Modular Active Forward Distribution System

Model Number: MFS-208


Our compact and reliable Modular Active Forward Distribution System for modern headends and hubs,  Model MFS-208,  allows for complex combining and introduction of new services without disrupting those currently active.  The unit is ideal for applications such as (SDV) Switched Digital Video,  (VOD) Video on Demand, (VOIP) Telephony, (HSD) High-Speed Data, internet gaming, and others.

 The MFS-208 has one main (‘System’) input for all common channels and 44 secondary (Insertion) inputs grouped in three levels, allowing for broad-, mid-, and narrow-casting, as well as eight independent outputs to feed optical transmitters or additional MFS units in series to accommodate more complex designs.

Two grouping loop-through ports are placed on the back panel to increase functionality by allowing the insertion of a channel deletion or other types of filters, or by increasing the number of secondary inputs. These loop-through sections can also enable future introduction of RF redundancy when wired together with our Model MCS-111 redundant switch.

  • Expanded bandwidth to 1GHz

  • Completely modular 2RU chassis

  • Load sharing built in redundant power supply module

  • Front panel mounted test points & LED’s

  • Combines & distributes input signals to transmitter TX output ports in groups of 8, 4, 2, and 1

  • New dual mid-cast input module option allows insertion to a group of two transmitter TX outputs

  • Excellent flat frequency response

  • Superior return loss

  • Low noise & excellent distortion parameters

  • Highest isolation between groupings
