Integrated MMDS and Wireless Internet Systems
MMDS (Microwave Multi-channel Distribution Systems) is a technology developed to broadcast multi-channel television from a point of origin called the Headend to a subscriber base within range of the transmitter tower. Each subscriber receives the television signals through a low-cost down-converter and decodes the signals via a set-top box. As a wireless alternative to Cable Television, MMDS has been able to provide the same services, and for that reason is also referred to as “Wireless Cable”.
MMDS was originally developed to broadcast 31 analog TV channels over a 186 MHz wide frequency band from 2.5 to 2.686 GHz, although Cable AML manufactures MMDS systems for operation at non-standard frequencies from 2.3 GHz to 30 GHz.
By setting aside at least one channel to broadcast digital data and a return channel to receive data from subscribers, MMDS systems can become integrated MMDS and Wireless Internet Systems (simultaneously broadcasting TV programs and providing wireless Internet connectivity).
Cable AMl’s Integrated TV + Wireless Internet Systems have some important key features:
Cable AML systems avoid proprietary solutions and incorporate MPEG2, DVB-C and Simulcrypt- compliant solutions compatible with all encoding formats and all STEREO and SAP transmissions.
Cable AML systems are designed in modular elements, making it easy to upgrade base stations for redundancy, to add repeaters for covering remote areas or to increase power as required by system growth.
Digital-Ready RF equipment
All Cable AML Broadband RF equipment is Digital TV Compliant. All models of transmitters and repeaters are capable of multiple analog and digital signals (either or both simultaneously in the same transmitter/repeater).
Fast System Implementation
Cable AML systems can be commissioned and put to work in very little time, increasing payback and enhancing cash flow.
Custom Tailored Frequency Bands
Cable AML systems can be configured to accommodate unique spectrum allocations within licensed band ranges from 2.0 to 30 GHz.
Cable AML systems are integrated and tested as a complete systems at the factory. Hands-on customer training on system installation, operation and maintenance is provided at the factory while the system is operating as an integrated unit.
