The LEQ-FBW is a full bandwidth equalizer allowing full forward and reverse cable equalization. By utilizing a full bandwidth equalizer, return path signal sources, such as cable modems, can be operated at full power at all subscriber locations without fear of overdriving the return active device and causing clipping distortion. Incident return signals at the return amplifier will have similar levels. The full bandwidth equalizer is also independent of forward and reverse frequency split since no diplex filter is involved. USP Standard.
