Ranja Enterprises of Lahore, Pakistan, last month installed a digital MMDS system in Okara Province of Pakistan.
The system is going to be installed in three phases. The first phase included a DHM-6001 digital headend module, the output of which feeds a 250 Watt broadband transmitter. The DHM-6001 is capable of digitally encoding six TV programs and then multiplexing them into a single carrier which is modulated with 64-QAM.
In the second phase, eight additional DHM-6001 units will increase the number of TV programs in the system to 54. The third and final phase of the project will add wireless Internet access, using the same broadband transmitter for the downstream and an MDS band receiver for the upstream.
The system uses an omnidirectional antenna on a 60 meter tower and is providing coverage at distances beyond 40 km, as witnessed by Ch. Omar Nazir, CEO of Ranja Enterprises.
Installation and commissioning of the system was accomplished in less than 48 hours from the time he equipment arrived in Pakistan, according to Jehangir Khan, Director of Operations for Ranja Enterprises, who was assisted by Zulfiqar Ali of Media Engineering (Pvt.) Ltd., Cable AML’s representative in Pakistan.
