Quality Fiber and RF - www.qfrf.com
Quality Fiber and RF manufactures and distributes a wide variety of broadband Cable TV equipment, including amplifiers, fiber transmitters, and CATV optical receivers. We also supply links for Audio/Video, ASI, SDI, and HDMI High Definition Video, and high-speed data. We stock fiber equipment for satellite TV, such as L-Band fiber transmitters and receivers, including our new L-Band single fiber CWDM Fiber Link. QFRF offers a great variety of fiber passives, such as single mode fiber jumpers, WDM's, and both standard and custom asymmetrical fiber couplers.
Jeff Oberholtzer, the president of QFRF, has been involved in Cable TV since 1979, and served as the Chief Technician/Technical Supervisor for Blue Ridge Cable/Pencor Services for 16 years, from 1983 through 1999. Jeff has a heavy background in electronic design and began manufacturing fiber optic equipment for Blue Ridge Cable’s fiber network, which led to a job offer at Quality RF Services (QRF) in Jupiter, Florida in 1999. After working at QRF and ATX Networks for 8 years as an RF design engineer and technical support engineer, Jeff started Quality Fiber and RF, Inc in 2007/2008 to manufacture his own line of fiber optic equipment and amplifiers.

RF2F - www.4cable.tv
The Company specializes in providing technical solutions to multiple-system operators (MSOs) in the cable and satellite television systems industries. This includes product repairs, upgrades, tests, and services for companies in the cable television (CATV) industry. The Company was founded in 2005 by Steve Richey and Andrew Staniak, who each has over 47 years of experience in engineering and project development in the CATV industry. The products designed and manufactured by 4 Cable TV are revolutionizing the industry by allowing MSOs to efficiently extend the reach of current network infrastructures and reduce overall system operating costs.
Products and Services 4Cable TV offers the following suite of products:
RF2F™ (Coaxial to Fiber Optics):
This proprietary line of coax-to-fiber taps allows cable operators to reach homes within their franchise authorized area that was previously not economically reachable. Fiber optics allows longer distances between the existing network and the new users at a lower cost per foot for the cable.
This product is currently the smallest and most inexpensive mini-node offered in the market. It was designed and manufactured at the request of a major cable company client, and it provides a cost-effective solution to increasing capacity for providing services.
This circuitry allows a low current 1 GHz amplifier (and/or line extender) to be constructed with a dramatic 50% decrease in current power requirements while maintaining essentially the same operational specifications.
RFoG (RF over Glass):
This signal distribution technology combines the existing cable TV infrastructure with the efficiencies of fiber optics to effectively reach the home in a way that is competitive with the existing options. Other solutions require a new back-office infrastructure while RFoG uses the existing infrastructure. RF2F™ is an extension of RFoG technology and RF2F™ has been referred to as point to point RFoG.
This application combines the RFoG technology platform with our PowerMiser™ engineering to take fiber signal all the way to the last device before the customer. This results in a much more reliable system with lower operating and maintenance costs.
This extension of the PowerMiser™ and the Node+0 utilizes solar power and helps the operator extend service to areas not presently served without adding power sources. DSR (Dynamically Scalable Return) Mini-nodes: This technology allows nodes, R-ONU’s (RFoG optical network units) to dynamically adjust their return bandwidth simply be changing the channel lineup at the headend. Present technology requires that the diplex filters in each unit be changed, which in many cases means an amplifier rebuild or the replacement of the plugin diplex filters at a considerable cost.
Engineering, Repairs, and Upgrade Services: In addition to its products, 4Cable TV has offered these services to clients on a case by case basis. These services are highly labor intensive and have been a staple in our past and present revenue models. Although providing these services have generated stable revenue streams in the past, the Company is shifting its operations towards the production of its product lines as the demand has significantly increased.
