HICKORY, N.C. -- CommScope, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, will introduce what it believes to be the cable industry’s first all-digital, carrier-grade wideband edge QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) solution—the LxS-16016—during The Cable Show this week.

With the introduction of the CommScope LxS-16016 wideband edge QAM, the company is continuing its efforts to expand its product offerings to multi-system operators (MSO). A dense, scalable QAM solution is vital to supporting more of the advanced and next-generation services over HFC (hybrid fiber coax) networks, and enhances CommScope’s efforts to provide a complete solutions offering—starting at the head-end and finishing at the home.

“Cost effective, scalable QAM is critical to supporting the applications that are growing in importance, such as video on demand, switched digital video, broadcast video, DOCSIS®, and cable IPTV on the same physical redundant radio frequency (RF) port,” said Shane Eleniak, vice president, Advanced Broadband Solutions, CommScope. “MSOs now have the opportunity to seamlessly add bandwidth as needed in the most cost effective manner. The CommScope LxS-16016 wideband edge QAM introduces our customers to an entirely new era for enabling new service offerings.”
