ALHAMBRA, Calif., May 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation (EMKR), a leading provider of advanced Mixed-Signal Optics products that provide the foundation for today’s high-speed communication network infrastructures and leading-edge defense systems, announced today that it will introduce 1.8 GHz bandwidth plans for linear fiber optic HFC (Hybrid Fiber Coaxial) networks at ANGACOM 2019.
1.8 GHz builds on the foundation of EMCORE’s ongoing advancements in 1.2 GHz systems where EMCORE forward path CATV transmitters utilizing L-EMLTM (Linear Externally Modulated Laser) technology can now achieve 46 dB MER (Modulation Error Ratio) with full QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) loading up to 40 km. EMCORE L-EML-based transmitters continue to receive wide acceptance with major cable broadband service providers and are available in a rack mountable 1RU form factor, or a PCBA (Printed Circuit Board Assembly) mini-transmitter subassembly enabling systems designers to quickly integrate the L-EML device technology into a variety of CATV transmitter platforms.
“With 1.8 GHz capability, EMCORE continues its leadership in advancing the network performance cable broadband service providers can deliver to their customers,” said Grant Olecko, Senior Product Director at EMCORE. “Cable service providers can future-proof their systems with up to a 50% increase in network capacity with no change to existing architecture,” added Mr. Olecko.
At ANGACOM, EMCORE will also showcase its MEDALLION series portfolio of end-to-end CATV rackmount transmission systems featuring the 8100 DOCSIS 3.1, L-EML 1550 nm CATV Transmitter along with MEDALLION 7100 and 7110 high-power CATV Fiber Amplifiers and MEDALLION 2100 Optical A/B Switch. In addition, EMCORE will display the new Model 3644 Mini-Tx 1.2 GHz, 1550 nm L-EML CATV Transmitter Subassembly designed for a range of CATV applications to 40 km and beyond.
We invite you to visit us June 4-6 at the Cologne Congress Center, Cologne, Germany in Hall 8 at the EMCORE and EQ Photonics Booth #Q60 where we will be meeting with customers and industry analysts. If you are interested in scheduling a meeting, please contact EMCORE at email@example.com.
