Why Upgrading Your GainMaker Amplifiers is as Easy as 1-2-3
By Joe McGarvey, Director, Marketing |
Earlier this year, ATX Networks completed a technology licensing agreement with Cisco® that effectively extended the life and evolutionary path of the venerable GainMaker® amplifier product family. Ever since, we’ve been working tirelessly to make it as easy and seamless as possible for current GainMaker customers to protect and grow your existing investment.
For starters, our family of GigaXtend™ GMC 1.2GHz amplifiers are based on the original Cisco design drawings and documents, making ours the only authentic GainMaker-compatible HFC amplifier portfolio on the planet.
We’ve boiled down all the other reasons why upgrading your GainMaker installed base has never been easier — or more futureproof — into the top three reasons for turning to ATX for your outside plant upgrade needs:
Upgrading your existing 1GHz amps to 1.2GHz, along with a mid- or high-split boost, is an easy and cost-effective way to address return path congestion.
Pandemic-instigated Work-From-Home (WFH) policies and other two-way applications have strained the return path capacity of some broadband services. Upgrading your existing 1GHz amps to 1.2GHz, along with a mid- or high-split boost, is an easy and cost-effective way to address return path congestion. But not every amplifier out there delivers the necessary gain to compensate for cable loss at high-split frequencies. That’s not an issue with GigaXtend GMC amps. Mid-splits, high-splits — no problem.
We’ve focused meticulous attention on making the introduction of GigaXtend GMC amps into your network as disruption-free as possible, striving to eliminate the need for requalifications. ATX will even provide a detailed list of any improvements we’ve made, including the replacement of major components. If you still feel trials are necessary, ATX is happy to work with you to meet your optimal timelines.
We’re working on streamlining future spectrum upgrades, giving you the ability to move to 1.8GHz and potentially higher with minimum disruptions to your outside plant. Only GainMaker-compatible GigaXtend GMC 1.2GHz products give you the ability to start building the network of the future starting today, and with the peace of mind your investment will be protected for decades to come.
