Cable AML announced in June of 2005 the deployment of a digital MMDS system with 54 channels of full digital video in Okara Province in the North East of Pakistan. The system was commissioned by Ranja Enterprises of Lahore and has been in commercial operation ever since. It reaches subscribers in a 35 Kms radius from the main headend, an area with more than 40,000 potential subscribers.
The deployment consists of a fully integrated digital headend including CAS (Conditional Access System) to prevent unauthorized reselling of programming content and to provide multiple program tiers. The system includes a broadband base station transmitter and associated transmission equipment.
The system is designed to be easily expanded to provide wireless Internet service as soon as the regulatory authorities provide the permits.
Omar Nazir, CEO of Ranja Enterprises selected Cable AML’s system because of the superior technology and Cable AML’s ability to provide the system as a turnkey solution, with full integration of the headend, transmission and subscriber hardware and software.
Following the smooth system installation and excellent operating results, Omar Nazir said “we are so pleased with the system that we have started planning to provide the service to several cities that are as far as 60 Kilometers from the base station.”
