Features and Benefits

  • Modular headend system with hardware modules that can change their function as needed for all current and future applications
  • All desired Individual solution functions can simply be activated and modified by uploading software
  • Modules can be mounted in the standard GN20, GN40 chassis as well as GN50 chassis with redundant power supply and integrated GigE switch
  • Additional modules are linked via IP interfaces increasing the processing capacity to match the computing performance of bigger multiplexers
  • Energy-efficient during operation
  • Remote diagnosis and SNMP traps for alarm activation reduce maintenance
