In order to maximize scalability and flexibility, the NSG 9000-6G is designed as a completely modular system. The chassis is fitted with a passive backplane, while all the processing and modulation functions are performed on retrievable modules. The chassis has nine QAM RF module slots; each module has two QAM RF ports. Each port is capable of supporting up to 8 adjacent and/ or non-adjacent QAM channels on Annex B and C, or up to 6 QAM channels on Annex A. The system can host two AC or DC power supplies, which are redundant to each other.
Harmonic NSG 9000 6G
The NSG™ 9000-6G is the latest generation of the Harmonic high density Universal EdgeQAM system, capable of reaching up to 144 QAM RF outputs per unit. The device is designed as a highly integrated digital video gateway which multiplexes on-demand content streamed over an IP network. The NSG 9000-6G was engineered for scalability; it is capable of growing in QAM density from 1 to 144 QAMs per unit.
