【Recommend】Equipment required in a CATV FTTH network

  In some existing CATV operator network or some telecom upgrading projects (eg. in old buildings), to avoid destroying the building structure and make full use of the current coaxial cable network, cable operators usually adopt a FTTH PON+CATV network solution.

CATV FTTH Triple Play solution scenarios

What is called “FTTH PON+CATV” network?

  One hand, Cable TV signal from optical transmitter. Other hand, data and VoIP signal from FTTH GEPON/GPON OLT uplink side. The two ways signals are combined in EDFA (Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier), divided by PLC splitters, transmitted on single fiber and reach to the end user family. In some case the combination signals will reach to the CATV and Ethernet network system: EoC master and EoC slave (Optional). Then EoC slave terminal demodulate the Ethernet service and CATV service.

  • CATV and Ethernet over cable service application
  • HFC CATV and Ethernet service Scenario
  • Data+VoIP+CATV triple play scenario

  • Backplane bus capacity 800G
  • Support 16 PON Ports
  • Common platform for EPON/GPON/10G PON/P2P
  • Common software and interface card sharing with Fiberhome equipment etc.


Optical Transmitter

  FOT FCOT-2600S is CATV & Satellite IF FTTH Optical Transmitter. RF Transmitter transmit 47~862MHz analogue CATV signal and 950~2600MHz SAT-IF signal into optical signal, thus to realize full transparent, high quality and long distance transmission. It can be compatible with any FTTx PON tech for integration of CATV. DVB-S and Internet multi-networks.

  • High quality: original system optimization control technology and RF pre-distortion technology ensure that the system can acquire the maximum CTB, CSO in the case of excellent CNR performance.
  • Flexibility: it can transmit 1~2 ways of SAT-IF signal separately or adding 1 ways CATV signal
  • Reliability: 19 “1U standard rack, built-in high-performance dual switching power supply, etc.


  An Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) is a device that amplifies an optical fiber signal (from CATV).  An WDM EDFA is used to integrated 1550nm CATV (optical signal) and 1490nm /1310nm data stream from the PON into single fiber transmission. 




  1. Multi-mode high power pump laser, output power optimized by software, excellent system CNR.
  2. Built-in high-performance switching power supply, works at 85~265VAC. DC48V power supply optional (reservations required); Chassis cooling automatic temperature control Mechanical cooler (Dual fans) on back panel.
  3. Microprocessor monitors the working state of the laser, and the panel LCD window displays the operating parameters.
  4. Network management monitoring. 

PLC splitter

  PLC splitter is a kind of power splitter based on the integrated quartz base plate with small size, wide operating wavelength range, high reliability, and good uniformity so on, especially suitable for passive optical network (EPON, BPON, GPON, etc.) to connect the central office and terminal equipment for achieving the branching of the optical signal. 

FTTH CATV optical receiver

  FOT FCOR-2600WD is a Broadband CATV & SAT-IF Optical Receiver integrated 1310/1490/1550nm CWDM, CATV working within 47~862MHz, SAT-IF working with 950~2600MHz bandwidth, output level Vo=85dBμV (Pin=0dBm), suitable for FTTH optical fiber access network, which is a low power consumption, high performance, and excellent cost performance RFTV broadcast network ONU (Optical network unit).
