Wireless "Triple Play"
A Wireless “Triple Play” System is a broadband system designed to provide Digital Television, Wireless Internet and VoIP (Voice over IP) simultaneously to a large number of subscribers.
Cable AML’s Wireless “Triple Play” System is a true multi-service platform that can transmit multiple carriers and multiple data access systems, including digital TV, shared bandwidth point-to-multipoint data connectivity, VOD (Video-on-Demand) and VoIP telephony.
Typical services include:
- Multichannel Digital Video, including VOD (video-on-demand)
- IP data connectivity for fast Internet access and VoIP
- Dedicated bandwidth links for high-capacity private data networks
- Video-conferencing, telemedicine and other multimedia applications
BWA-4000 Broadband Wireless Triple Play
The BWA-4000 is made possible by Cable AML’s high-power broadband multi-carrier transceivers. By dedicating different carriers to different applications, the BWA-4000 can be optimized for practically any mix of customer requirements within a given area.
Key Advantages of Cable AML’s Wireless “Triple Play” Systems:
- Use non-proprietary TV and data systems, widely available from multiple vendors
- Modular design allowing for incremental growth
- Flexible design allowing for optimum allocation of available bandwidth between TV and data applications
- Extensive experience in system design, fabrication and implementation
- Efficient and low cost options for subscriber equipment
The most significant expense of any wireless video + data system is the “customer premises equipment”.
Systems configured to allow sharing of equipment between several customers will reduce deployment costs substantially. Choosing the correct subscriber configuration is the most important decision a system operator has to make when selecting the appropriate wireless system.
Subscriber equipment for the “Triple Play” wireless systems offered by Cable AML can be configured in three general categories of subscriber configuration options (see figure below).
The simplest configuration is the Single Subscriber Option where a single transceiver feeds a single subscriber. With this option nothing is shared. This configuration is most appropriate for residential customers in single family dwellings.
The second category is called LAN Subscriber Option, where a single transceiver feeds multiple users through a single subscriber modem. With this option, the subscriber modem is shared by up to 32 users on a local area network which is connected to the shared subscriber modem. This configuration is generally used for commercial subscribers where the LAN is considered a single subscriber.
The third category is the Shared Subscriber Option in which a single transceiver is shared by multiple subscriber networks. The configuration of the subscriber networks sharing the transceiver can vary. They can consist of any combination of a single user, multiple users on a single LAN, or multiple subscribers sharing the same subscriber modem.
The number of subscriber networks is limited only by performance requirements of the aggregated subscribers versus the bandwidth available through the transceiver. This configuration option is appropriate for multi-dwelling and/or multi-tenant locations and offers the greatest potential for cost savings.
