The BrightPath ® optical tap enclosure has expanded capabilities that provide cabling flexibility and facilitate simpler installations.

Additionally, the tap is wavelength compatible with Passive Optical Network (PON) technologies and provides a future proof network architecture.

The BrightPath Optical Solutions (BOS

TM

) tap consists of a plastic enclosure, a mounting bracket, and an optical tap module. The tap module, spliced in-line with the distribution fiber, couples or taps off some of the power from the distribution fiber, divides it and feeds it to the fiber drops connected to the tap. Tap ports are connectorized to facilitate a simple connect and disconnect of the customer drop cable, or tap ports can be nonconnectorized. Similar to the Radio

Frequency (RF) tap in a Hybrid

Fiber/Coax (HFC) plant, the tap is available in a number of different tap values and port counts. Selection of a particular tap value will determine the optical signal level that the MicroNode

(MN) will receive.

The optical tap enclosure provides an environmentally sealed housing for the tap module. It contains a distribution and drop area, each with its own access doors. Each area has fiber management features for both the cable and the exposed fiber and storage for fiber splice protection sleeves. The distribution side can accommodate management of up to

36 fibers and can also accommodate a branch cable to facilitate service to an adjoining area or a business customer. The drop side can accommodate up to 8 fiber drops as well as the splicing of associated pigtails.

The access plate covers and protects the optical tap module and provides the mounting platform for the bulkheads, which provide tap port access on the drop side of the enclosure.

Below-Grade Optical Tap

The BrightPath

®

Optical Solutions (BOS) below grade optical tap is a cost effective solution for deployment of below grade, aerial and pedestal mount applications. The enclosure provides superior sealing capability and meets all industry requirements for below grade applications. The body to cover seal in the enclosure is accomplished with a clamp ring and cured rubber gasket to ensure a positive and repeatable fit and sealing of components even after multiple closure entries. Service cables in the enclosure are sealed with a cured rubber grommet.

The BrightPath optical tap consists of a plastic enclosure, a mounting bracket, and an optical tap module. The tap module, spliced in-line with the distribution fiber, couples (“taps off”) some of the power from the distribution fiber, divides it and feeds it to the fiber drops connected to the tap. Tap ports can be connectorized or non-connectorized in accordance with the customer’s specifications. Similar to a Radio

Frequency (RF) tap in a Hybrid Fiber/Coax

(HFC) plant, the tap is available in a number of different tap values and port counts. Selection of a particular tap value will determine the optical signal level that the MicroNode will receive.

The tap enclosure provides an environmentally sealed housing for the tap module and cable connections. Distribution and drop cable connections are freely accessible when the enclosure dome is removed. An integral slack storage basket provides storage and fiber management for unused buffer tubes in the distribution cable. The distribution cable is spliced to the tap input and output ports in the distribution splice tray. Fiber drops are spliced to the tap ports in the drop splice tray. For connectorized taps, an integral SC/APC bulkhead is provided for connectivity.

The enclosure can accommodate a wide variety of distribution and drop cables in the six entry ports. Distribution cables up to 0.51 inches can be accommodated in the two larger ports and drop cables up to 0.31 inches can be accommodated in the four smaller ports. The enclosure can be configured to accommodate up to eight drop armored cables and up to twelve flat drop cables.

A variety of mounting brackets are available for the below grade enclosure that allows it to be mounted on a strand, pole, pedestal, wall or inside a vault. The enclosure can also be direct buried for additional cost savings.

Feature

• Aerial, pole, pedestal or UG mount

• Can be direct buried

1302 MicroNode

The 1302 MicroNode is the next generation of subscriber electronics for the BrightPath

®

Optical Solutions (BOS) product line. Its new mechanical and electrical design provides greater component durability, flexibility and upstream performance.

Installed at the customer’s location, the MicroNode provides the transition from an optical network to a Radio Frequency (RF) network and provides an interface to the customer’s inside wiring. In the downstream direction, it contains an optical receiver to convert the signal back to its original RF format, and an RF amplifier to supply the designated RF signal level into the home.

In addition, the MicroNode utilizes an Automatic Gain Control

(AGC) circuit to keep the RF output constant over the optical input range. The output RF connection is a standard female “F” connector, which can also be used for local powering from the home via a power inserter. A second “F” port is also available when a dedicated powering option is preferred. In the upstream direction, the MicroNode contains an optical transmitter to carry the RF signals, generated by cable modems and set top boxes inside the customer’s location, back to the headend. With its new transmitter drive circuitry, the MicroNode provides faster laser activation and higher upstream link performance.

To prevent unwanted RF signals from entering the network, the reverse transmitter utilizes a threshold circuit that stops it from being activated by signals that are below a preset level. If a signal coming from inside the residence is below that threshold, the transmitter will not be activated. In order to operate over a single fiber network, the MicroNode is also equipped with a Wave Division

Multiplexer (WDM) filter, which multiplexes the 1310nm upstream and 1550nm downstream wavelengths. The MicroNode circuitry is mounted in a diecast aluminum housing that protects the electronics from the outside environment and provides a high level of RFI shielding.

Feature

• 1 GHz RF spectrum

• Transparent return path

• Return transmission threshold

• Lower RF drive level

• RF based AGC

• High RF output with up-tilt

• Diecast aluminum housing

• “F” port powering

Benefit

• Extended RF capacity

• Allows use of existing Customer Premises Equipment (CPE)

• Suppresses noise from the subscriber’s residence

• Enables higher link performance

• Constant RF output over optical input range

• Reduces need for in home amplifier

• Protects electronics and provides excellent shielding

• Allows in home powering over coax cabling

The 1603 MicroNode is the next generation of subscriber electronics for the BrightPath

®

Optical Solutions (BOS) product line.

