The ARRIS OP3168P Octal PON Filter enables deployments of RFPON (RFoG with EPON) applications when used with OR3144H receivers. The single-width, half-depth module provides eight 3-port combiner/separator filters that combine (or separate) 1310/1490 PON signals from 1550/1610 RFoG wavelengths.
The module is designed to complement two OR3144H RFoG Diplexer/Return Receiver modules (versions with a 1610nm return wavelength) to readily support up to eight RFPON (RFoG with GEPON) optical network segments. Having the PON filters in a separate passive module allows the network operator to initially deploy RFoG only using a 1610 nm return, while providing a simple migration path to later add 1310/1490 nm PON filters for RFPON support.
High density packaging enables network operators to install up to nine "groups" (each comprising a single OP3168P Filter side-by-side with two OR3144H receiver modules) in a single 3RU chassis, thus providing support for up to 72 RFPON network segments per chassis. Assuming 32 CPEs per network segment, a single chassis can thus support deployments to over 2,300 residences.
