ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., July 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EMCORE Corporation (EMKR), a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optic and solar power markets, today announced the addition of the J-Type Medallion 6000 to the Company's 1550 nm Cable Television (CATV) fiber optic transmitter product portfolio.
EMCORE's new J-Type Medallion 6000 series of externally modulated transmitters has been developed specifically for Japan and other markets requiring long distance and concurrent fiber optic transport of CATV and Satellite-Intermediate Frequency Signals (SAT-IF). The J-Type Medallion 6000 supports industry-leading operational bandwidths up to 2.8 GHz with adjustable SBS (Stimulated Brillouin Scattering) suppression range from 11 to 17 dBm, plus extended adjustable AGC (Automatic Gain Control), and very high OMI (Optical Modulation Index) for exceptional link performance. In parallel, EMCORE is announcing the next-generation WEB GUI and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) software service offering for the entire Medallion 6000 platform. The new WEB GUI and SNMP interfaces offer many new advanced capabilities to serve the evolving and growing needs of the world's most advanced networks.
The J-Type transmitter's exceptional performance is enabled by EMCORE's proprietary high power, narrow-linewidth CW (Continuous Wave) laser technology. When deployed with one or more EMCORE optical amplifiers, transmissions of 100 km and beyond have been demonstrated. The feature-rich WEB GUI and SNMP enhancements bring a whole suite of advanced operator monitoring and configuration options to the platform, allowing for secure, simplified and future-ready functionality for the next generation of intelligent networks.
"Building upon the strength of our popular Medallion 6000 series, our new J-Type model is the ideal solution for the transmission of CATV and SAT-IF signals over 100 km and beyond," said Grant Olecko, Product Marketing Director at EMCORE Broadband. "The 6000 family of transmitters is also ideal for extending traditional CATV systems including headend consolidation, broadcast transport, and RF overlay for FTTH (Fiber-To-The-Home) PON (Passive Optical Network), and RFoG (Radio Frequency over Glass) projects in countries around the world. This capability allows us to capitalize on a significant and growing market opportunity."
The Medallion 6000 series of CATV transmitters deliver high-quality video with full QAM (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) loading to 1 GHz for shorter reach and long-haul applications. Monitoring and configuration is supported via a convenient front panel display, an RS-232 port, and an Ethernet port with SNMP, Telnet, and Web GUI. The platform is mechanically designed for flexibility and space efficiency including universal rack-mount features, modular front panel design for private label convenience, and optional front and rear port placement. Dual redundant field-replaceable fans and power supplies are standard.
Network providers are demanding high quality and economical delivery of video to their customers, while extending capacity and improving network management intelligence. EMCORE is well positioned to take advantage of this trend with our advanced portfolio of broadband solutions. The enhanced features and cost-effective designs leveraged from EMCORE's long-established experience in 1550 nm transmitter technology meet the demanding needs of today's CATV networks.
The J-Type Medallion 6000 platform is available for evaluation today. For more information, or private label opportunities, please email email@example.com, or contact your EMCORE representative.
