Remote PHY Node
A compact and cost-effective node for Remote PHY deployments
Part of Harmonic’s CableOS™ software-based CCAP solution, the CableOS Ripple-1 Remote PHY node (RPN) is a hardened outdoor enclosure for networks tasked with delivering high-speed data, video and voice services over coax. Ripple-1 houses the Pebble-1 Remote PHY device (RPD) and connects with CableOS Core CMTS software to support evolving fiber deep deployments while allowing for future network growth. The RPN features an integrated RF launch amplifier that provides superior RF performance and built-in remote configuration functionality. For added reliability, Ripple-1 supports a dual redundant power supply option with included temperature sensing and AC input and DC output voltage monitoring.
- Full DOCSIS 3.0/3.1, VOD, SDV and linear broadcast Remote PHY functionality
- Supports up to 1218 MHz forward and 204 MHz return bandwidth
- Integrated modular RF launch amplifier with four high-output level ports
- Houses single or dual RPDs for network growth with automatically configured segmentation
CableOS lets you save up to 75% on space and power costs in a centralized deployment, and up to 90% in a distributed deployment.
CableOS Ripple-1 Features
RF Launch Amplifier
The integrated RF launch amplifier in Ripple-1 functions as a modular tray that replaces traditional plug-ins and provides superior RF performance and built-in remote configuration functionality.
Remote configuration with the CableOS Core software simplifies initial installation and module replacement, eliminates the need for third-party monitoring solutions, and enables quick remote troubleshooting while reducing truck rolls.
Multiple configurations of the Ripple-1 RPN using one or two Pebble-1 RPDs are available, each with one downstream and one or two upstream ports.
Ripple-1 supports dual redundant power supplies with included temperature sensing and AC input and DC output voltage monitoring, providing operators the assurance of confirmed power supply health and enabling proactive replacement.
