Opti Max OM4100

1 GHz 4x4 Segmentable Node

Opti Max OM4100

  • Upgrade network capacity, quality, and reliability without costly fiber construction
  • Improve fiber utilization with high-performance, multi-wavelength, legacy-friendly optical nodes
  • Deploy minimum configuration today; expand incrementally as demand requires with user-friendly node segmentation
  • Increase the capacity of the network already deployed -- inexpensively and incrementally
  • Support for 42/54 MHz, 55/70 MHz, 65/85 MHz, and 85/105 MHz bandwidth splits

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 1 GHz, 4 output segmentable node uses industry leading technology and design to facilitate full 4 x 4 segmentation in a modular, pay as you grow platform for optical to RF (RF to optical in the upstream) signal conversion. Full 4 x 4 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, provides greater capacity and allows nodes to be placed deeper into the network for expanded footprint. The OM4100 modular design allows 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 1 x 4 node to full downstream and upstream 2 x 2 and 4 x 4 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 for maximization of the available optical spectrum in fiber scarce architectures. Digital return path options with environmentally hardened SFP transmitters provide consistent performance regardless of link budget, supports future migration to more complex digital encoding schemes, and can be remotely monitored through the CORView Element Management System.
