About the Product

The RT3S, 1310 nm Return Transmitter - Standard series, is a high-density module with two lasers. It is designed to plug into PBN’s latest Advanced Intelligent Multi-services Access platform - the AIMA3000.

PBN’s RT3S is currently available in a dual transmitter configuration. It features a full-spectrum advanced transmitter designed for multi-services operators (MSOs) to increase network capacity to satisfy an ever-growing subscriber demand for bandwidth.

The RT3S employs an advanced RF circuit design and two high quality independent low-chirp lasers. In addition, it has a cutting-edge optoelectronic design for the delivery of high-quality transmissions, over passive fiber optic networks.

All RT3S models can also be conveniently monitored and controlled through a computer connected to one of the Ethernet ports or an Android mobile device via 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 can be done when using PBN’s NMSE web-based management system.

  • Plug-and-play with the AIMA3000 platform
  • High-quality 1310 nm isolated low-chirp analog DFB lasers
  • RF amplifier gain blocks with advanced GaAs technology for better performance
  • Frequency response of 5 MHz to 204 MHz
  • Local laser shutdown via web interface or optional hand-held controller (AHHC)
  • Totally independent and controllable circuits in one module slot
  • Alarm monitoring via ASMM web interface and PBN NMSE
  • Automatic thermo-cooler control (ATC) for a consistent laser temperature
  • Automatic power control (APC) for a consistent optical output power
  • Remote firmware upgrade and auto upload/download of configuration files through ASMM web interface or using PBN’s NMSE
  • Bulk firmware updates through PBN’s NMSE
  • Fully FCC, CE and RCM compliant
