The MUL-OTC-CH-V is an Optical Transport Chassis with universal CATV applications, high density, and powerful functionality and flexibility. The galvanized steel 4RU module shelf, CMM Display and Control Module, and Plug-in Power Modules are the basis of this product. The standard 19 inch shelf has 16 universal slots and fan cooling. The plug-in CMM Status Display and Control Module has a LCD status display and front panel pushbutton operation. Installing the Plug-in Application Modules into the shelf and putting the shelf into the cabinet creates an entire HFC headend in very little space.
Plug-in Application Modules
Depending on optical fiber network design requirements, users can select the following optional Application Modules:
- MUL-OTC-1310TX-V-X – 1310nm Forward Path Optical Transmitter Module
- MUL-OTC-1550TX-V-X – 1550nm Forward Path Optical Transmitter Module
- MUL-OTC-RPR4-V – Four-channel Return Path Optical Receiver Module
- MUL-OTC-EDFA-V-X – EDFA Optical Amplifier Module
Plug-in Power Modules
The Plug-in Power Modules convert the AC power (DC optional), input power to supply the Application Modules in the OTC shelf. These modules use the newest switching power supply techniques, coupled with a high performance cooling design, to ensure high reliability. Each OTC system includes two redundant Plug-in Power Modules.
