Fibre in, coax out with Miranda

LUMO, Miranda’s highest density electrical-to-optical and optical-to-electrical converter is being introduced on Stand 8.D41 at IBC.

Packing 36 I/Os into a 1RU frame, its modular design enables each converter to be serviced while the unit remains in operation.

LUMO also includes dual redundant power supplies and frame controller with dual redundant IP-connections for comprehensive system monitoring and frame health alarm warnings.

The unit uses the same SMPTE-compliant fibre SFP modules that are found on all 3Gbps products in Miranda’s portfolio. The platform’s unique cable management approach addresses connectivity concerns by providing fibre connectivity on one side of the unit with coax on the other, providing for easy separation of heavy copper cable from lightweight fibre.
