Optional optical path resiliency and hardware redundancy
Local Craft and remote SNMP monitoring
High RF output
ARRIS CHP Max5000 1 GHz Redundant Forward Receivers, designed to accept an optical forward path signal from a CHP Forward Path Transmitter, are an integral part of the CHP Max5000 platform, which converges headend, hub, and digital transport onto one 2RU scalable system allowing service providers to accelerate deployment of advanced services such as video on demand, high speed data, and telephony. Extending bandwidth from 870 MHz to 1 GHz will enable broadband service providers to increase the overall forward capacity by 16% and the digital spectrum by 40%.
The CHP Max5000 1 GHz Redundant Forward Receiver can operate as either a standalone receiver or can be configured as a redundant receiver with the addition of a second module and a Redundant Communications Link Cable (RCL2), providing optical path resiliency and hardware redundancy to maintain uninterrupted service availability in the event of optical path or hardware failure Automatic switchover time for optical path or hardware failure is less than or equal to 50ms. The CHP Max5000 platformoffers operators the flexibility to set the optical input and RF output thresholds for switching to the redundant module. Redundant modules may be located in the same CHP chassis or in a different rack located within the maximum RCL2 length of 6 meters (20 feet). A major alarm is generated if either the optical input power or RF output power exceeds a user-definedmajor high limit or drops below a user-definedmajor low limit.
The CHP Max5000 1 GHz Redundant Forward Receiver is designed for both 1310 nm and 1550 nm network architectures with an input power range from –10 to 4 dBm. It provides a high RF output up to 1002 MHz with a noise contribution of less than 8 pA/Hz0.5 eliminating the need for additional RF amplification when combining many circutis.
The front panel has module and channel status LEDs, and up and down gain adjustment buttons, which can be locked out by the local Craft Management Graphical User Interface for security purposes.
