CSX-1641 2UASI to Gig-E Aggregator

WooshCom's 2U chassis will accommodate from 1 to 15 CSX-1641 modules thereby providing support for up to 60 ASI ports, which is the highest ASI port density available on the market.

This is perfect for the headend operator that likes to have common functions centrally located in their racks. The CSX-1641s unique cascading capability enables the CSX-1641 modules to be cascaded together to form one Gig-E output from all 60 ASI inputs or the modules may be sub-divided into multiple separate aggregation groups, each with its own Gig-E output.  This gives the operator great flexibility in trading off the benefits of multiple parallel outputs versus the efficiency of putting the most amount of content on a single Gig-E output. An entire chassis may me managed by a single Ethernet connection.

Dual redundant power supplies are supported by this chassis providing power from an AC or a -48VDC source. Power supplies may be field replaced by a headend technician without taking any of the CSX-1641 modules out of service.  This enables a power supply fault to be rectified while providing continuous service to your customers.

The flexibility to cascade or not cascade devices provides operators the opportunity to sub-divide a chassis into multiple ASI aggregation groups each with their own Gig-E output. Bandwidth usage on each Gig-E may thereby be optimized.

WooshCom's proprietary Fixed Rate Null Packet Filtering algorithm is the only Null Packet filtering algorithm on an aggregator in the marketplace which provides an MPEG complaint output stream that produces flicker free results on even older set-top boxes. It may be enabled on an ASI port-by-port basis, providing further bandwidth optimization by reducing the number of MPEG NULL packets.

Operators may scale the number of ASI ports to fit their needs alleviating the tendency to overbuy unnecessary ports. Purchasing one additional CSX-1641 module achieves sparing at very low cost. Together these factors yield the lowest deployment cost.

 

Some of its benefits:

  • Modularity provides usage based configuration - pay only for what you need
  • Low sparing cost keeps total cost low
  • Flicker free video on older set-tops with proprietary Null Packet Filtering
  • Build aggregator of virtually any size using cascading - 4, 8, 12,... 60,...ASI ports
  • Easily add ports as needed or move from headend to headend as needs change
  • Arrange for from 1 to 15 outputs from a chassis - you pick
  • Minimize port usage on Ethernet switches
  • Eliminate the need for a switch by aggregating to one Gig-E output
