Information on mounting offset parabolic antennas

In order to ensure perfect reception, there must


be a clear line of sight to the satellite, at an angle
of approximately 30°.
The following satellites * will then be available:

1 TÜRKSAT 42° East


2 ASTRA 2 Group 28.2° East
3 ASTRA 3 Group 23.5° East
4 ASTRA 1 Group 19.2° East
5 EUTELSAT W 2 16° East
6 EUTELSAT-HOTBIRD 13° East
7 EUTELSAT W 1 10° East
8 HISPA-Sat 30° West

Ensure that there are no obstacles between the


antenna and the respective satellite (e.g. trees,
* Reception dependent on the location and the footprint of the respective satellite
roof or building sections, other antennas).
These can hamper reception to such a degree
that there is no reception at all during bad
weather conditions or even make reception
impossible in general.

In Detail

The optical broadband platform KOBRA is designed


with a sophisticated operation and management concept.

The central element is the net element controller “NCM 10”.


This module provides the interface to the rear RS 485 bus Gerät
to which all platform modules are connected. In addition, 16
it establishes the connection to external management
systems, e.g. via Web browser, or monitoring systems,
such as HMS monitoring systems.

Ultimately, it enables local setting of all parameters through


the control panel with display and input keys. Decentralized
data storage in each individual module allows independent
operation (without the controller module) after start-up.

Slim modules, some with dual functions (e.g. return path


receiver), ensure high functional density. Minimal space
requirement increases cost-effectiveness and makes later
upgrading easier. Despite their high output power, the opti-
cal amplifiers only require two or three slots.

All test sockets are located on the front panel.


This guarantees easy access for tests or measurements.

The optical and RF interfaces are located on the rear


panel of the platform, simplifying cabling in 19” racks.

Redundant power supply units, each equipped with


double fan units, ensure high reliability. If service is
required, the power supply units can even be exchanged
under operational conditions (hot-pluggable).

Ample cooling ribs guarantee long endurance of all


active components. An additional advantage is the
dust-proof design of all components.

The cooling air only flows along the cooling ribs and not
through the modules themselves. Disturbances due to
dust and dirt are therefore practically ruled out.

RFoG return path receiver

ORM 43E-RFoG 24710047

The ORM 43E-RFoG is designed for use in RFoG


networks, in which typically 32, 64 or 128 optical
micro-nodes are connected to a return path receiver
using optical combiners.

This is possible because with the DOCSIS protocol it is


ensured that in each case only one return path receiver
sends a data package when a DOCSIS data package from
the cable modem exists at the input of the micro-node.

The passive optical coupling enables the saving of return


path receivers. The very cost-effective RFoG micro-nodes
ORA 11x-RFoG and ORA 12x-RFoG enable the designing
of very economic network concepts.

 Opto-electrical conversion of optically transmitted


DOCSIS return path signals

 Four separate receivers, with individual shut-down

 Four separate outputs or one common output

 Redundant operation possible

 Optical input power monitoring on all inputs

Optical fibre switch

OFS 112-E 24810223

The optical fibre switch OFS 112-E generally has the same
function as an electrical change-over switch. Switch-over of
the optical fibre occurs autonomically due to the monitoring
function of the input ports. If the optical input power sinks
below the threshold, the switch changes over to the
redundant port.

The field of applications of the optical fibre switch are


redundancy protections in HFC fibre networks.

 Redundancy switch-over from two input signals

 RS 485 management interface allows


integration into various NMS systems

 Independent input level monitoring of


both optical input ports

 Position-sensor and LED signalling


for the active switch position

 Operation modes:
Automatic, remote-controlled or manual

 LED display for the function of the module and Similar to picture

The ORA 9022-1G is a modularly equipped, high-linear


FTTC fibre node in a compact housing featuring integrated
fibre management for use in modern HFC networks.

The ORA 9022-1G is compatible with 862 MHz networks,


via two operation modes (862 MHz or 1 GHz).
In 862 MHz operation mode, the ORA 9022-1G operates
identically to the ORA 9022 862-MHz device.

