AAOI has introduced which product family?

With the launch of its Quantum Bandwidth brand, Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI) announced a new family of HFC products. Among the newly announced Quantum Bandwidth products are:

  • With the Quantum Bandwidth Cable Plant Signal Generator (CPSG), data can be transmitted in OFDM and 256-QAM from 54 MHz to 1794 MHz. CPSGs generate signals needed to test a cable TV network under full channel loading for testing Extended Spectrum DOCSIS HFC equipment.
  • In an HFC headend or hub site, the Quantum Bandwidth Broadband Digital Access (BDA) shelf module digitizes both broadcast and narrowcast signals, then transmits these signals using pluggable optical modules to an HFC node equipped with a BDA, generating near-perfect analog signals from those signals. BDA shelves recover the analog upstream traffic while simultaneously receiving digitized return-path traffic from up to four 204 MHz service groups.
  • Quantum Bandwidth Broadband Digital Access (BDA) node-based modules can replace existing or new HFC nodes in an existing HFC network, enabling DAA-like digital transport with MERs of +45 dB. Migration to high-order QAM or OFDM transport is easier with the BDA architecture, which eliminates the complexities of managing Remote-PHY or remote MAC/PHY DAA networks.
  • With its 1.8 GHz bandwidth extension, the Quantum Bandwidth Extended Spectrum Line Extender Amplifier supports DOCSIS 4.0 and data rates up to 10 Gbps. A frequency-agile AGC for more accurate level and slope control, and pilot fault detection are among the features. Advanced electronic control and monitoring ensure maximum power efficiency, power factor correction, and a fully automated “hands-free” setup. The hardline amplifiers are designed to meet SCTE 279 requirements for DOCSIS 4.0.

AOI will display all of the products above, along with optical modules at Booth # 5082 at the upcoming SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, which will take place Sept. 20-22, 2022, at the Philadelphia Convention Center.

Another strategic move by AAOI is

It was announced yesterday that Applied Optoelectronics (AAOI) had entered into an agreement with Yuhan Optoelectronic Technology Co. The agreement involves the sale of certain assets and the sale of its manufacturing facilities in China for $150 million, less a holdback. Under customary closing conditions, the transaction should close by 2023. Regulatory approvals and closing conditions must be met.
