The ARRIS Opti Max™ OM3100 1 GHz 2×2 segmentable node enables cable operators to increase forward capacity for HDTV, Video on Demand (VOD), VoIP, Internet, and other service offerings. 2×2 segmentation in both the forward and return path provides the ability to reduce a service group size by 50% for increased capacity and more targeted services when needed, without having to run new trunk fiber or install additional nodes. Thoughtfully designed drop in lid upgrades* enable service group segmentation by converting amplifiers or older nodes to 1 GHz nodes. The OM3100 accepts legacy PADs and Equalizers to minimize stocking requirements. Optional Digital Return transmitters utilizes pluggable SFPs in 1310, 1550, CWDM and DWDM wavelengths to provide easier truck stocking.
