Olson's PremiseNode OTPN-400C Optical Node is a low-cost, compact, indoor CATV receive-only node in a new cast housing. It is designed with the latest optical receiver technology to reliably deliver a full slate of multiplexed video, data, and telephony services in an HFC (hybrid fiber/coax) or PON (passive optical network) broadband CATV environment.
The OTPN-400C is ideal for direct fiber transmission of CATV RF signals in FTTH, FTTx, MDU, corporate, government, educational, and other applications where a high performance, compact indoor node is required. the unit is constructed with high quality components to enable it to meet its performance specifications over wide temperature range in an uncontrolled environment, but it does require protection from the elements. It is designed for desktop, shelf or wall-mounting.
The OTPN-400C offers good optical sensitivity, high RF output level, optical indoor power DC test point and optical level LED indicator. The unit includes a provision for flexible powering of the node, either locally through the DC Power IN “+12VDC” port, or remotely up the coax drop through the “RF OUT/+12VDC” port via an optional Power Inserting Coupler (PIC).
The OTPN-400C is the perfect companion to the Olson LaserLite and LaserPlus forward transmitter product families. It is also designed to mate with 1310nm, 1550nm, CWDM and DWDM optical transmitters from most leading manufacturers.
