Integra Optics, a global provider of carrier-grade fiber optic components and custom engineered networking solutions, announces the launch of their new hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) product line. Integra Optics emerges as an alternative supplier of HFC equipment in a market where HFC products are mostly sourced by larger, less agile suppliers, who often send customers to distributing partners rather than providing them with direct service.
Integra Optics designs, manufactures and distributes all the HFC equipment, which includes transmitters, EDFAs and return path receivers that are available in individual, rack-mounted form factors or in high-density chassis for mass deployment of HFC services. All products are high-quality, low-noise, DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1 compatible devices that provide clear, reliable and error-free transport for video, data and voice services. In addition, the new products easily drop-in to an existing network architecture, reduce rack space and power consumption, resulting in significant cost savings.
Bolstered by Integra’s new R&D business unit, the product suite also includes a unique Quad Return Technology providing sub-octave RF (SR) four or two channel return solutions designed to support the demand of HSD and DOCSIS3.1. This drop-in solution to existing HFC nodes dramatically increases the analog return bandwidth to 1G on a single fiber using current RF return channels, supporting 42 MHz, 65 MHz, 85 MHz and 250 MHz spectrum modulated at 256 QAM with support up to 4096-QAM.
