1550nm externally modulated optical transmitter is the core equipment in this system. RFTV is a unidirectional analogue and digital video broadcast. It adopts high efficiency modulation mode for RF carrier wave and its economy, flexibility and bandwidth validity is beyond comparison of IPTV. Adopting EPON or P2P access mode to realize triple-play, FTTx, RFTV broadcasting network in 1550nm optical transmitter wavelength still plays an important role.
The production of 1550nm Externally Modulated Optical Transmitter needs an expensive LiNbO3 external modulator and a high power, narrow bandwidth, low noise DFB laser, so it has high request for the production technology and is difficult to be adjusted. Compared with the 1550nm Direct Modulated Optical Transmitter, it has the feature of high cost and high price, which restricts many excellent features of external modulator and makes it unable to be widely used in CATV Network. But in recent years, with the improvement of optical components production technology and the decreasing of price, the advantage of high cost performance of 1550nm externally modulator technique has been highlighted.
We are the well-known manufacture in analog externally modulated optical transmitter in the world. SNP8500A, an economical 1550nm Externally Modulated Optical Transmitter, is produced specially for middle and small CATV station. Optical transmitter adopts narrow bandwidth (Typ.=1MHz), low noise and continuous wave DFB laser as the light source, adopts CATV special LiNbO3 external modulator to modulate signal, and adopts a series of unique innovation technique to reach the excellent system control. With 47~862MHz bandwidth, CNR ≥ 53dB, CTB ≤ -65dB, CSO ≤ -65dB, SBS: 13, 16, 18adjustable, Optical transmitter can make CATV network transmit video, audio and data with high performance. The machine is equipped with perfect RS232 communication interface, SNMP network management and 1+1 backup power supply.
