The remote powering system RPS 1600 is a highly efficient, modular system that employs the installed copper infrastructure to remotely supply power to active components, e. g. street cabinets. Network operators benefit from saving up to 40% on power supply compared to local powering solutions, doing without trenching, and speeding up their G.fast, VDSL, LTE and fibre rollouts.
The system consists of a power supply unit (PSC 1600/ PSC 0800) and remote components (PSR 04XX / 08XX). The modular concept of the RPS 1600 guarantees meeting individual requirements of the operators: One remote component can employ up to four (PSR 04XX) or up to eight (PSR 08XX) copper wire pairs for remote powering, delivering up to 22 W* per wire pair. The cascaded configuration of components can deliver up to 1,440 W. With the new power/ VDSL combiner (diplexer) unit PSD 0800 the RPS 1600 system is able to use also such copper lines, where VDSL2 service is running and delivers hereby “power over DSL”. By doing this the CAPEX costs for installations can further reduced as no fibre line is needed to power DSLAM in FTTx deployments by using the VDSL2 as backhaul technology. The state of the art management unit PSM 1001 gives RPS 1600 the carrier grade touch.