The modular concept of the ORA 9022-1G allows system-


specific configuration of the fibre node (both with initial
equipping and with retrofitting) and quick replacement of
components if these are faulty.

In simplest operation, the forward path is equipped with an

The optical compact receivers ORA 920/921 provide the


largest possible range of functions in a very compact
housing. Like the amplifiers in the VGF 939/VOS 95x family,
all essential settings are made using slide switches.
On the other hand, they profit from the optical receiver and
transmitter modules for the ORA 9022. As low-cost optical
compact receivers, they are used particularly in networks
with a wide-ranging optical fibre structure or in smaller
optical distribution networks.
ORA 920SC
Due to the modular layout, the slide switch technology and
the well thought-out details, setup and service are quick
and straightforward. Here the ORA 920/921 can provide
functions that are not a matter of course in this device class. The adjustment of the Optical Modulation Index (OMI) for

Notes:

At least one ORD 120 or ORD 21 plug-in module is


required for operation.
If the ORD 120 is used, the OFC 90/SC optical patch
cable is required. For the configuration with only one
output, no insert card is required. Cable fittings for the
outputs are not included in the delivery scope.

General

Because RFoG extends the range of glass-fibre networks Investments already made in DOCSIS technology
to buildings (FTTB) and even into living rooms (FTTH), this (CMTS, cable modems) can continue to be operated
technology can be seen as being FTTX technology based without modification. In RFoG clusters, only the return

In principle, RFoG can be seen as a PON replacement for The coaxial part of an HFC network can be entirely

For cable network operators, RFoG offers an attractive RFoG standardisation is driven forward by the SCTE

ORA 218D-RFoG 24710068
ORA 219D-RFoG 24710069

The ORA 21xD-RFoG micro-nodes are designed for use


in FTTB and FTTH networks.

The full CATV/EuroDOCSIS frequency spectrum is avai-


lable on the downstream output. EuroDOCSIS signals
are transmitted in the upstream.

What’s new about this concept is that the return path ORA
ORA 21xD-RFoG
laser is only activated when transmission is actually
from a cable modem on this return path.

This has two advantages:


It is convenient to always combine the micro-nodes in
1. Less ingress multiples of 8, whereby clusters with 8, 16, 24 and 32 micro-
nodes are created. The attenuation of the passive coupling
and elements and the fibre length function are limiting elements
here.
2. The optical return path fibres can now be passively The ORA 21xD-RFoG micro-nodes are equipped with

having to use fewer return path receivers is consider- They comply with the current SCTE standard

ORM 43E-RFoG 24710047

The ORM 43E-RFoG is designed for use in RFoG


networks, in which typically 32, 64 or 128 optical micro-
nodes are connected to a return path receiver using
optical combiners.

This is possible because with the DOCSIS protocol it is


ensured that in each case only one return path receiver
sends a data package when a DOCSIS data package from
the cable modem exists at the input of the micro-node.

The passive optical coupling enables the saving of return


path receivers. The very cost-effective RFoG micro-nodes
ORA 11x-RFoG and ORA 12x-RFoG enable the designing
of very economic network concepts.

 Opto-electrical conversion of

What makes RFoG so attractive?

RFoG offers cable network operators an attractive option


to simply upgrade existing networks to FTTB or even
FTTH levels without exposure to unknown territory.

Previous investments in DOCSIS technology and a majority


of the optical transmitting and receiving technology can still
be used. The coaxial part of the HFC network can be
entirely replaced by a single fibre solution (FTTH).
Alternatively the existing coax cabling and cable modems
of the subscribers can be kept unchanged. The subscribers
are thus not inconvenienced with cable replacement.

How is RFoG different to HFC?

What needs to be considered when using RFoG?


