Legacy Upstream TX DFB Upgrades


ATX’s HFC Enhance line offers a comprehensive assortment of upgrade or replacement modules for legacy nodes from a variety of manufacturers, without the adaptive clipping mitigation of the ART. Product offerings include transmitters (1310/1550, F-P, DFB, and CWDM) and receivers (870 and 1000 MHz). ATX also offers cost-effective node segmentation solutions.

Drop-in node upgrade modules include but are not limited to the following*:

  • ADC / C-COR: ISX-3022 / 3030 / 3040
  • Cisco / Scientific-Atlanta: 6920, 6940, 6942 and 6944 Gainmaker   

Node segmentation solution offerings include but are not limited to the following*:

  • ADC / C-COR: ISX-30XX
  • Cisco / Scientific-Atlanta: 69XX

HFC Enhance Drop-in Node Upgrade Modules

  • Allows for an overall node performance enhancement in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner
  • A variety of laser technologies (F-P, DFB, CWDM) and powers (0-3 mW) allows operators to satisfy any application
  • Dual transmitter option in the module increases number of return path segmentations possible and/or offers an option for implementing fiber link redundancy
  • Dual transmitter option (module specific) in conjunction with CWDM allows for ultra space-efficient node segmentation solutions
  • Low input requirement on receiver modules (-8 to +2 dBm) in conjunction with high RF output allow operators to split forward path without degrading CNR
  • Unique low power designs minimize thermal dissipation thereby increasing module performance and lifetime
  • See individual module datasheets for more details

HFC Enhance Node Segmentation Solutions

  • ATX’s HFC Enhance segmentation solutions allows operators to segment legacy/unsupported nodes both cost-effectively and with minimal customer service disruption
  • ATX’s transmitters and receivers ensure optimum network performance is achieved
  • Use of WDM/CWDM/DWDM technology allows for full segmentation up to full 4×4 without the requirement for additional fibers
  • Far more cost-effective solution versus deploying new nodes when viewed from a capital expenditure and labor standpoint
  • Designed for easy installation to minimize customer service disruption time
