UCrypt PassPort

UCrypt PassPort

The ATX UCrypt PassPort is a QAM-to-IP media gateway designed to pass encrypted video from existing edge QAM equipment through IP-based CCAP video cores or directly to the CIN. The solution features a modular design and market-leading density that delivers up to 320 processed QAMs in a single RU. It is the ideal solution for enabling MSOs to address video encryption licensing and interoperability issues that threaten to delay their transition to a distributed access architecture (DAA) model, as well as providing smaller MSOs with an alternative to implementing costly and complex CCAP video cores.

  • Accelerates DAA Deployments – Reduces DAA deployment complexity by alleviating the need to re-configure all video muxes and parameters in the CCAP video core and integrate the CCAP video core into back-office systems
  • Delivers Cost Efficiencies – Modular design enables MSOs to align resources and product capabilities with real-world demand and to upgrade on a pay-as-you-grow model
  • Improves Operational Efficiency – Support for a wide variety of broadcast and narrowcast operating modes allows for maximizing the efficiency of the equipment’s capacity according to the video lineup architecture
  • Saves Rack Space – Industry-leading density of up to 320 QAMs in a single rack unit enable MSOs to conserve prescious headend real estate and reduce power consumption
  • Loosens Proprietary Constraints – Platform’s agnostic nature expands universe of potential equipment suppliers by freeing up MSOs to deploy equipment from any CCAP provider, without fear of encountering encryption/decryption compatibility issues with the installed base of set-top boxes (STBs) and other subscriber equipment
  • Provides Peace of Mind – Advanced redundancy support provides MSOs with the confidence that critical services will operate without disruption, even in the case of hardware failure


  • Total capacity of up to 320 processed QAMs in 1RU
  • Modular design can be purchased and populated with 1 to 4 demod cards per 1RU chassis
  • Supports multiple selectable operating modes to accommodate various broadcast and narrowcast architectures
  • No shared common resources or points of failure
  • Demod cards operate completely independently
  • Redundant AC/DC power supplies
