Huawei SmartAX MA5833 distributed converged cable access platform (D-CCAP) coaxial media converter (CMC) device is a full-service, highly intelligent digital cable network device designed for fiber deep migration. Installed at the edge of an HFC network, the MA5833 delivers a Gigabit bandwidth to a group of users at a lower cost than traditional HFC with centralized CMTS and FTTH. With the built-in EQAM or pluggable optical receiver, the MA5833 is fully backward compatible to existing QAM-based services. MA5833 supports DOCSIS 3.1. It can be installed in a network box, mounted on a wall, or hung on a cable. With Huawei OLT located at the head end aggregates up to several hundreds of distributed MA5833s. This solution provides space, power, and cooling efficiencies required for a large-scale transition toward fiber deep architectures. Positioning to support the SDN framework, the D-CCAP further evolves HFC.
