|MaxLinear and Teamly Digital Partner on MoCA 2.5-Based Hybrid Fiber-Coax Micronode|
FiberCableStream addresses a key dilemma of every cable MSO, justifying the extremely high cost of “last meter” hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) network upgrades to enable fiber to the building (FTTB) or fiber to the home (FTTH).
These “last meter” network upgrades are extremely difficult to cost-justify as the expense of construction and installation is not distributed across hundreds or thousands of users but rather a single user or best case low tens of customers. Designed specifically to deliver ultra-broadband services utilizing the existing HFC plant, FiberCableStream enables new multi-gigabit capacity while co-existing with legacy cable, satellite and terrestrial networks on the same coaxial cable.
FiberCableStream is a novel implementation of a micronode that combines a passive fiber optic architecture serving as the transition point from the passive optical network (PON) to the “last meter” coaxial network. Up to eight MxL371x MoCA 2.5 networking ICs are integrated into a FiberCableStream and serve individual client devices or coax network units (CNU) that leverage MaxLinear MxL371x networking ICs to deliver multi-gigabit speed services to the individual subscriber.
The FiberCableStream micronode allows cable operators to leverage current DOCSIS technology while offering competitive high-speed data services as they transition to DOCSIS Full Duplex technology. A key benefit of FiberCableStream Micronodes is power savings compared to alternative solutions which enables them to be reverse powered over coax by the CNU installed at each customer premise.
FiberCableStream is easy to install, operate and maintain. The systems are designed to comply with DOCSIS provisioning, ensuring simple installation and transparent maintenance very similar to existing DOCSIS solutions. The fiber deep termination eliminates ingress funneling, laser clipping, CTB, CSO, CPD, micro reflections or any upstream RF network impairments. FiberCableStream is based on standardized technologies, including PON, MoCA 2.5, DOCSIS/CCAP and RF overlay that allow it to maintain end-to-end quality of service (QoS).
“Cable operators will benefit from a cost competitive, flexible and
operationally transparent gigabit broadband delivery system that can be
deployed quickly over existing networks without any impact to legacy
DOCSIS and QAM video services. Our implementation can be provisioned as
a standard DOCSIS device and enables scalable, selective network
“Ultra-broadband access networks open up new service options for cable
operators, making it imperative to build out networks as quickly as
possible. MoCA 2.5 is a proven technology that is delivering
gigabit-speed data services today making it a great choice for these
MxL3710 and MxL3711 Technical Features
Both the MxL3710 and MxL3711 utilize MaxLinear’s patented
The MxL3710 features two SGMII high-speed interfaces while MxL3711 supports one SGMII and one PCIe. Both products exceed strict performance requirements defined by the MoCA 2.5 standard. Having this additional performance margin enables customers to significantly reduce the overall implementation cost and provide more reliable service over a larger installation area.
MaxLinear MoCA 2.5 ICs come complete with a suite of diagnostic software functions that provide detailed visibility into radio frequency (RF) and networking specific parameters. Most notable is the spectrum analyzer feature that enables unique installation and remote diagnostic tools, reducing truck rolls, improving installation quality and improving overall network performance with proactive network management tools.
