Cable MSOs are deploying more fiber in their networks than ever before, but they face the challenge of executing this strategy in a cost effective manner. Minimizing upgrade cost and complexity by maintaining their headend and customer premises equipment are key factors to success. In addition, as take rates, high speed data service speed tiers, and data usage continue to increase strategies are needed to mitigate the rising occurrence of optical beat interference (OBI).

ADTRAN Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) solutions with OBI Mitigation enable cable operators to extend service offerings over fiber to residential, business and MDU markets. These solutions do not require powering at the splitter cabinet and use conventional optical splitters ultimately saving OpEx.

The ADTRAN 1602-O RFoG micronode with OBI Mitigation is the perfect solution for Cable MSOs who are making the transition to fiber, but are still looking to utilize the Radio Frequency (RF) signals generated by their current headend equipment. The ADTRAN 1602-O provides a cost effective solution for converting these RF signals at the customer premises to useable signals that can traverse the legacy Coax wiring present in many homes.
