ARRIS / AURORA
Quad high gain analog return receiver
The AR3044 provides four high gain analog return path receivers in a single chassis module and supports both high gain HFC and RFoG architectures when used with RFoG return filters (NP31F08S06A0S). The high output power of the AR3044 allows passive RFsplitting and increases system design flexibility.
The compact single-width module design of the AR3044 allows the operator to install up to 56 return path receivers in one 3RU chassis. This approach minimizes rack space requirements in the headend and hubs, and enhances deployment of traditional HFC, passive HFC, and RFoG networks.
