CommScope builds new remote PHY device

CommScope has announced the continuing advancement of its Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) portfolio, with the introduction of its RD1322 2×2 Remote PHY Device (RPD), the company said.

The new module — set to begin service provider testing later this year — will install directly into CommScope´s market-leading base of NC4- and OM4-series fiber nodes. This promises to extend the benefits of DAA to both traditional segmented and fiber-deep architectures.

CommScope is in a strong position to help operators get to market faster and more affordably by leveraging their existing infrastructure investments on the path to 10G. The RD1322 is the newest addition to a growing portfolio of Outside Plant (OSP) DAA solutions that enable operators to build upon their installed base of nodes to advance their plans for Extended Spectrum DOCSIS® (ESD), Full Duplex DOCSIS (FDX), DAA, Remote PON, Wireless Backhaul, DOCSIS 3.1, and more. This is especially valuable in the labor-intensive OSP domain.

CommScope´s 10G roadmap comprises its growing portfolio of traditional and DAA OSP solutions, along with a continuing commitment to innovative wired and wireless Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) and Inside Plant (ISP) solutions. CommScope offers operators multiple migration paths to 10G Service Level Agreements (SLAs), giving them the freedom to customize their evolution based on their unique needs.

CommScope´s extensive DAA portfolio includes its RPD, Remote PON, R-PHY Shelf, Video Unified Edge (VUE), ICX® Switch family, and hybrid E6000® I-CCAP/CCAP Core products. It also features a full suite of virtualized products, including the E6000 Virtual Core (vCore) and vManager framework of tools, including industry-leading monitoring, management, and traffic engineering functions.

CommScope (NASDAQ: COMM) and the recently acquired ARRIS and Ruckus Networks are redefining tomorrow by shaping the future of wired and wireless communications. Discover more at www.commscope.com.
