ADTRAN releases RFoG with mitigation technology

ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ: ADTN), a provider of next-generation open networking solutions, has released its Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) solution with Optical Beat Interference (OBI) mitigation technology, the company said.

This RFoG solution accelerates an MSO´s FTTH initiatives by supporting the reuse of existing CATV assets within both the headend and home. This extends the return on investment cycle while smoothing the transition from hybrid fiber coax and CATV-based triple play to Gigabit FTTH and IPTV-ready deployment models. As RFoG deployments increase in density, the likelihood of OBI occurring greatly increases.

OBI is caused by simultaneous upstream optical transmissions by multiple cable modems to impaired reception at all upstream frequencies impacting key applications like voice, live video and social media.

ADTRAN offers an extensive set of rapidly deployable RFoG solutions that feature an OBI mitigation MicroNode that uniquely does not require new centralized cabinet construction, which can often be delayed by right of way and power sourcing issues. This scalable ADTRAN RFoG OBI solution provides a distributed approach to OBI mitigation that smooths the transition to FTTH networks and IPTV-based triple play services.

ADTRAN, Inc. is a global provider of networking and communications equipment. ADTRAN´s products enable voice, data, video and Internet communications across a variety of network infrastructures. ADTRAN solutions are currently in use by service providers, private enterprises, government organizations, and millions of individual users worldwide.
