Remote PHY Shelf (RPS)


The Harmonic CableOS® Wave-1 Remote PHY Shelf (RPS) is a 1-RU indoor platform for networks tasked with delivering data, voice and video services over coax.
Compact and cost-effective, the Wave-1 RPS houses the CableOS Pebble-1WV Remote PHY device (RPD), which supports distributed access architectures defined by CableLabs MHAv2 specification. Three Pebble-1WV RPDs can be installed in a single Wave-1 chassis.
Wave-1 and Pebble-1WV are both part of the Harmonic CableOS software-based CCAP system, which also includes CableOS Core CMTS software, the NSG™ Pro cable access platform and Ripple-1 Remote PHY Node. Fundamentally changing the business dynamics of cable delivery, CableOS introduces cable operators to unprecedented scalability, agility and cost savings. The end-to-end solution supports centralized and distributed cable access architectures that enable the fast deployment of IP-based and legacy data, video, and voice services — and sustainable capacity growth. All CableOS components work together to resolve space and power constraints in the headend and hub, eliminate dependence on hardware upgrade cycles, and provide multi-dimensional scaling.
Multiple configurations of the Wave-1 using one, two or three Pebble-1WV RPDs are available, each with one downstream and one or two upstream ports. The Pebble-1WV RPD includes added features such as per-port RF output power monitoring and closed-loop output power control, allowing for temperature-insensitive gain and tilt stability.
