Evolving the Next-Generation Digital Video Network with high-density Gigabit Ethernet-optimized, QAM Products and Solutions
The Cisco uMG9800 Series offers cable operators ideal, cost-effective solutions for video-on-demand (VoD) services. The series is comprised of the Cisco uMG9850 QAM Modulea line card that fits into a Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Switch, and the Cisco uMG9820 QAM Gatewaya one-rack unit chassis. The products perform QAM modulation and upconversion of digital video streams and also function as IP-to-MPEG-2 gateways between the Gigabit Ethernet transport network and the hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) access network. The products enhance scalability, allowing custom configuration of QAM densities based on video-on-demand (VoD) service deployment needs.
The Cisco uMG9800 Series simplifies video architecture design and eases network operations. High-availability features offer hot-swappable online insertion and removal of QAM modules on active systems. Optimized for Gigabit Ethernet technology, the products accept full line-rate video feeds and introduce networking functionality to environments that are traditionally hard-wired using older, legacy architectures. Cisco uMG9800 Series offers solutions for next-generation digital video networks.
