MAXNET II Modular RF
ATX’s MAXNET II, Platinum Series product line (Patented) provides a fully integrated RF & Optical Signal Management solution. By utilizing the properties of MCX connectors & mini coaxial cable, MAXNET II offers all of the benefits of our original MAXNET line & so much more in a lot less space. MAXNET II provides users with an unlimited number of module configurations to choose from so that they can easily implement their network in any manner they desire. The RF product lineup includes splitting/combining passive modules (16, 8, 6, 4, dual 4-way, & triple 2-ways), DC modules, amplifiers, power supplies, and RF switches.
Key features include:
- Ultra-dense MCX connector-based RF/optical signal management platform
- Greater than 200% rack space savings over legacy management solutions
- Significantly reduces network lash-up complexity by using MCX connectors and miniature coaxial cable
- 3RU active chassis can accommodate both active & passive modules – up to 24 single-width actives or passives (narrowcast amplifiers, optical receivers) or 12 dual-width modules (Forward RF Amplifiers, RF Detector A/B Switch)
- 3RU passive chassis is also available
- Modules are positioned for front access to test points, controls and pad & EQ locations
- Active chassis includes monitoring & control over the network (HMS compliant (SNMP v2c)) or through a web browser for all active modules in the chassis. Email alarm notification is also supported.
- ALL active modules are hot-swappable
Chassis & Cable Management Options
MAXNET II is offered in a compact 3RU chassis (passive and active versions available). Each chassis holds up to 24 single-width modules or 12 dual-width modules (any combination of modules is possible). The modules push and lock into the chassis so no mounting hardware is necessary. Also available are 1RU passive chassis.
A variety of cable and fiber management options are offered to complete the line.

Hot-swappable, 110, 220 VAC or -48 VDC to 24 VDC power supply modules are available. Redundancy is automatically implemented when two power supplies are engaged into the active MAXNET II chassis and remote powering is accommodated. Voltage, current, temperature, and fan status parameters are easily monitored over the network (HMS compliant (SNMP v2c)) or through a web browser. Email alarm notification is also supported.

Connectors/Tools, Terminators & Optical Attenuators
A combination of MCX, F, and BNC connectors for miniature coaxial cable enables users to easily interface between the MCX-based MAXNET II platform and legacy F and BNC equipment. MAXNET II’s optimized RF performance, non-blind entry MCX, F and BNC connectors and terminators allow for easy field installation. Predetermined unused ports can be terminated at factory. To ensure quality MCX performance, use ATX’s MCX headend connectors and terminators.

Status Monitoring & Control
SNMP-based (HMS compliancy) and web-based monitor and control functions are enabled for all active modules using software developed in house at ATX’s software development facility. ATX’s MAXNET II products use the HMS standard SNMP MIBs, published by the SCTE http://www.scte.org/standards/. Any retail SNMP manager software or the embedded web page interface can fully control these products without any proprietary software from ATX.
