Antronix to Unveil Backwards Compatible 1.6 GHz Multi-Tap and Wi-Fi Powering Device at Cable-Tec

Cranbury, N.J., August 22, 2019 – Broadband technology manufacturer Antronix will be showcasing its latest devices – a backwards compatible 1.6 GHz multi-tap and Wi-Fi access powering device – at the SCTE-ISBE CableTec Expo 2019 in September.

The new Antronix multi-tap provides a singular solution for operators trying to expand bandwidth and control costs. The spectrum increase from the available 1200 GHz to 1650 MHz is the most significant one-time jump manufacturers have been able to provide, and backwards compatibility saves operators the substantial expense of re-splicing to replace housing units. The new series of powering devices uniquely provide AC power to outdoor wireless access points in several kinds of applications.

“We are particularly excited to add a new 1.6 GHz multi-tap to our Milenium line,” said Antronix president Neil Tang. “Cable operators are looking for solutions that allow them to expand bandwidth service to their customers as efficiently and cost effectively as possible, and now Antronix has that solution. There are currently no other backwards compatible multi-taps above 1.2 GHz on the market.”

The power extractors will power strand or lamp post-mounted small access points, provide AC power for up to three Wi-Fi points, or provide a powering solution for hybrid fiber cable.
