Arris said that its 1 GHz CHP CORWave ‘closely spaced’ CWDM downstream optics are now available.
CORWave is an extension of the broadly-deployed, field-proven CHP CWDM optics that deliver more capacity over longer-link distances on existing fiber, thus supporting the delivery of high-definition (HD) switched digital video (SDV), video-on-demand (VOD) and business services on existing MSO fiber networks.
Arris said the technology was recently certified by one of the Top 3 U.S. cable operators (unidentified); that MSO is scheduled to deploy the product this quarter.
When included in the company’s OptiMax4100 4×4 segmentable nodes, CORWave multiplexes 12 wavelengths (four forward, four return and four bidirectional) on a single fiber with a link length of up to 25 kilometers.
In OptiMax segmentable nodes in a 2×2 configuration, CORWave enables longer-link lengths of up to 30 kilometers, Arris said.
