When cable operator Sistema de Comunicaciones de Quiroga (Mexico) needed to feed 65 channels to two nearby towns in the Mexican state of Michoacan, the company chose Cable AML links to carry the signal 11 km and 25 km in different directions (San Andres and Eronguaricaro) from an existing headend at Quiroga.At the time, General Manager Alejandro Baltazar said, “we are extremely pleased with the performance of the Cable AML system.” Less than a year later Sistema decided to start delivering service to San Jose, a town about 22 km away.
The same transmitter originally installed to service San Andres and Eronguaricaro provided the signal required to the new town of San Jose through a Repeater, allowing the company to start cable service in San Jose from the Quiroga headend without the expense of a new headend. Ing. Alejandro Baltazar said, “The capability to expand the microwave system is creating opportunities for our company to provide Cable TV service to nearby towns in a very cost effective way, without the expense of a long fiber run or a new headend.”
