GS7000 Optical Hub


 
GS7000 Strand Mount Housing
Part Number: GS7000 Optical Hub
Description:

As operators migrate to architectures with deeper fiber reach, there is an increased need for flexible design options and efficient fiber utilization in the optical network. The Model GS7000 Optical Hub addresses those needs by providing multiple options for optical amplification, filtering, splitting, and combining, all in a field-proven Model GS7000 station.
The Model GS7000 Optical Hub employs a modular approach, allowing full configuration flexibility combined with simple component installation and removal. The Model GS7000 active optical modules include a variety of low-noise EDFA optical amplifiers for both broadcast and narrowcast applications, as well as optical switches that enable redundancy.
  Features:

EDFA modules for optical amplification
Optical switch modules for redundancy
Flexible and scalable optical passive modules
Fiber management tray and tracks provide easy fiber routing and access to fiber connections
Status monitor/Local control module for remote monitoring and control (Transmission Network Control System [TNCS] or other compatible element management system required)
Fiber entry ports on both ends of housing lid
AC power entry ports on both ends of the housing base
Primary and redundant power supplies with passive load sharing
Dual/Split AC powering
> Benefits
Eliminates building costs and permitting issues for new "brick and mortar" hub locations.
Reduces the need for new fiber installation.
Fiber management and fiber coupling (mux/demux, etc.) are typically done at the headend or hub, or within strand-mounted splice enclosures. This can now be done with the Model GS7000 Optical Hub.
All passive devices are enclosed within the housing. No need for external splice enclosures.
Optical amplification is typically done at the headend or hub, or with strand-mounted optical amplifiers. This can now be done with the Model GS7000 Optical Hub.
The ability to add redundancy, or enable network switching for survivability is typically done at the headend or hub. This can now be done with the Model GS7000 Optical Hub.
