Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications
networks, will introduce what it believes to be the cable industry’s
first all-digital, carrier-grade wideband edge QAM (quadrature amplitude
modulation) solution—the LxS-16016—during The
Cable Show this week.
With the introduction of the CommScope LxS-16016 wideband edge QAM, the
company is continuing its efforts to expand its product offerings to
multi-system operators (MSO). A dense, scalable QAM solution is vital to
supporting more of the advanced and next-generation services over HFC
(hybrid fiber coax) networks, and enhances CommScope’s efforts to
provide a complete solutions offering—starting at the head-end and
finishing at the home.
“Cost effective, scalable QAM is critical to supporting the applications
that are growing in importance, such as video on demand, switched
digital video, broadcast video, DOCSIS®, and cable IPTV on the same
physical redundant radio frequency (RF) port,” said Shane Eleniak, vice
president, Advanced Broadband Solutions, CommScope. “MSOs now have the
opportunity to seamlessly add bandwidth as needed in the most cost
effective manner. The CommScope LxS-16016 wideband edge QAM introduces
our customers to an entirely new era for enabling new service offerings.”
The CommScope LxS-16016 wideband edge QAM offers up to 160 QAM channels
on each of 16 RF (radio frequency) ports totaling 2560 QAMs in a small,
fully redundant 4 RU chassis. This density allows cable operators to
have the flexibility of rolling out new services in the future without
the need for costly truck rolls or disrupting service. By directly
digitizing the entire 1 GHz band, the LxS-16016 wideband edge QAM
achieves superior RF and enhanced remote control flexibility.
Additionally, the density of this new solution can help operators reduce
capital and operating expenses by significantly lowering power
consumption, significant requirements for power, cabling, rack space and
The Cable Show, hosted by the National Cable and Telecommunications
Association (NCTA), will take place June 14-16, 2011 in Chicago, IL at
McCormick Place. CommScope will exhibit at Booth 131.
