ multi-wavelength technologies to efficiently use existing fiber architecture and avoid the cost and time of installing additional fiber in the plant. Digital return options with environmentally hardened SFP transmitters provide consistent performance regardless of link budget and supports future migration to more complex digital encoding schemes. Multiplexing two data streams onto a single fiber utilizing digital return saves CAPEX and expands upstream bandwidth capacity. Optional remote monitoring of OM4100 with digital return (5-42 MHz currently) through CORView EMS. The premium high gain optical receiver option, coupled with Gallium Nitride (GaN) Hybrid Technology in the RF module, combines high gain and improved noise performance for optimized fiber deep architectures. The on-board automatic gain control (AGC) setting on the high gain receiver ensures that RF outputs will remain consistent over a range of varying optical input levels to the receiver - eliminating costly ‘over-design’ in redundant networks or sacrificing performance on the primary link to achieve identical optical levels at the receiver location.

The ARRIS Opti Max OM4100 1 GHz 4 x 4 segmentable node is part of the ARRIS Opti Max node platform for optical to RF (RF to optical in the upstream) signal conversion. 1GHz bandwidth will enable cable operators to increase downstream capacity for additional service offerings such as HDTV, Video on Demand (VOD), VoIP and high speed data / internet. 4 x 4 segmentation in both the downstream and upstream path provides the ability to reduce service group size by 75% for increased capacity and more targeted services when needed, without having to run new trunk fiber or install additional nodes.
