CSX-1641 StandaloneASI to Gig-E Aggregator

WooshCom’s CSX-1641 based aggregator is a modular approach to combining MPEG content from DVB-ASI satellite receivers into Gigabit Ethernet for switches, QAM modulators or other headend equipment.

Due to its modular architecture it can be configured in increments of 4 ASI ports to convert up to 60 ASI ports in a 2U chassis. More ports may be converted by extending beyond a single chassis. CSX-1641 modules may also operate on a stand-alone basis.

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 compliant 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,... 72,... ASI ports
  • Easily add ports as needed or move from headend to headend as needs change
  • Highest density aggregator in the industry
  • 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 on Gig-E output
  • Centrally locate or place in multiple racks to simplify ASI coax wiring & collect via Gig-E
