NuLink Digital Deploys PBN's AIMA3000 HFC Platform in Georgia
NuLink Digital, a provider of triple play services including TV, Internet and voice across RFoG, GPON and HFC broadband networks, has chosen to deploy PBN's AIMA3000 HFC platform in its Newnan, Georgia system. The AIMA 3000 is a high-density, power-efficient 4 RU HFC platform with space for 16 working modules to provision 64 complete forward/reverse optical paths in a 12 RU space.

Scott Madison, VP of Technical Operations for NuLink, cites “high-density, power efficiency, ability of the specially-designed reverse receivers for RFoG networks to accept a very low-level input and exceptional customer support” as reasons for his choice. Additionally, NuLink has already successfully deployed hundreds of PBN’s RFoG DPON units in their DOCSIS 3.0 system with reverse wavelengths operating at both 1610 nm and 1590 nm.

Over 100 PBN Optical Nodes Deployed in ASU System
Arizona State University in Phoenix, AZ, USA has deployed over 100 optical nodes from Pacific Broadband Networks (PBN) across the Arizona State University campus plus the associated laser optical transmitters and reverse path receivers in the headend. SMStv in Phoenix was chosen as the system integrator and performed the actual installation.

“One of the key reasons that the PBN system was chosen was because of the ability of PBN’s Network Management Software to monitor a carrier in the return path and automatically notify if power has gone off in a remote building location,” said Ron Pence, VP of Engineering for SMStv.
