Cable operators are moving fast to enhance the customer entertainment experience with a new wave of services and more channels that require maximizing HFC bandwidth utilization. They are looking towards the next-generation of Edge QAMs to expedite deployment of these services, provide cost-efficiencies and plant management simplification.
Ericsson is breaking new ground delivering the next-generation Edge QAM that is based on open standards and incorporates Cablelabs DOCSIS 3.0 (including DRFI and M-CMTS) specifications.
The EQ8096 is a step-change in QAM devices and is designed to exceed the functionality, density and cost points required for all uses of a cable edge modulator. It has the unique ability to operate in Broadcast, VOD, Switched Digital Video (SDV) and High Speed Data (HSD) applications simultaneously within the same chassis.
