Innovative design enables cable operators to rapidly scale delivery of 5G services
EnerSys (NYSE: ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for cable broadband and telecommunications networks, announced today that the Alpha® ADOM outdoor gateway, a DOCSIS 3.1-enabled OEM module, has been recognized among the best in the industry by the 2023 Broadband Technology Report's Diamond Technology Reviews, a program developed to recognize the most innovative products available to the cable broadband industry.
The Alpha® ADOM outdoor gateway is an enabler for deploying 5G small cells across the cable broadband Hybrid Fiber-Coax (HFC) infrastructure, which provides high speed, low-latency backhaul and power across North America and around the globe. The Alpha® ADOM gateway received the honoree score of 4.5 out of 5 Diamonds in Mobile Networking category. The Alpha® ADOM gateway was recognized for its innovative design and value. Key features that were highlighted for the judges’ review include:
- Temperature-hardened CableLabs® certified DOCSIS® 3.1 modem for outdoor backhaul applications.
- HFC coax connection and power extraction/RF filtering that provides an isolated, noise free power source for the radio.
- Complete Radio Frequency noise ingress and egress protection from radio and noise interference between wireless and wireline networks.
- Hands-free installation provisioning through integrated automatic RF step attenuation, eliminating the need for manual RF power adjustments.
- Integrates into existing element management systems.
EnerSys has collaborated with Samsung to incorporate the Alpha® ADOM gateway into Samsung’s 5G CBRS Strand Small Cell, which is designed for multi-system operators (MSOs) deploying their mobile networks. Samsung’s solution integrates the Alpha® ADOM outdoor gateway, 5G baseband, radio and antenna into a single form factor for easy deployment. The Samsung 5G CBRS Strand Small Cell can be deployed on a cable operators’ Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) infrastructure to deliver 5G service, with the Alpha® ADOM outdoor gateway that enables the HFC network to be used for both backhaul and power. The Samsung 5G CBRS Strand Small Cell allows cable operators to rapidly scale delivery of 5G service using their existing HFC infrastructure, without the need for permits—and with connectivity for efficient deployments.
“We are proud to be recognized among the best in the industry for our innovation excellence, delivering high-value power solutions that enable our customers to confidently and cost-effectively deliver 5G services through their existing infrastructure.,” said John Hewitt, EnerSys Vice President of Broadband Communications. “We are also excited to collaborate with Samsung to deliver next generation solutions that provide both backhaul and power capabilities. Our experience and product designs for cable broadband outdoor networks helped Samsung focus on their core strengths in radio design and development, including high reliability and system integration.”
