TV Inc has introduced the first in a line of RFoG Extenders designed
to allow the Cable Operator to extend their FTTH; using RFoG, (RF
over Glass) deployment further away from the headend. In traditional
RFoG deployment fibers are run from a central locations , such as a
headend, limiting the distance that the system can be deployed.
With the RFoG Extender, Fiber can be run from the headend to a
distant location where the RFoG Extender amplifies the incoming
light and then splits it in up to 8 separate paths to feed customer
taps. The unit simultaneously accepts the 1310 return from the
customerís home, processes it and returns it, on the same fiber or
an additional fiber back to the head end and the CMTS.
