Olson Technology – OTPN-800C-H/L – Customer Premise HFC/PON Optical Node/Receiver with Optional Return Transmitter

  • Mid-Level member of the OT PremiseNode family: Cost-Effective, Full-Featured, Field-Upgradable
  • Choice of two (2) RF Output Levels (“H” at +38dBmV -or- “L” at +28dBmV) at -1dBm optical input
  • “H” Version: incorporates internal Plug-in Equalizer for Slope control; 6dB at 1,000MHz standard
  • “H” Version: utilizes RF Output Level adjustment via internal user-adjustable variable attenuator.
  • This version provides the full output level of +38dBmV at any optical input level from -8dBm to +2dBm.
  • “L” Version: No Slope or RF Output Level controls (i.e. Slope = 0dB and RF Out varies with Optical Input)
  • Wide Optical Input Window (+2dBm to -8dBm) at 1310/1550nm
  • Full CATV Forward Path Bandwidth to 1,000MHz (Analog and QAM Digital)
  • DFB or CWDM return laser transmitter options for Two-Way DOCSIS operation
  • Calibrated Power Meter (1V/mW) Optical Input power test point
  • Forward and Return external RF test points (-20dB)
  • Status LED's for optimal Optical Input and Output power ranges and unit Power-On indication
  • +12VDC Local Direct or Remote Drop -Coax powering via Optional Power Inserter
  • Low Power Consumption (Rx at 6 Watts; Rx/Tx at 7 Watts)
  • Greater than 6kV surge tolerant RF output and SMT construction for consistency, reliabilityand performance
  • Compact (3″x 7″x 2.1″), Lightweight and Rugged cast aluminum housing for Easy Installation
  • Power supply (+12V/1.25A) and “F” Connector Adapter included.


The Olson Technology, Ind. OTPN-800C-H/L PremiseNode is a compact, cost-effective, full-featured indoor CATV node designed using the very latest optical receiver technology to reliably deliver a full slate of multiplexed video, high speed data and telephony services in an HFC or PON broadband CATV environment. The unit is ideally suited for direct fiber transmission of CATV RF signals in FTTH, FTTX, MDU, industrial, corporate, government, educational, I-Net or traditional HFC applications where a high performance, compact indoor node is required. The unit is constructed with high quality components to enable it to meet or exceed its performance specifications over a wide temperature range in an uncontrolled environment, but it does require protection from the elements. It is configured for desktop, shelf or wall-mounting.
