CommScope Announces Turn-Key Field Solution for RF Over Glass Deployments

Leading developers of advanced wired and wireless solutions, CommScope, has released the new FDH3000 AgileMax Cabinet for RF-over-Glass (RFoG) deployments. The solution combines CommScope’s proven AgileMax active optical distribution technology which prevents Optical Beat Interference (OBI) in RFoG deployments with its FDH3000 fiber distribution hub and integrated splitter cabinet. Together, they enable HFC network operators to easily install the AgileMax platform into an existing Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH) location to improve their networks’ upstream and downstream capacity and data speeds.

AgileMax is one of the industry’s most widely deployed technologies for preventing OBI in traditional RFoG architectures. Using a patented active-splitter technology, it enables operators to deploy high-capacity OBI-free, FTTH networks leveraging existing DOCSIS infrastructure.

The combined solution with the cabinet leverages CommScope’s extensive and vertically integrated portfolio to ensure easy installation of AgileMax in the field. The cabinet supports standard 19-inch rack mounted equipment using a patented swing frame design that houses the AgileMax product as well as additional passive products for maximum flexibility. As a result, operators can implement AgileMax as an end-to-end solution without reliance on third-party vendors—lowering capital expenditures and ensuring optimum performance, with a fully tested and integrated solution.

According to Kevin Keefe, Senior Vice President and Segment Leader, Broadband Networks at CommScope, the FDH3000 AgileMax Cabinet is a turn-key solution for HFC customers looking to eliminate OBI from their RFoG existing installations and improve network capacity and data speeds. It’s a showcase for the efficiencies and strengths of the combined company—integrating components of legacy businesses to enable better cost savings for customers as they build out their fiber networks of the future.

The FDH3000 AgileMax Cabinet will be available this month directly to CommScope customers.
