Description

The APEX1000, ARRIS’s next-generation all-purpose edge QAM, provides flexibility, high availability, high QAM density, MediaCipher encryption, and low power in an extremely cost-effective 1 RU platform. Up to three removable and hot-swappable QAM modules can be installed in the chassis. The QAM modules are available in three different hardware configurations. These are 2×4, 2×8, and 4×4. The first number indicates the number of RF ports, and the second number indicates the number of QAM channels per RF port. Any of the 48 QAM channels available can be used for Video-on-Demand (VOD), Switched Digital Video (SDV), or broadcast services.

The APEX1000 provides four SFP slots, allowing for up to four optical or electrical GigE inputs. This also allows the APEX1000 to support full transport stream redundancy covering all 48 QAM channels. The APEX1000 supports the NGOD R6 and D6 interfaces as well as the RPC SDV interfaces, allowing it to function as an SDV edge QAM in any standards based SDV system.

In addition, the APEX1000 performs network de-jittering, MPEG multiplexing, message insertion, and PSI generation following MPEG-2 transport specifications.
