AirCable doubles channel capacity with Scopus
The Digital Broadcast Corporation (DBC), based out of Roanoke, Va., is using Scopus Network Technologies' compression hardware and management systems to increase channel capacity at subsidiary, AirCable America.
By integrating Scopus’ Codico technology into its new head-end system, AirCable will double the channel capacity of its digital MMDS services, which will reach subscribers throughout Roanoke, Va., and within a 50-mile radius of the city.
Scopus Network Technologies’ equipment will be integrated with digital MMDS transmission equipment and set-top receiver units provided by Finline Technologies, a Waterloo, Ontario-based company specializing in digital wireless cable applications. The complete head-end system includes Scopus’ E-1000 encoders, controlling RTM3800 multiplexers and the NMS4000 series network management system, as well as the company’s IRD2600 receivers for monitoring purposes.
