Motorola broadband unveils new compact Medialine 2000 optical node.

KE[micro]ln, Germany -- KE[micro]ln, Germany, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The new M2K-ON optical node is based on Motorola's successful portfolio of M2K Medialine 2000 amplifiers

Motorola, Inc. Broadband Communications Sector today introduced its newest M2K optical node, the Motorola M2K-ON. The Motorola M2K-ON is the first optical node developed to operate in an existing M2K amplifier pedestal housing -- and incorporates Motorola's hybrid technology and efficient fibre management into a compact design. The announcement was made at the ANGA Cable 2003, held June 3-5, 2003, in KE[micro]ln, Germany.

An extension of the popular Medialine 2000 pedestal amplifiers currently deployed throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the Motorola M2K-ON utilizes existing robust technology and common accessories to Motorola's M2K and MLK amplifier lines. The Motorola M2K-0N uses an integrated optical receiver and is capable of supporting either one or two RF outputs. The return path can also be configured with a variety of isolated Fabry Perot or Distributed Feedback transmitters. The M2K-ON also has provisions for status monitoring via the Hybrid Management Sub-Layer (HMS) compliant SZZ402 transponder.

"Leveraging the success of our existing Medialine 2000 amplifier footprint, we can now offer cable operators the same type of compact housing for our optical nodes," said Paul King, Motorola corporate vice president and general manager, Europe, Middle East, and Asia (EMEA). "Cable operators are familiar with our Medialine 2000 amplifier housing, so it was imperative that we provide that same type of housing for our optical nodes. The Motorola M2K-ON can provide cable operators with that same comfort level and affordable price they have come to expect from Motorola solutions."

Motorola Broadband is displaying the Motorola M2K-ON at ANGA Cable 2003, stand B4.
