S-A Adds to Product Line


Scientific-Atlanta Inc. is adding a new Ethernet module to its small-business to midsized-business product line, as well as an upgrade to its nanometer-transmission products.

The new Ethernet module can deliver six channels of fiber optic Ethernet connectivity to support commercial services. S-A said the module for the “Proteus” node-return digital solution allows operators to provide over 100 megabits per second of voice and data services using their existing infrastructure.

The new “Prisma 1310” nanometer transmitter provides 14 dBm (decibels per meter) power output needed to deliver signal links of under 40 kilometers at a lower cost than 1550-nm technology, the company said.
