About the Product

The PBN AIMA3000 RRAS series Analog Return Receiver - Standard is designed for multi-services operators to increase network-return capacities for the ever-growing demand for bandwidth, while minimizing physical headend space and power usage.

With the optional embedded Full Band Capture (FBC) module, it enables the operator to capture and monitor the return path spectrum helping the operator to quickly find and locate the upstream noise and the related upstream signal levels. Advanced spectrum analyzing software is available as in a standalone version or as module within PBN’s NMSE Software suite. It also can be easily integrated into operators exist network management system.

Next to above mentioned online management and controling capabilities the can also be conveniently monitored and controlled through a computer directly connected to one of the Ethernet ports of the ASMM module.

All module settings are retained in non-volatile memory to ensure trouble-free operation. Bulk updating, automatic uploading and downloading of configuration files is possible using PBN’s NMSE web-based management system.

  • Bandwidth 5 ~ 204 MHz to meet EuroDOCSIS and DOCSIS3.0/3.1 frequency band requirements
  • RF output 47.5 dBmV at -6 dBm optical input and OMI of 6%
  • Wide band receiver (1260 ~ 1620nm) to suit CWDM and DWDM applications
  • Allows up to 64 receivers (4x16 Modules) in only 4 RU of space
  • User-selectable MGC or AGC
  • Easy to install due to RF-Paddle board backplane design
  • Plug-and-play and hot-swappable
  • Dedicated testport per return channel
  • Fully FCC, CE and RCM compliant 
  • Real-time alarm monitoring with supported SNMP traps, and local alarm management through the ASMM
  • Full Band Capture offers automated and 7*24 return path/upstream RF and data performance monitoring and analysis
  • Assist operators to preemptively identify and address spectrum variances
  • Lower capital expenses by eliminating the need for expensive test equipment
  • Web-browser access eliminates the need for a thick client. A mobile APP is also available for field technicians to remotely access spectrum data
  • An intuitive and familiar user interface, designed with spectrum analyser operators in mind
  • Improve network maintenance efficiency and Increase customer satisfaction
  • FBC software which can work independently, in PBN NMSE or be integrated into third-party systems
