Features and Benefits
The ARRIS OM4100 Opti Max™ 4x4 segmentable node provides a high level of scalability, which enables operators to deploy minimal configurations today and expand in the future as subscriber demands increase. Expansion options include migration from a 1x1 node to full downstream and upstream 2x2 and 4x4 segmentation.
Operators can achieve scalability simply by adding in additional upstream transmitters and downstream receivers along with simple plug‐in segmentation modules. The OM4100's optional premium high gain receiver with on‐board automatic gain control (AGC), coupled with GaN technology, operates at a lower optical input level, allowing operators to place nodes deeper into the network for expanded footprint.
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 support 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 high‐gain receiver's on‐board AGC setting ensures that RF outputs will remain consistent over a range of varying optical input levels to the receiver, eliminating costly 'over‐design' in redundant networks or sacrificing performance on the primary link to achieve identical optical levels at the receiver location. In addition, the OM4100 is frequency split upgradable to meet future bandsplit requirements.
