Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) is showcasing its 2x2 remote PHY device (RPD) solution at the SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo in Denver.

The company will showcase a live demonstration of its latest remote PHY solution that is designed to comply with CableLabs' OpenRPD standard. Simulating an HFC network, AOI's RPD will be connecting to a cable modem termination system (CMTS) via AOI's own 10G SFP+ transceiver to display both downstream and upstream performance to the cable modem.

"AOI's innovative FPGA-based RPD design, working in collaboration with the Intel Programmable Solutions Group, has enabled AOI to become a leader in the remote PHY space," said Michael Jones, Applied Optoelectronics' senior R&D director. "Thanks to a flexible RPD platform architecture, AOI has successfully evolved its design to meet multiple HFC market requirements, including early demonstrations of Full Duplex DOCSIS."

"AOI has been an early adopter of our remote PHY system-on-chip (SoC) and has supported us with its proven engineering expertise as we target the rapidly transforming cable broadband market with a programmable RPD solution," said Mike Fitton, director for the cable access business, Intel Programmable Solutions Group.
