WISI will launch a new product line for Digital Fibre Coax (DFC) networks at ANGA COM this year and present a portfolio of intelligent solutions for network operators.
The first product in its DFC line will be a distributed Cable Modem Termination (CMTS) System, the WISI GV10. This CCAP solution is a cable edge device for delivering video, data and voice services over coax.
WISI GV10 is designed to be compact and energy efficient and moves the DOCSIS signal and protocol processing out of the headend via fibre to the location of the coax feed-in.
It is particularly suited for FTTB (GPON, P2P) applications in hospitality areas as well as for alternative carriers and cable networks. The CMTS provides 16 64/256 QAM modulated EuroDOCSIS downstream channels. In the upstream GV10 provides four upstream channels with 1.6/3.2/6.4 MHz per channel, according to WISI.
Other ANGA highlights for the firm include the two extended headend systems Tangram und Chameleon.
Tangram is designed for IPTV and analogue or digital TV solutions. At ANGA COM WISI will presents new modules and functionalities for gateway and edge applications. The Edge ISDB-T module GT 26 provides up to two ISDB-T channels., while the linear transcoder module GT 37 can transcode up to 4 HD respectively 4 SD channels. It supports the formats 1080i, 720p, 576i and 480i, and the codecs MPEG-2 (H.262) and MPEG-4 (H.264).
Chameleon is a headend system suitable for cable and IP network operators, designed for all current and future applications and “ideally suited for the transition from the analogue to the digital world as well as the connection between HFC and IP distribution platforms,” said WISI.
At ANGA COM WISI will present some extensions to Chameleon’s software-based system. New features include scrambling and monitoring alarms and are designed to provide higher security for network operators. WISI has also optimised the control options of the system.
Elsewhere, WISI has extended its modular access platform Optopus towards DOCSIS 3.1 and 1.2 GHz and will present a number of extensions to the platform at ANGA. The new in-home fiber network termination LR10 has an integrated optical RF receiver, while the LX15 S 3000 is a new optical adjustable full-band transmitter for long signal transmissions of up to 60 kilometers.
WISI will exhibit at ANGA COM in hall 10.2, stand E9.
