Harmonic's (www.harmonicinc.com) SUPRALink Universal Transmitter is designed as a cost-effective and versatile 16-wavelength 1,550 nm DWDM solution to improve efficiency and reduce costs for forward HFC transmission applications. The full-band solution can cover the entire RF spectrum and is intended to avoid the need to string new fiber.It is comparable in cost to 1,310 nm systems and uses direct-modulated DWDM technology, while its 1,550 nm-based design extends fiber reach out to 70 km. The solution is used with Harmonic's existing HFC platform and is compatible with existing deployed nodes.
