An 18-month trial of a “triple play” wireless system capable of providing simultaneously digital TV, high speed data and voice has been successfully concluded in Izuka City, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan.The state-of-the-art system has being operated by V-Networks to provide triple play services to remote stations at distances of up to 5 km from the Main Base station. Based on the trial data report submitted by V-Networks, the Japanese government gave an extremely high evaluation to the 18 GHz trial system for local government service.
This frequency was allocated for data transmission until now, but as a result of the triple play service trial results, the Japanese government decided to revise the law. On December 2008, the government solicited public comments and a revised law was issued in February 2009.As a result of the Government action, the system has received nationwide attention and V-Networks is planning nationwide deployments in time for the mandated conversion of analog to digital TV signals planned nationwide for July 2011.
The broadband system can provide service not only for Terrestrial digital TV broadcastand Internet service but also for Local government LAN service, emergency broadcasting and other critical Local Government functions.
