  • Supports all architectures — Applicable across all geographies and architectures, including Centralized and Distributed Access Architectures (CAA/DAA). GigXtend is also compatible with Standard Spectrum DOCSIS (FDD) and Full Duplex DOCSIS (FDX).
  • Futureproof — Faceplate upgradeable to more than 3GHz, the GigaXtend solution is designed to play an essential role in the evolution to Extended Spectrum DOCSIS (ESD).
  • Industry-Leading Performance — Leverages unique and patented power-passing technologies to establish new benchmarks for bandwidth, RF loss, hum modulation and AC loss.
  • Extended Reach — GigaXtend’s minimized insertion loss performance enable MSOs to effectively extend the reach of nodes and amplifiers. It is especially effective for cable operators pursuing fiber deep (FD) Node+0 initiatives, where coaxial construction costs or the number of nodes can be minimized in a serving area.
  • Operational Savings — MSOs can leverage GigaXtend’s low-loss properties to achieve operational savings by reducing a node’s RF output power, thereby reducing AC powering levels.
  • Deployment Flexibility — GigaXtend is compatible with FDX architectures, but also offers cable operators a feasible path for achieving 10Gbps symmetrical bandwidth speeds through Extended Spectrum DOCSIS.


  • Unique and patented power-passing technology
  • Lowest industry loss at 1.2GHz
  • Faceplate upgradeable to 3GHz or higher
  • Plug-in signal conditioners (CE/CS/RA)
  • Dimensions consistent with wide body tap
  • Screw-less hardline 90° entry connector
  • Improved Hum Modulation performance
  • Environmentally hardened enclosures
  • All power-passing ports with removable fuses
