  • Page 19: Functional Description

    Functional Description Node The Model GS7000 Node is used in broadband hybrid fiber/coax (HFC) networks. It is configured with the receivers, transmitters, configuration modules, and other modules to meet your unique network requirements. This platform allows independent segmentation and redundancy for both the forward and reverse paths in a reliable, cost-effective package.
  • Page 20 Diplex filter choices are 52 MHz, 54 MHz, 70 MHz, or 86 MHz. The forward path of the Model GS7000 Node can be deployed with a broadcast 1310/1550 nm optical receiver with common services distributed to either four output ports (all high level) or six output ports (two high level and four lower level).
  • Page 21 Model GS7000 Hub/Node Description The Model GS7000 Node can be upgraded to a Model GS7000 Hub Node in the field. This is accomplished by installing EDFA modules, optical switching modules, and the SM/LCM in the node lid. The Model GS7000 Hub Node can then serve as a traditional node feeding the local HFC plant and as an optical hub with the optical amplifiers.

If an LCM was mounted in the node at the manufacturer, it should be configured correctly as shipped.
  • Page 35 Local Control Module Configuration Procedure Note: During the module check, the LCM micro-controller samples the inputs from the optical transmitters (up to 4), optical receivers (up to 4), power supplies (up to 2), and AC lines (up to 2), to determine which of these items are installed in the node. The LCM also attempts to contact optical switches and EDFAs that may be present in the hub/node.
