The model CH3000 is ARRIS’s advanced mid‐plane, 3RU chassis design, which offers the network operator a platform featuring maximum flexibility, high packaging density and simplicity of operation. The CH3000 is ideal for all types of optical networks, single wavelength, CWDM or DWDM, and for both Analog and Digital transmission techniques.
The ARRIS AT3300G‐A‐2 series 1 GHz 1310 nm Transmitters provide increased bandwidth capacity for the expanding service demands of HDTV, VoIP, VOD and high‐speed DOCSIS. These transmitters are ideal for broadcast and narrowcast applications for optical transport with link losses ranging from 3 to 14 dB.
ARRIS AT3545G series high performance Full Spectrum Transmitters are a key element of ARRIS’s HFC and FD architectures in support of the evolution to all QAM transmission and are designed for Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) applications for point‐to‐point forward path transmission of full spectrum broadcast and narrowcast services.
The AT3572H C-band externally modulated analog transmitters support 1.218 GHz bandwidth operation for DOCSIS 3.1 applications. These models provide High Performance for Extended Reach for enhanced HFC, RFoG, PON, and FTTH applications.
The ARRIS HT3300H Series Double-Density 1310 nm Transmitter System provides high performance and a high rack density forward path transmission solution for Cable TV service providers.
The ARRIS HT3540H Series Double-Density Full Spectrum Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) Transmitter System provides high performance and a high rack density forward path transmission solution for Cable TV service providers.
The ARRIS HT3580H Series Quad‐Density Full Spectrum Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) Transmitter System provides high performance and a high rack density forward path transmission solution for Cable TV service providers.
The DR3450N Quad Digital Return Receiver utilizes ARRIS’s state‐of‐the‐art digital reverse technology to receive 5–50 MHz, 5–65 MHz, or 5–100 MHz RF signals. 5–100 MHz modes can also be used to carry common mid‐band splits such as 5–85 MHz RF return. Its’ capabilities allow deployment of compact and robust high‐speed digital broadband systems.
The AR3044L provides four standard gain analog return path receivers in a single chassis module in support of HFC architectures. The high output power of the AR3044L allows passive RF splitting and increases system design flexibility. The compact single‐width module design of the AR3044L allows the operator to install up to 56 return path receivers in one 3RU chassis. This approach minimizes rack space requirements in the headend and hubs, and enhances deployment of HFC networks.
ARRIS’ BP3400C‐00 Optical Receiver Back Plate converts optical signals to electrical signals and passes them through high‐speed connectors to up to four DR3450N Quad Digital Receiver modules to which it is mated in the CH3000 Chassis. Model RR40xx‐00‐PI series dual‐channel optical receiver SFPs are used to receive the optical signals from nodes in the network. Eight such SFPs are used (as shown in the photo) when the back plate is mated to four DR3450N modules using 1‐fer mode. Each DR3450N module provides four separate receivers in each chassis slot (i.e. each receiver having a discrete optical input and RF output).
The CX3002 Communications Module supports the remote configuration and monitoring of modules in the CH3000 Chassis, and monitors the chassis mid‐plane alarm line. Mounted on top of any power supply module, it does not require a dedicated slot in the chassis. The CX3002 supports Web‐based management of the CH3000 Chassis.
The ARRIS FA3500 series is a family of high‐output, extremely compact 1550 nm optical amplifiers. Output powers ranging from 14 to 21 dBm are available in a single‐width module designed for use in the CH3000 3RU chassis. Dual amplifier versions, which provide two optically independent amplifiers in a single‐width module, are also available. These high performance amplifiers allow operators to use 1550 nm analog and DWDM transmitters to deliver high‐quality broadcast and digital narrowcast content over significant transmission distances.
The ARRIS FA3530M and FA3533M are high performance, multiport 1550 nm optical amplifiers. The high power output of these amplifiers is ideally suited for video distribution in RFoG and RFPON network architectures. In RFoG applications, the 8‐port FA3530M EDFA at the headend amplifies and distributes the 1550 nm broadcast video signal to over 250 residential customers, over 8 typical RFoG network segments, each with 32 connected endpoint devices. Comparably, the 16‐port FA3533M amplifies and distributes the 1550 nm broadcast signal to over 500 customers over 16 typical RFoG network segments, each with 32 connected endpoint devices.
The PS3006 is a high performance, hot‐swappable, 300 watt power supply and controller designed for the CH3000 chassis. The PS3006 accepts an AC input voltage in the continuous range from 100 to 240 volts at 50 to 60 Hz and provides 12 volts DC to the mid‐plane bus of the CH3000 for distribution to chassis modules. The PS3006 manages the communication on the mid‐plane bus, providing user access to the alarm, control and monitoring features of the active modules in the chassis. For easy set‐up of the CH3000, the PS3006 continuously polls and performs auto‐discovery of all active modules in the chassis.
The model PS3248 is a high performance, 300 Watt power supply and controller for the model CH3000 chassis. The PS3248 accepts DC input voltages from –36 to –60 volts, and outputs 12 volts DC to the power bus of the CH3000 mid‐plane. Features include hot swap capability, redundant operation, overvoltage, short circuit protection, and over temperature protection.