RFoG offers greater reliability, signal quality,
bandwidth and economy
Some aspects exist that might be overseen when setting
up a first RFoG network, leading to erroneous test results
and misunderstandings. To avoid this, we recommend the The effects of RFoG technology on HFC architectures are
following: enormous: The replacement of coaxial cable amplifiers

Experiences and recommendations for RFoG projects

With signal quality, forward path (downstream) and


return path (upstream) must be differentiated between:

The gains in signal quality in the downstream cannot be


used for expanding the bandwidth by using higher modu-
lation types because the gain in signal quality with values
significantly below 1 dB is not sufficient.
The next higher modulation type requires a 6 dB-higher
carrier to noise ratio (CNR) - the number of channels,
carrier level and optical modulation index remain
unchanged.
Of course, complex considerations are created due to
adaptation of the parameters above in order to also
enable higher modulation types with less CNR increase.

The situation is completely new and improved in


the upstream:

1. The coaxial upstream is now usually implemented via


a mono-mode fibre that is subject to neither EMC nor
ingress

possible cluster sizes and fibre lengths:

Which part of an HFC network can be replaced
by RFoG?
There are two reasons for using a specially constructed
RFoG return path receiver:
It is possible to replace a complete HFC network with
RFoG. Also, specific parts (clusters) can also be replaced. 1. In order to gain an optical budget of up to 28 dB, con-

RFoG and EuroDOCSIS 2.0

EuroDOCSIS 2.0 is the perfect basis technology for use in


RFoG architectures. Thanks to high performance time slot
assignment by the CMTS, each individual cable modem is
assigned a time for data transmission, and this is ideally
supplemented by the RFoG technology.
This enables maximum exploitation of the optical budget;

With use of EuroDOCSIS 3.0 and the bonding of eight

RFoG is also the preferred technology for bringing a

Fibre-to-the-Home

General

Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) networks offer the highest data


rates, comprehensive multi-media services, rapid Internet,
Voice-over-IP (VoIP) phone services and much more.
The optical termination unit at the subscriber’s premises
thereby plays a key role in this type of network. Here
Kathrein’s MSW 400/4000 models combine comprehensive
functionality and high future-proofing with ease of handling.

The automatic configuration and well thought-out


mechanical design ensure quick and easy commissioning.
Practical details such as the integral multi-functional fibre
management box, easily accessible interfaces and the
sealing facility all ensure easier installation.

Users can take advantage of the lowest power consump-


tion offered for such products. The MSW 400/4000 comfor-
tably fulfill all EMC regulations also with an optical CATV
receiver included.

The modern design with contemporary colouring and


trendy blue or white LEDs makes the MSW 400/4000 a
real eye-catcher even in the most modern of living rooms.
The MSW 4000 is especially convincing, offering data rates
up to 1 Gbit/s.

Modern design, practical details

Modern design and a matt white housing make the


MSW 400/4000 a real eye-catcher in the living room.
An integrated web server allows configuration by standard
web browser on a LAN network, e.g. for configurations
when changing transponders.
An SNMP agent has been implemented for monitoring
over a network management system (NMS).

The integratable FMB 400 fibre management box can also


be installed separately - allowing the active optical network
unit to be connected at a later date. All fibres, splices and
optical connectors can be stowed away securely.

The MSW 400/4000 can also be installed without the fibre


management box, e.g. if a separate splice box is already
fitted. In this case the MSW 400/4000 can be wall-mounted
or used as a table-top box. Various attachment options
and removable rubber feet (supplied) cover virtually every
application case.

individually for each network termination unit - either for
all users or for specific users. SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) allows
incorporation into other management systems.
In addition, Telnet can also be used.

Video overlay for TV and radio services

Many FTTH networks offer a separate video overlay for


TV and radio services. The advantage being that an
existing CATV infrastructure can be used for transmission.

The optional optical CATV receiver offers the best of


Kathrein’s experience in CATV and HFC technology.

With the lowest input noise on the market, the unit


ensures the best of carrier-to-noise ratios even at very
low optical input levels down to -10 dBm. More
subscribers can be supplied with a given headend optical
output power – ensuring significant saving in system costs.
