Ericsson EQ8000 Universal EdgeQAMs

High Density Universal Edge QAMs

High density Universal EdgeQAM supporting VOD, DOCSIS, SDV and Broadcast applications simultaneously.  With its pay-as-you-grow modularity, support for DVB scrambling, hot swap modulator cards and power supplies, the EQ8096 provides an extremely flexible edge modulator for cable operators.

Product Description

The Ericsson EQ8096 Universal Edge QAM is based on open standards and incorporates CableLabs DOCSIS 3.0 specifications.  The EQ8096 is a step-change in QAM devices and is designed to exceed the functionality, density, and cost points required for all uses of a cable edge modulator.  The EQ8096 simultaneously supports Broadcast, VOD, Switched Digital Video (SDV) and High Speed Data (DOCSIS) applications from within the same chassis.

The high density chassis supports "pay as you grow" modular design which supports up to eight 12QAM modulator cards.  Each RF output supports up to four adjacent QAMs to hit the sweet spot for QAM striping resiliency strategies.

The EQ8096 has designed-in redundancy on all inputs, hot-swappable modulator cards, low power consumption, and built-in options for scrambling/encryption and DTI.  It is tailored for the new wave of multimedia applications to enable cable operators to take a leadership role.


  • Very high QAM density, modulation and up-conversion in a single 2RU enclosure, enables space and cost savings.  Fewer numbers of units to install, configure and maintain, leading to further savings through operational costs, time and labor.
  • Single platform supporting all applications simultaneously, enabling greater operational flexibility and cost reduction.
  • Remote configuration and monitoring through Web access GUIs allowing centralized monitoring and control.
  • Cost-effective solution driven by high level of integration.
