Pace tests Multidweller in UK

Set-top vendor Pace has deployed its Multidweller distribution platform for the first time in the UK.

The product, which aims to deliver digital services to hard-to-reach residents in multidwelling apartments, has been installed in apartment blocks in South Yorkshire as part of a project with not-for-profit organisation The Advanced Digital Institute and broadband provider Thales. Pace said the project was designed to determine how best to provide fast internet access to residents in multi-dwelling, digitally disenfranchised areas. The results will be announced next month.

The MultiDweller converts existing co-axial distribution cabling into high-speed, triple-play, bi-directional networks, allowing operators to deliver broadcast and broadband services to multiple end subscribers without the need for any modification or additional cabling.