Its new mechanical and electrical design provides greater component durability, flexibility and upstream performance. With a

65/85 MHz diplex filter, the MicroNode can operate on networks carrying PAL B/G signals. In addition, with a 1610 nm upstream transmitter, the MicroNode can operate on networks utilizing G/

GEPON compliant systems.

Installed at the customer’s location, the MicroNode provides the transition from an optical network to a Radio Frequency (RF) network and supplies an interface to the customer’s inside wiring. In the downstream direction, it contains an optical receiver to convert the signal back to its original RF format and an RF amplifier to afford the designated RF signal level into the home.

In addition, the MicroNode utilizes an Automatic Gain Control

(AGC) circuit to keep the RF output consistent over the optical input range. The output RF connection is a standard female “F” connector, which can also be used for local powering from the home via a power inserter. A second “F” port is also available when a dedicated powering option is preferred. In the upstream direction, the MicroNode contains an optical transmitter to carry the RF signals, generated by cable modems and set top boxes inside the customer’s location, back to the headend. With its new transmitter drive circuitry, the MicroNode provides faster laser activation, and higher upstream link performance.

To prevent unwanted RF signals from entering the network, the reverse transmitter utilizes a threshold circuit that stops it from being activated by signals that are below a preset level. If a signal coming from inside the residence is below that threshold, the transmitter will not be activated. To operate over a single fiber network, the MicroNode also contains a Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) filter, which multiplexes the 1610nm upstream and

1550nm downstream wavelengths. The filter also blocks G/GE-

PON signals, operating at 1490/1310 nm, so the MicroNode can operate simultaneously on networks utilizing PON systems.

The MicroNode circuitry is mounted in a cast metal housing that protects the electronics from the outside environment and provides a high level of RFI shielding.

Battery Backup Unit

The BrigthPath

®

Optical Solutions (BOS) Battery Back Up

(BBU) unit is part of CommScope’s Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) product line. It is a small form factor, user friendly back up unit optimized for Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) applications. The BBU resides indoors at the subscriber location and provides DC power and backup to a single BOS MicroNode.

To simplify installation and reduce cost, it connects in line between the standard MicroNode power supply and the

MicroNode itself, using standard female F connector interfaces. The BBU monitors the power being delivered to the MicroNode and, in the event of the loss of AC power, switches to the backup battery providing power for eight hours. When not in backup mode, the unit simply passes power from the power supply through its output port to the MicroNode.

To ensure ease of use and to eliminate the need for expensive custom battery packs, the BBU is designed to use standard, AA size alkaline batteries. By incorporating simple LED indicators and a user friendly battery compartment lid, a customer can easily maintain and replace the BBU batteries eliminating that operational cost for the operator.

Feature

• 8+ hour battery backup

• Standard “AA” batteries

• Subscriber accessible battery compartment

• ”F” and DC barrel power connectors

• Audible low battery alarm

• LED status/ power indicator

• Integral protection circuitry

Flat Drop Fiber Optic Cable

All-Dielectric Construction

CommScope’s Flat Drop cable design is an ideal all-dielectric solution for the distribution and drop portions of the BrightPath architecture. It is a small, lightweight cable construction designed for ease of handling and installation. The costs associated with bonding and grounding is eliminated with the all-dielectric design and the dual ripcords simplify cable access and installation. This robust drop cable design, supports direct buried, conduit and aerial self-support applications. The Flat Drop cable is also compatible with industrystandard attachment hardware, and is qualified to the ANSI/ICEA

S-110-717-2003 Standard for Optical Fiber Drop Cable. The design is also RUS/RDUP: RD Telecommunications Program listed.

Toneable Construction

CommScope’s Toneable Flat Drop cable design is suited for the burial distribution and drop portions of the

BrightPath architecture. The design incorporates a 24 AWG copper conductor to simplify the location of the cable after it is buried in the field. This allows for an easy, one step installation in ducts or open trenches since there is no need for the addition of a separate metallic component for detection in underground applications.

The metallic portion is easily separated so the wire can be routed to the grounding point and does not affect the performance of the main cable. The Toneable Flat Drop cable is qualified to the ANSI/ICEA S-110-717-2003

Standard for Optical Fiber Drop Cable as well as RUS/RDUP: RD Telecommunications Program listed.

Feature

• All-Dielectric and Toneable versions available

Conduit - Providing Damage Prevention & Access to Underground Facilities

Additional Cable Protection

Cable Replacement Capabilities

• Empty, Toneable and Fiber-in-Conduit options

Interest in underground damage prevention is surging. Federal legislation and an array of state laws have heightened concern on protecting vital underground networks. Network operators spend billions to ensure continuity of service. Cable protection is even more critical in high-end

FTTH underground networks. CommScope ConQuest products provide an ideal solution.

CommScope manufactures High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) conduit with factory pre-installed fiber optic cable or pull lines. Cable-in-Conduit

(CIC) will provide added protection and reduce the cost of field installing cable. CommScope also offers toneable conduit, an HDPE conduit with an embedded 18 gauge copper clad steel tonewire. Toneable conduit is the ideal product to use with all-dielectric fiber optic cables.

Factory pre-installed cables or pull lines are available in toneable conduit.

If installing the cable in the field is the only option, CommScope offers HDPE conduit empty or with factory pre-installed pull lines.

Feature

• HDPE

UV Protected

• C ontinuous Lengths

• Installs faster than traditional PVC stick pipe and eliminates the need to inventory

sweeps, bends & elbows. Installation by directional bore or plow methods

• Reduces down time by facilitating the replacement of damaged cable and allows

cable operating systems to upgrade their services with minimal expense

• Toneable conduit allows the system owner to locate buried assets – detectable at

extended distances and depths

• Eliminates the risk of damaged cables due to improper field installations saves

time and labor costs associated with field installing cables
