Extended Spectrum DOCSIS (ESD) is one of the great opportunities for operators to get the most out of their existing hybrid fibre and coaxial (HFC) networks. However, the high frequencies up to 1.8 GHz used in these networks are tough on the existing coax cable infrastructure and insist on using the best network components. This is where ICON100 1.8 GHz Booster Amplifier comes into play.
- Supports up to 1.8 GHz downstream and 684 MHz upstream
- Fixed down- and upstream slope equalization
- Adequate dynamic range
- Test point for monitoring signal presence
- Supports high feed through current
- No adjustments needed
- Efficient ESD and Surge protection
ICON100 1.8 GHz booster amplifier
The ICON100 is a simple and small booster amplifier ideally used on distribution lines when the networks are upgraded to a higher frequency band and compensation for increased cable loss is needed.
Easy to install
As the ICON100 requires no level adjustments, it offers an easy to install solution that can also act as a line equalizer.
Backward compatible, yet future-proof
Maintaining backward compatibility has been one of the basic design principles in the new ICON100 booster amplifier. Although it supports 1.8 GHz and future DOCSIS 4.0 rollouts, it can also be used in lower frequency networks.
The amplifier is remotely powered and supports high feed through current.
