Lindsay Broadband’s LBON820ACT RF over glass (RFoG) node is a new member to the family of bi-directional RFoG optical nodes using WDM transmission. It is the ideal platform to deliver upstream and downstream DOCSIS® voice, video, and high-speed data services.
The LBON820ACT optical network unit (ONU) is an outdoor-hardened, 8-port optical node (strand, pedestal, or wall-mounted) designed for fiber to the tap (FTTT). Operators can use this device in place of a coax cable TV multitap to extend fiber to each tap location in brownfield applications.
It is capable of in-field, upgradeable bandsplits (42/54 MHz, 85/102 MHz, and 204/258 MHz). Downstream wavelength is 1550 nm and OBI-free upstream is 1610 nm (8 selectable wavelengths separated by 0.25 nm).
Lindsay Broadband’s LBON820ACT ONU also has electronically-adjustable controls for forward attenuator, forward equalizer, and reverse attenuator. It is powered via hybrid fiber coax (HFC) power (40-90 VAC), or 100-240 VAC mains power.
