SAN ANTONIO -- Xtend Networks™, a Vyyo® company (NASDAQ: VYYO) that provides next generation Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) network solutions for the cable TV industry, today announced the availability of a new version of its XHUB node product for the delivery of 3GHz of bandwidth over 750MHz plant.

The XHUB 3006, a critical component of Xtend’s Block Division Multiplexing technology, has been created to simplify installation and maintenance while reducing costs and improving performance when multiple downstream coax connections are fed from a single optical node.

Xtend is demonstrating the XHUB 3006 in its booth (#827) at the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) Cable-Tec Expo at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center June 15-17.

Xtend’s XHUB products perform its unique block frequency multiplexing and upconversion for the “Xtended” (1250-1950 MHz) downstream, and demultiplex and downconvert the four upstream blocks (2250-2750 MHz). Previous XHUB versions required the additional installation of three passive devices to accommodate node splits or other multiple coax configurations; the XUB 3006 is a dual amplifier Block Division Multiplexer with additional ports for a second coax connection.

“The XHUB 3006 is yet another step in making the Xtend solution the simplest, most cost-effective route to the capacity cable needs to provide high bandwidth services today,” said Bill Keating, CEO of Xtend Networks. “The product is designed to minimize network elements and connections, further simplifying the deployment of the 3GHz solution in split node configurations.”
