Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications
networks, will showcase its complete bandwidth-enabling portfolio,
including its new Passive
Optical Network (PON) solution and upcoming Converge Cable Access
Platform (CCAP) platform during the SCTE
Cable-Tec Expo® October 17-19 in Orlando.
“CommScope continues to introduce infrastructure that connects people
and technologies through every evolution, as well as assist operators on
what technologies to deploy to support their ever increasing demand for
bandwidth,” said Ric Johnsen, senior vice president, Broadband,
CommScope. “We believe CommScope is unique in offering a complete
solution portfolio allowing operators to provide consumers with today’s
advanced services while also preparing them for demands of the future.”
The new PON family of solutions provides MSOs (multiple system
operators) the ability to deliver advanced voice, video and data
services to their subscribers using fiber optic networks. The solution
has been designed to be deployed in various situations including
residential FTTx, access networks for commercial accounts,
multi-dwelling units, commercial in-building, security and building
automation and wireless access points.
In addition to the PON solution, CommScope will once again display its award-winningUniversal
Wideband Edge QAM solution, the LxS-16016. The Universal Wideband
Edge QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) solution maximizes a
network’s flexibility, allowing operators to roll out their existing
MPEG video and DOCSIS® data and voice services. It also supports higher
bandwidth and next-generation IP based services over HFC (hybrid fiber
coax) networks without the need for additional hardware or service
disruptions. It is designed to reduce power consumption in headend/hub
environments through consolidation of equipment.
For the first time, CommScope will showcase its upcoming CCAP
platform—the CSP (Converged Services Platform) family of products—to the
industry. The CSP product line takes the industry-leading capabilities
of our current Edge QAM solution (Universal Wideband) and adds support
for DOCSIS upstream and MAC (media access control), native IP processing
and EPON/EPOC (EPON over Coax) support in a denser, more scalable
CommScope will continue to advise MSOs on how to add intelligence into
their networks, allowing them to make adjustments to parameters
improving network performance and increasing overall operational
efficiency. CommScope will also participate in the SCTE Smart Energy
Management Showcase (Booth No. 11), where it will show a presentation on
its various energy
management solutions, including its hydrogen
