There has always been a clear divide between upstream and downstream data splits, making it possible to upgrade signals in the existing network using by-pass filters and diplex filters in the active components. But this separation has become a limiting factor when upgrading the network; each upgrade requires new filters and additional labour. Technetix has now developed a bi-directional amplifier, without the need for diplex filters. This article will explain how to create more bandwidth and flexibility within the same infrastructure and how this technology will make 1.8GHz ESD installations feasible without amplifier respacing.
Demand for bandwidth over the cable network is higher than ever, as domestic and commercial usage increases daily, operators are reporting increases of over 20% in downstream traffic and increases of at least 50% in the upstream in the last few months.
Technetix recognized the need for flexibility and, as a result, developed the Direction Neutral Amplifier (DNA), an innovative solution for CATV networks with patented flexible split technology. Lab tests have shown that, in combination with a Distributed Gain Architecture (DGA), the DNA will improve network performance and flexibility, while power consumption decreases by 30%.
May 11th 2020, The COVID-19 pandemic has altered many aspects of the cable and broadband landscape, forcing some operators to quickly augment their residential networks to stand up to spikes in traffic as consumers stayed at home.
Technetix has been shoring up inventory as demand for quick access to these components and supplies ramped up. In fact, during the pandemic Technetix has seen these needs extend well above those caused by other smaller-scale events or disruptions, such as hurricanes, that required the company to accelerate access to cabling, connectors and other types of gear required for self-install kits, according to Sandy Howe, EVP and president, Americas, at Technetix.
MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE: MXL), a leading provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for the connected home, wired and wireless infrastructure, and industrial and multimarket applications, today announced that Technetix Group’s Virtual Segmentation solution is in production driven by its MxL85110 broadband modem enabling gigabit throughput over coaxial cable infrastructure.
The COVID-19 crisis is a challenging time for everyone. We hope you and your family are keeping safe and well through this difficult time.
COVID-19 has been an evolving situation for us. Firstly, in recent weeks there were issues with our manufacturing and supply chains affecting some product manufactured in South East Asia, but it only affected a few specific lines. Technetix, being risk averse, has had all headend, network equipment, line passives and multi-taps largely manufactured in Taiwan.
