Technetix introduces the Gamechanger

Technetix is delighted to announce its latest innovation with the launch of the DBT-1800C. It is no coincidence that this announcement is made in the same week that the industry staple, the GainMaker®, is discontinued. If you are concerned about replacement modules for existing GainMakers® in your network, then Technetix has a solution* and more importantly a next-generation product for future network upgrades.

Technetix Add XGS-PON to Final Mile Access Solutions

Technetix is delighted to announce its 10/10G symmetrical XGS-PON solution and 10G EPON solution, including a flexible and pluggable micro 10G PON Optical Line Terminal (OLT), powered by technology from TiBiT Communications.

This addition to Technetix’ fibre portfolio further enhances the world class DBx access platform, which can now offer XGS-PON and 10G EPON in addition to traditional HFC, RFoG and Remote PHY services. It is feasible to build a high RF level RPD node and OLT in one housing using these building blocks, as this modular and flexible solution evolves with the needs of the network operator. There are approaching 1 million DBx units in the field which can now deliver high speed business services via fibre to enterprise, add 5G backhaul into existing networks, as well as serving more traditional PON FTTH network architectures.

Unleashing Endless Possibilities for Cable Networks

There has always been a clear divide between upstream and downstream data splits, making it possible to upgrade signals in the existing network using by-pass filters and diplex filters in the active components. But this separation has become a limiting factor when upgrading the network; each upgrade requires new filters and additional labour. Technetix has now developed a bi-directional amplifier, without the need for diplex filters. This article will explain how to create more bandwidth and flexibility within the same infrastructure and how this technology will make 1.8GHz ESD installations feasible without amplifier respacing.

All roads lead to DOCSIS 4.0

Designing and maintaining a high-performance Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) network is a bit of a dance. You manage your signal strength along the transmission path to avoid two extremes: (1) too high a transmission level and you distort your signals, and (2) too low a transmission level and your weak signal will get lost in the noise.

One of the key features of the new DOCSIS 4.0 specification is expanding our cable plant spectrum from today's 750MHz/860MHz/1GHz to 1.8GHz. This nearly doubles the spectral capacity for much of today's HFC networks.

The Journey to DOCSIS 4.0

Demand for bandwidth over the cable network is higher than ever, as domestic and commercial usage increases daily, operators are reporting increases of over 20% in downstream traffic and increases of at least 50% in the upstream in the last few months. 

Technetix recognised the need for flexibility and, as a result, developed the Direction Neutral Amplifier (DNA), an innovative solution for CATV networks with patented flexible split technology. Lab tests have shown that, in combination with a Distributed Gain Architecture (DGA), the DNA will improve network performance and flexibility, while power consumption decreases by 30%.

Technetix sees demand for supplies surge as cable ops bulk up self-install kits

11th May 2020, The COVID-19 pandemic has altered many aspects of the cable and broadband landscape, forcing some operators to quickly augment their residential networks to stand up to spikes in traffic as consumers stayed at home.

Technetix has been shoring up inventory as demand for quick access to these components and supplies ramped up. In fact, during the pandemic Technetix has seen these needs extend well above those caused by other smaller-scale events or disruptions, such as hurricanes, that required the company to accelerate access to cabling, connectors and other types of gear required for self-install kits, according to Sandy Howe, EVP and president, Americas, at Technetix.
