Opti Max OM4100 4x4 Segmentable Node

Industry leading technology facilitates full segmentation in a modular platform

Opti Max OM4100 4x4 Segmentable Node

  • Enables bandwidth expansion via downstream and upstream segmentation
  • Shares optics modules and accessories with OM2741 2x2 optical node, which leverages sparing and training
  • Features premium low noise receiver with wide optical range that enables designs with lower inputs while still maintaining maximum typical RF output levels
  • Includes optical AGC that accommodates optical network changes without compromising subscriber experience
  • Maximizes service group flexibility and supports aggregation with SFP-based digital return

Cable operators are looking for new subscriber revenue and higher average revenue per subscriber without major CAPEX. ARRIS offers a suite of products and solutions that help operators seamlessly and easily stay in line with future goals, add new services, and strongly position against the competition. Cable operators need optimal performance in their network architectures to support expanded service offerings such as HDTV, Video on Demand (VOD), VoIP and high speed data/internet. The ARRIS Opti Max™ OM4100, 4 output segmentable node uses industry leading technology and design to facilitate full 4x4 segmentation in a modular, pay as you grow platform for optical to RF (RF to optical in the upstream) signal conversion. Full 4x4 segmentation capability in the downstream and upstream path provides the ability to reduce service group sizes by up to 75% for increased capacity and more targeted services, without having to run new trunk fiber or install additional nodes. The optional premium high gain receiver with on-board automatic gain control (AGC), coupled with GaN technology, operates at a lower optical input level, allowing nodes to be placed deeper into the network for expanded footprint. The OM4100 modular design provides a high level of scalability, which enables operators to deploy minimal configurations today and expand as subscriber demands increase. Expansion options include migration from a 1x1 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™ multiwavelength 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. The OM4100 is frequency split upgradable to meet future bandsplit requirements.

  • Up to full 4 x 4 downstream and upstream segmentation capability
  • Support for 42/54 MHz , 55/70 MHz , 65/85 MHz , and 85/105 MHz bandwidth splits
  • 1 GHz technology
  • Optional digital upstream transceiver with Small Form Pluggable (SFP)s to support 18 CWDM and 49 DWDM wavelengths for service group aggregation
  • Node specific optical passive design for optical multi wavelength support
  • Supports 1310/1550nm DFB, CWDM, DWDM, and CORWave™ multi wavelength technologies
  • Optional 1310 nm and 1550 nm DFB and 18 CWDM analog upstream transmitters

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.
