Cable, Docsis, RF and HFC
Hybrid fiber-coax bi-directional cable networks and headends are area of our special expertise since our company started building such systems over 15 years ago. Over the years owning and supporting cable operators from all sizes we have answered to most difficult challenges coming from the need for distributing video, data and voice over this demanding technology and now our cable engineers can provide proffesional end-to-end design projecting solutions such as:
RECEPTION AND ANALOG PROCESSING OF TV SIGNALS: Gathering the needed tv channels from various sources like sattelite, terrestrial, IP streaming or directly from their studios is most essential task at cable headends. We have tested and proven turnkey solutions for reception of all kinds of sources and further processing (demodulation, remodulation, RF-level coupling and amplifying) of the signals, providing maximal quality of the analog signals at the out of the headend.
SALES AND SUPPORT FOR CMTS DEVICES: Cable Modem Termination Systems are the essential equipment for implementation of DOCSIS (data over cable service interface specification) in order to make cable networks bi-directional and enable transport of data and voice traffic through them. These devices can be quite complicated and knowledge-demanding since they interface the ethernet-based IP protocol on one side and translating it to RF modulations on the other side. Since these devices are not simply plug-and-play, besides our sales team which can assist you in choosing right vendor and model, our support team offers configuration, support, management and software tools for getting the most from every CMTS.
COMBINING AND DISTRIBUTION OF SIGNALS: Analog TV channels, digital DVB-C multiplexes and DOCSIS downstreams and upstreams on the RF stage at the core and the output of the headend must be carefully combined and precisely multiplexed together to obtain correct levels and Signal-to-Noise ratios at the edge of the headend. Further distribution of the signals via optical nodes, amplifiers and passive components must also be precisely tuned in order to maximise the quality and robustness. With experience with the latest instrumentation and metering technology and continued education and practical work, our staf can provide you with the best designs for any size of cable distribution systems.
SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS: From the very beginning we knew that having the right software tools is essential for proper operation of the hardware. Since the tasks involved in CATV and DOCSIS operations are multidisciplinary and custom to every network, we specialised a part of our company to address these issues. Our software department has been developing solutions for ours and our clients networks from the establishment of our company, having our own networks as test scenarios and today we can offer top quality and top functionality suite for billing, provisioning, monitoring and management of cable services BIPROM.
