MACOM Showcases Industry Leading Portfolio of CATV and Broadband Devices enabling Next-generation High-speed Cable Networks at Booth 432 at Cable-Tec Expo’14

Cable-Tec Expo 2014

LOWELL, Mass.--()--M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc. (“MACOM”), a leading supplier of high performance RF, microwave, and millimeter wave products, will showcase its industry leading portfolio of CATV and broadband devices enabling the evolution of modern cable networks at Cable-Tec Expo’14, Denver Colorado, in booth 432.

To keep pace with the exponential growth in data demand while leveraging previously deployed fiber and copper, cable networks are working toward the deployment of DOCSIS 3.1 equipment. This requires changes to the active and passive components within the infrastructure and customer premise equipment, such as higher power, linearity and bandwidth amplifiers, improved rejection filters, and a full new suite of power dividers and couplers – essentially a full refresh of the equipment toolkit.

MACOM addresses the toolkit refresh with a suite of new product families which will be showcased at Cable-Tec Expo’14 in booth 432.

  • DOCSIS3.1 push-pull and power doubler GaAs solutions in SMT plastic format. These GaAs infrastructure amplifiers offer multiple system operators higher linearity and output power with extended 1.2GHz bandwidth.
  • Diplex filters that deliver very high isolation and return loss while simultaneously maintaining the lowest possible insertion loss. The higher power levels combined with extended frequency requirements of DOCSIS3.1 place much greater demands on the passive components in the system amplifier. Passives need to exhibit multi-octave flat response and not contribute to system distortion.
  • Market leading platform of high performance, surface mount triplex filters, which cover the 42/54, 65/85, 85/105 MHz, and 204/258 MHz bands, are MoCA 2.0 compliant and fully footprint compatible, allowing for simplified front-end designs and quicker design cycles. Extremely high performance filter technology is needed to simultaneously support next generation MoCA systems and new DOCSIS 3.1 interfaces to the core network.
  • 300 MHz reverse path single-ended, differential and variable gain amplifiers, which meet the challenges of next generation architectures because DOCSIS3.1 extends frequency bands in both the forward and reverse paths.
  • FTTx amplifiers that have been developed specifically to meet Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) and Passive Optical Network (PON) system requirements.

MACOM’s CATV Product Managers, Graham Board and Alan Miller, will be at the show to answer any inquiries or questions.
