Narrowcast insertion

The high QAM modulation schemes in CCAP equipment require high isolation for signal combining. The CCAP standard dictates 70 dB isolation between ports on a CCAP device.

  • DOCSIS 3.1 CCAP compliant combining solution
  • High CSO/CTB specification
  • Electronic slope and level control on every port (0.5 dB steps)
  • No service disruption during settings and changes
  • Remote control and monitoring via SNMP and web server

Existing passive headend combining systems built with splitters and directional couplers are creating leakage paths and reducing isolation in the combining systems. This signal leakage reduces the CNR and the MER in the services offered.

The Technetix NCI solution offers the highest possible isolation in headend combining and offers at least 3 dB better CNR in the access network after the optical link, giving better headroom for the deployment of higher modulation schemes like 4K QAM. Featuring remote control, electronic switching, high density rack unit all confirm the flexibility of the NCI system.

The smart solution for headend RF signal management

Active combining is the best solution to provide a future-proof system which can handle DOCSIS 3.0, DOCSIS 3.1 and CCAP. The compact, CCAP compliant Narrowcast Inserter (NCI) solution from Technetix is the smart choice to overcome these challenges.

NCI provides maximum flexibility for minimum rack space, along with low power consumption and high isolation.
