Aurora Networks Launches Industry-first 5–85 MHz Upgradable Node Solution

Products exemplify company’s leading industry role in the evolution of cable

SANTA CLARA, CA – October 14, 2013 – Aurora Networks, Inc., the number one optical access solution provider for cable operators, will debut a fully upgradeable 5–85 MHz return path solution at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo taking place from October 22–24 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Featuring Aurora Networks’ 102–1002 MHz downstream-capable nodes coupled with its Universal Digital Return™ technology, it is the only solution on the market that can be purchased and seamlessly upgraded from 5–42 MHz to 5–85 MHz in the return path.

Driven by the needs of today’s high-demand services like data and video conferencing, operators continue to face the looming pressure to provide customers with increased upstream bandwidth capacity. With advances like DOCSIS® 3.0 and the preparations for DOCSIS 3.1, the industry is projecting that operators will soon expand their return path from today’s standard, 5–42 MHz, to 5–85 MHz. Paving the way with another innovation to add to its long list of industry-first solutions, Aurora Networks is leading the evolution for more bandwidth in the upstream by doubling today’s standard with its new solution.

The solution consists of Aurora Networks’ NC4000 and NC2000 nodes that support a 5–85 MHz return path. Moreover, for the first time with Aurora Networks’ Universal Digital Return solution, DT4250N, an operator can purchase 5–42 MHz technology today and then upgrade an entire node to 5–85 MHz tomorrow, with the return path transmitter requiring only the push of a button.
