Distribution Amplifiers (1.2 GHz) are DOCSIS 3.1 compliant.

May 16, 2014

AC1500 distribution and A2500 distribution trunk amplifiers ensure that downstream frequency band reaches up to 1.2 GHz and upstream is upgradable to 200 MHz. Both can be equipped with Remote Ingress Switching (RIS) system that allows ingress detection and countermeasures at headend. For management feature diversity, amplifiers can also be equipped with intelligent transponders with measuring capabilities as well as programmable signal and ingress monitoring. Read More
