SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Aurora Networks, Inc., the only optical transport solution provider focused on delivering a cost-effective, optimized platform for next-generation cable services, today announced the AT3520G, a high-performance analog Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) narrowcast transmitter designed to provide the narrowcast channels required by operators to support expanding and in-demand high-speed data (HSD), Video on Demand (VoD) and telephony services. By increasing the number of narrowcast channels carried on one transmitter, the AT3520G expands narrowband services without the need for additional transmitters in headend and hubs where space is constrained.

The AT3520G seamlessly integrates additional narrowcast channels into existing HFC and Fiber Deep architectures enabling MSOs to expand narrowcast channel capacity. MSOs simply replace existing AT3510G narrowcast transmitters to instantly access 50 percent more narrowcast channel bandwidth.

“The AT3520G gives MSOs the ability to immediately widen their service offerings, like VoD and high-speed data, without incurring major infrastructure costs,” said John Dahlquist, vice president of marketing at Aurora Networks. “Aurora Networks is committed to helping the cable industry drive a deeper set of capabilities to the home while maintaining an approach with a clear cost advantage over the competition.”
