“Foxcom’s superior DBS and Cable TV transport technology, when combined with 1Gbps Active Ethernet transport, offers a best of breed, all-in-one communication infrastructure. The BsmarTV fiber optic distribution system is designed for any MDU, gated community and FTTx applications” said Mr. Jack Hotz, Foxcom’s CEO.
The DMC option adds 2× 100/1000Mpbs ports to the BsmarTV AL5R. The first port is an uplink port and is a standard Small Form factor Plug-in (SFP) module that gives the customer the flexibility to deploy any kind of optical infrastructure. The second port is the Node/Home facing port with a standard RJ45 interface which connects to any industry standard Ethernet device.

RF, Ethernet and environmental parameters are managed and monitored using an embedded management system making it simple to manage in a stand alone environment. In addition, the BsmarTV AL5R with the DMC uses standard SNMP management protocols making it easy to add to existing network management systems.
