ANCS (Active Noise Cut System)

(Click to enlarge)

ANCS is a total solution system for ingress noise of upstream CATV lines.
It provides efficient solution for noises caused by Internet upstream line or IP phones due to the reset digital CATV.
By placing NCB (Noise Cut Box) near the origin of ingress noise, it monitors the noise of upstream line 24-7 and reports the monitored data to the central system while performing auto-circuit control.
NCB can be installed next to the protective device at the entrance of housing complexes or apartments to communicate with central monitoring system.
It can contribute to the diffusion of IP phone when installed at 3000 ~ 5000 apartment complexes within the CATV network, or it can be used as a solution to particular apartment complexes with noise problems. In some cases, it can be installed in all the apartment complexes within a specific area.

Product Overview

ANCS is designed to detect and measure the noise occurring near the origin of ingress noise and quickly contain the influence of such noise to a minimum level.
It also provide the signal quality management of CATV lines as well as data and guidelines to improve upstream lines.

* Noise Measurement

NCB (Noise Control Box) terminal measures the noise (33dBuV~75dBuV) occuring in upstream lines. The error margine is as low as ±3dBu.

* Auto Terminal Control

Automatically and accurately conotrols the upstream lines according to the measured noise and the specified control table.

 1) PASS

PASS the upstream signals regardless of the noise.

 2) ATT

Insert an attenuator 1dB~25dB (stepless) according to the measured noise and the specified table.
It improves the line's CN value dramatically by raising the level of oscillator's signals with modem remote sensing.

 3) CUT

Insert an attenuator above 45dB to CUT the upstream line and block the influence of ingress noise when the noise reaches a specified level.

 4) Show the gradual
      noise level

Central control PC shows green (good), yellow (attention), red (danger) inditcators according to the noise leve.

* Central control box NCB sends the self conditions and measuring data to the Central Box (CB) and control PC through FSK connection. All the NCB control and data stroage/analysis are done by the control PC through the Control Box. Each NCB can be managed by the Central Box.
* The max number of NCB 3000 units of NCB (with ID numbers) can be collectively controlled.
