Aurora Gives RFoG a Lift

NEW ORLEANS -- Aurora Networks, Inc., the only optical transport solution provider focused on delivering a cost-effective, optimized platform for next-generation cable services, today introduced new RFoG (RF over Glass) devices that support cable operators as they evolve their all-fiber networks. These solutions are on display at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo® 2010 in New Orleans, in booth No. 1552.

The technology advances round out Aurora Networks’ solutions for both direct-fed and distributed RFoG architectures. The new products, including diplexer/return receivers, a PON filter module, two high-powered optical amplifiers and an MDU CPE device, support RFoG networks at the headend, in the field at virtual hub sites and at the home. The compact devices save space and are simple to install, reducing complexity for an RFoG network while enhancing upstream performance for DOCSIS® 3.0-enabled services.

What Aurora Networks says

"RFoG technology is the network architecture of choice for cable operators that want to bring all-fiber connectivity to homes and businesses. RFoG platforms are ideal for cost-effectively taking fiber to customers in low-density, rural areas, new developments and MDUs. Aurora Networks’ RFoG architecture also can evolve with a cable operator's needs, enabling a migration to full-PON capabilities," said John Dahlquist, vice president of marketing, Aurora Networks. "These new devices from Aurora Networks support the requirements of RFoG networks both today and tomorrow.”
