The Benefits of an RF Video Overlay Solution

A modern day optical fibre network, capable of virtually infinite data transmission capacity, has become an essential platform to satisfy the high demand for large volumes of data transmission.

RF Video Overlay technology enables the addition of Television and Radio signal distribution over FTTx networks, allowing end-users to enjoy both analogue and digital television broadcasts without the need for the installation of external satellite and terrestrial antennas.

RF Video Overlay is based on a mature technology and provides reliable and high-quality linear television distribution platform that can be adapted to any size of network deployment.

Utilizing an existing / shared services fibre optic network, allows for a cost-effective deployment and low capital layout to developers and property owners.

A high-performance & cost-effective solution for RF video overlay distribution via FTTH

Introducing a reliable, high quality and cost-effective solution for distributing TV services over fibre-to-thehome (FTTH) networks.

As bandwidth requirements continue to increase worldwide, fibre networks are essential for global operators and service providers to build competitive services and deployment of FTTH networks. Fibre networks not only deliver higher data speeds and are therefore critical for attracting new users, but they also slash operating costs and increase maintenance efficiency.

Ideal for use in CATV, FTTX and HFC applications.

Optimized for 1550nm wavelength.

  • Each output of the EDFA is capable of feeding up to 128 end points
  • Single input for Feed on 1550nm.
  • Output adjustable by the Front Panel Interface or by the WEB User Interface
  • Maintenance function of one-time downward attenuation of 6dBm by buttons in the front panel or web SNMP, to facilitate the optical fiber hotplug operation without turn off the device
  • The Device can combine 1310nm and 1490nm wavelengths on the built in WDM together with the 1550nm output of the EYDFA
  • Via the Web Interface, one can configure the SNMP Traps, Alerts, Power output etc.
  • Safety Key to power off the lazer during system maintenance
  • Built in RF Test Port
  • Adopts JDSU or Oclaro Pump laser
  • Handy Indicator Lights built into front panel
  • Dual power supply for redundancy
Our range of SF-EDFA fibre amplifiers offer either 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 or 32 ports. Speak to us about a solution designed to meet all your needs.


Products used in conjuction with EDFA’s to deliver services

Digital cable TV (DVB-C, DVB-C2) and satellite TV services (DVB-S, DVB-S2) can be offered. The output signals of RF Video Overlay solutions are inherently compatible with standard TV or (U)HDTV sets and STBs (set-top boxes). As each solution may differ based on the existing infrastructure, various additional products may need to be included – Get in touch and let our Technical Team assist in designing the best solution for your requirements.
