DISAT Ingenierie and Informatique has installed some of the most technically advanced equipment in the world for the company’s integrated MMDS and Wireless Internet service in Bertoua, capital of the east province of Cameroon (Africa).
Bertoua has a population of approximately 175,000 people. The system delivers broadband MMDS services in a point-to-multipoint configuration in the 2,500 to 2,686 MHz band, broadcasting digital TV channels in the standard PAL B format through Cable AML’s 250 Watt broadband transmitter.The same transmitter is used to broadcast the downstream carriers of a wireless DOCSIS high-speed Internet access service with capabilities for data and VOIP.
“Each subscriber receives the TV channels and Internet data signals through a downconverter and transmits the upstream Internet data through a transmitter in the 2.3 GHz band. The TV signal is decoded via a set-top box and the Internet signal is fed to a standard DOCSIS Cable Modem,” said General Manager G. Togna.
DISAT plans to provide service to 2500 TV subscribers and 500 Internet subscribers in a 10 km radius in the immediate future. As the subscriber base grows and creates more demand, the Cable AML modular design system will make future upgrades simpler and more affordable.
