Product Highlights

  • Create new MSO revenues by leveraging the HFC network
  • High bandwidth PoE-powered delivery ideal for security cameras, Wi-Fi, traffic signals, sensors, etc.
  • Connection through power passing taps allows mobility to strategically locate devices within proximity of hardline coax
  • Dual-PoE ports provide cost-effective backhaul for multiple devices
  • Description

    Deliver uninterruptible power and Ethernet services to outdoor devices utilizing the high bandwidth networked power grid inherent to the existing HFC infrastructure.

    The SMG family of outdoor HFC powered gateways extract power and RF from HFC hard coax and convert through a hardened DOCSIS modem to deliver power and Ethernet backhaul communication for external network devices via a standard IEEE 802.3 at Power over Ethernet (PoE) connections. Rugged outdoor hardiness and flexible mounting options allows power and backhaul to be delivered to virtually any location within the proximity to the HFC hard coax.

    Adding powered network drops throughout the HFC network enables deployment of security surveillance, WiFi, traffic control, digital signage or any other appliance requiring reliable power and high bandwidth backhaul.


    The AlphaGateway SMG was the perfect solution to enable new security and surveillance solutions in Georgia and Michigan. With the ability to tap into the broadband backhaul and power of the Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial (HFC) Network, Alpha’s gateway solution increased the location options for security cameras while meeting the budget constraints of the city.

    Installing the AlphaGateway SMG provided:

    • Power: The AlphaGateway SMG provides uninterruptible power for safety and surveillance cameras up to 100 meters.
    • Backhaul: Connecting to the existing HFC network ensures high speed broadband for deployed security cameras.
    • Real Estate: Utilizing the AlphaGateway SMG along the HFC Network allows for future deployment and scalability.
