It is critical for Cable Operators to significantly increase the efficiency and capacity of their existing HFC (hybrid fiber-coax) networks in order to support the growing bandwidth demands for broadband services. Existing HFC infrastructure must be upgraded – by optimizing the network. Complete and extensive overbuilds are not a viable option. Not only must existing networks be upgraded in order to enable the economical expansion of broadband services, it must be done seamlessly without disrupting existing infrastructure. This requires high quality building blocks and components that reduce complexity, in order to meet the growing demand for bandwidth optimization related to the roll out of the DOCSIS 3.1 standard.
DEV Systemtechnik, a Quintech Company, will showcase its advanced technology for HFC Networks at ANGACOM 2016 in Cologne Germany. MODULO is the next generation solution consisting of universal, space saving active and passive components for RF transmission, for both upstream and downstream applications. Collectively, the company draws on over two decades of field-proven cable plant infrastructure technology experience, and its position as a primary supplier of components for installing and upgrading legacy and greenfield HFC cable networks. MODULO raises the bar in quality and performance for these network applications and upgrades, and fully supports the DOCSIS 3.1 transmission standard.
Universal: a single module, either a Splitter with monitoring port, or a Combiner with monitoring port, provides a 50% reduction in RU footprint
Smart: Designed and engineered to meet customer needs and network configuration challenges. All modules are designed with equalizers, amplifiers (gain and slope), redundancy switches, optical receivers and transmitters and RF modules for E/O transmission. Integration into a Monitoring & Control System allows for real-time observation of RF signals
Easy: All modules have been designed with operator functionality in mind, regardless of customer network variations and requirements, all in a single MODULO chassis

Quintech Electronics & Communications, Inc., is pleased to announce its newest addition to its NEXUS Wireless Test Solutions and Matrices, the NEXUS Wi-5G attenuator Matrix. It is the first of its kind matrix designed to simultaneously support 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, LTE-A, 802.11 WiFi, and LTE-U frequency bands with 2x2 to 8x8 MIMO connections. 64 fixed and variable attenuators provide up to 90 dB of attenuation that can be used for handover, beam forming, wireless mesh network test and validation of other network equipment and chipsets. Also, 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi access point interference and VoLTE interoperability and circuit-switched fallback testing can be made in a controlled environment while isolated from commercial signals.
“We are excited to be offering the most flexible attenuator matrix for wireless test labs,” said Frank Elling President of Quintech Electronics. “The NEXUS Wi-5G is designed from the requirements provided to Quintech from our Tier one equipment manufacturers and carrier customer. We deliver high power handling along with very high port-to-port isolation across a very broad frequency spectrum. Our Q-LAAMP software package provides an intuitive web browser GUI with both manual and automated sweep control of the attenuators. We expect this solution to increase our customers’ lab efficiencies and productivity which enables them to decrease their time to market for new releases of devices and applications.”
GULFSAT Communications is the leader in the communication service industry in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. During the planning period to upgrade their GULFSAT Teleport in Cyprus they approached DEV Systemtechnik for a powerful RF Matrix Switch.
After demonstration and tests in Kuwait GULFSAT decided to deploy the DEV ARCHIMEDES Matrix Switch as this solution needs less rack space and has significant lower power consumption than predecessor products. Finally, ARCHIMEDES served GULFSATs requirements best to meet their targets with its integrated functionalities such as LNB Powering, Redundant Controller and the easy to use Multi-Touch Display. The Matrix can be upgraded easily and will meet GULFSATs future needs for growing capacity demands being extremely flexible due to modular design.
The capabilities and flexibility of DEVs’ switching solution ARCHIMEDES defines the next generation of L-band Matrix Switching Systems with the concept to expand your infrastructure while reducing capital expenditures – “Expansion by Reduction.”
Nikesh Paul Mathew, Senior Satellite Engineer says: “When DEV Sales Managers demonstrated their RF Matrix Switch ARCHIMEDES at our premises in Kuwait, we were impressed with its features. We decided to install DEV ARCHIMEDES in our teleport in Cyprus as we can manage and control the services remotely.”
About GULFSAT: Established in 1995 as a pioneer in the delivery of satellite communication services, Gulfsat Communications is now the leader in the communication service industry, providing an innovative platform for satellite communications, satellite broadcasting and managed telecommunications solutions in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Gulfsat designs, integrates, and deploys reliable, secure and cost-effective turnkey communication solutions to enterprises, government organizations and home users.
