Teleste reveals it has signed a frame agreement with a customer it described as “a major USA cable broadband operator” to supply 1.8-GHz amplifiers and Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) nodes. With initial orders submitted, Teleste says it expects to begin delivering the technology in the middle of next year.
The company didn’t reveal which products it will deliver, but the 1.8-GHz amplifiers likely come from Teleste’s ICON line. Those elements include the ICON100 booster amplifier, ICON3100 line extender, and ICON4300 system amplifier. For DAA, Teleste offers a range of Remote PHY nodes that includes the ICON9000 RPD, which Teleste describes as “an intelligent 1x2x4 Remote PHY node for North American cable broadband markets.”
The technology will aid the operator in its drive to support up to 10 Gbps on its HFC infrastructure.
