The I-HUB field-hardened platform extends the Chromadigm full band transport for hub elimination, HFC fibre deep, RFoG and 1550nm PON overlay architectures.
I-HUB platform provides a new generation of forward and return path DWDM solutions. As cable access architectures evolve towards multi-wavelength, fibre deep networks, they require new solutions that utilise the existing fibre networks more efficiently, while reducing the operational complexity of older architectures in favour of a full spectrum solution.
The I-HUB platform application flexibility is achieved through its wide range of modules including forward and return optical amplifiers, return network stackers, RFoG repeaters, and optical switching.
ATX’s die cast aluminum housing providing a field hardened platform enabling operators to deploy many optical solutions that eliminate the need for costly, bricks and mortar hub sites and streetside pedestals.
The I-HUB platform has two load sharing power supplies with power entry ports on either end of the housing, two large fibre trays, controller module, and has 10 application module slots; four in the base and six in the lid.
The I-HUB platform is an ideal tool to drive fibre deeper into the network while reclaiming existing fibres for additional revenue generating services such as, business services or mobile cell site backhaul.
ATX’s I-HUB optical switch supports redundant fibre routing applications.
