SANTA CLARA, CA - Aurora Networks, an optical transport solution provider focused on the cable operator market, announced that its NC2000 optical node now is available throughout the Americas. A platform designed for cable operators expanding their network evolution to the MDU market and low-density rural areas, the NC2000 enables operators to maximize the bandwidth of existing hybrid fiber-coax (HFC), Fiber Deep and RF Over Glass (RFoG) deployments. It simultaneously provides a migration path to future network architectures with support for next-generation access modules, Node PON, Fiber on Demand and BitCoax. Earlier this year, Aurora Networks introduced the NC2000 optical node in Europe. The platform’s bottom-entry, low-profile design is suited for cable operators working in space-constrained areas, given that the node’s housing can be mounted on walls, inside pedestals and underground. Operators can deploy the NC2000 platform in both HFC and Fiber Deep applications to support current architectures and future network evolution. The platform is fully compatible with the proven Aurora Networks NC4000 node platform, utilizing common modules and plug-ins, headend equipment for operation and shared integrated status monitoring and control. When configured as a virtual hub (VHub), the NC2000 Mini-VHub houses a fully operational hub in standard Aurora Networks’ node housing. It also enables cable system evolution toward new architectures such as RFoG, RF-PON and GEPON.

Update: Aurora also announced that it successfully integrated its Node PON platform with Sigma Systems’ Device Provisioning Manager for DOCSIS equipment provisioning and activation. This demonstrates that cable operators can leverage the same OSS provisioning technology for Node PON that they employ for DOCSIS cable modem services. The testing also verified the capabilities of Aurora Networks’ AUROS software platform, which enables the company's Node PON solutions to integrate seamlessly with cable companies’ OSS as well as their service provisioning and billing infrastructure. This means a Node PON OLT module can be provisioned, configured and monitored much like a typical cable modem termination system (CMTS).
