Aurora Networks Unveils Digital Return Module for Germany’s BK Fibre Nodes

Aurora Networks announced the release of its Digital Return module for the BK Fibre Node that will enable cable operators in Germany, and neighbouring countries, to better meet bandwidth requirements driven by high-demand services.


Specifically customized for the region’s installed base, Aurora Networks’ Digital Return module is the first digital return solution for Germany‘s unique BK architecture.


As shown with its field-proven 5-65 MHz Digital Return module for the NC2000 and NC4000 node platforms, this new module provides cable operators the support they need when launching upstream channel bonding with EuroDOCSIS 3.0 services.


Digital return delivers increased performance and operational savings. In addition, with Aurora‘s unique 2-fer”  technology for full segmentation, it is a compelling fiber-efficient solution.


Aurora Networks’  “2-fer”  technology supports two independent 5-65 MHz return segments on a single wavelength; “2-fer”  technology has been a solution deployed widely throughout the world by major cable operators from the USA and Canada, to Latin America, Asia, Europe and now available for BK-equipped networks.


Since 2005 Aurora has provided many advanced, cost-effective solutions to top-tier operators in the German market”,  said John Dahlquist, vice president, marketing. By customizing our highly successful digital return technology to meet Germany‘s BK system requirements, we are equipping operators with the tools they need to future-proof offerings for EuroDOCSIS 3.0 and beyond without the need for expensive equipment swap out”.


Key Digital Return Applications


  • More Efficient Segmentation – With up to two unique RF input channels per digital return transmitter wavelength, up to 15 wavelengths with CWDM, and up to 40 wavelengths with DWDM, Aurora Networks digital return technology provides the flexibility for very fiber-efficient solutions to segment BK Fibre Nodes. In addition, through cable’s first and only SFP-based digital return technology, the process of wavelength selection, sparing and service restoration is greatly simplified.


  • Ability to Drive Fiber Deeper – Aurora Networks digital return technology is optimized to drive fiber deeper into the network, securing more bandwidth while at the same time reducing RF amplifier cascades and their associated high operational costs.
