Universal Services Multiplexer


The Universal Services Multiplexer (USM) dynamically aggregates video and data into MPEG2-TS Multiple Program Transport Streams (MPTSs) and transmits the bundles digitally over a fiber link to the nodes, where Aurora's RQ4000 series Remote QAM modules perform QAM-RF modulation for the Aurora Networks' optical node platform.

The USM enables the Remote QAM modules to carry any mix of services—broadcast, narrowcast, cable IPTV, and DOCSIS, even in the same QAM channel.
