As cable operators launch more interactive services, bandwidth becomes a critical operational need. Scientific Atlanta's compact fiber deep nodes let you push "fiber deeper" toward your subscribers to maximize the availability of network bandwidth.
Taking the fiber to the last active eliminates the need for coaxial amplifiers after the node, which translates into savings in materials and in installation and maintenance costs. With the compact fiber deep node, you can minimize expenditures by reducing the number of system components required while making more bandwidth available to individual users.
The compact fiber deep node is a small, less expensive high-level output node that lets you plan site expansions to reduce costs up front while allowing for easy future expansion. Compact nodes feature two-way transmission, and reverse transmission is possible from both coaxial outputs.
The compact fiber deep node can also be configured with a Scientific Atlanta status monitoring transponder. The transponder, in conjunction with Transmission Network Control System (TNCS), enables remote monitoring of critical node-related parameters, and remote control of the built-in 3-state reverse switch for ingress isolation.
