Electroline Equipment Inc. has released the EDX optical Mini Node, which, the company says, will help cable operators bring fiber to large- and mid-sized buildings.
The new Mini Node, the first of a line of optical products expected from Electroline, has been approved by a yet-to-be-disclosed “major MSO.”
The gear, which supports 50 dBmV at 1003 MHz output, is targeted toward multiple dwelling units and commercial complexes such as universities, hospitals and business parks, the company said.
The new entrant also supports a CWDM return transmitter option designed to combine multiple two-way nodes on a single fiber.
“With large-node performance and features now available in a small economical package, the costs associated with procurement, installation, and powering of standard fiber-deep nodes has been greatly reduced,” said Electroline Director of Business Development John Decker, in a release.
