The Cisco® 1.2 GHz Surge-Gap Passives product line is the latest evolution of the HFC network providing full support of the DOCSIS 3.1 standard. DOSCIS 3.1 support will allow MSOs to fully and efficiently utilize their broadband networks to provide the services that their subscribers demand. Support for DOCSIS 3.1 means that the frequency capabilities of the devices is increased to the full 1.218 GHz spectrum as well as full compatibility with the new OFDM signaling requirements. These new capabilities will allow MSOs to increase revenue generation by allowing increased capability across their networks to drive new and improved services to their customer base. Today's MSOs are challenged to deliver new and improved services to subscribers, as cost-effectively as possible. The Cisco® 1.25 GHz Surge-Gap Passives product line is the latest evolution of the HFC network providing full support of the DOCSIS 3.1 standard and OFDM sub carrier requirements. This allows MSOs to increase frequency of devices to the 1.218 GHz spectrum across the existing network with no signal degradation. Added capacity plus reliable performance means better service for customers. A key requirement for service quality is the reliability of the network. The Cisco 1.25 GHz Surge-Gap Passive family of products is designed for optimal reliability in broadband networks. The 6 kV surge specification, industry-leading hum modulation, and the power soak ratings of the directional couplers, splitters, and power inserters, coupled with the outstanding insertion loss specifications, help ensure the reliable performance required in the most demanding applications.
