Teleste to highlight Luminato

TelesteFinnish technology company Teleste will use ANGA COM to showcase its Luminato headend platform and associated modules.

Teleste last year introduced a new application module for the company’s Luminato headend platform. The module includes a full-featured Linux computer and makes it possible to code headend applications for various applications.

Swedish conditional access provider CryptoGuard is using the module in its smart and secure access control system, which is built on a deeper integration between the CAS server and headend.

Typically, operators manage conditional access rights on a CAS server that is separate from the headend itself. In CryptoGuard’s solution, the CAS server is replaced by the Luminato application module, which removes the need for separate hardware, according to Teleste. Due to the deeper integration between the server and headend, the solution offers increased data security and flexibility in controlling and managing access rights, and creates additional benefits via reducing any compatibility issues, as well as cutting down hardware maintenance costs.

“We are pleased to cooperate with Teleste, which will further strengthen CryptoGuard’s position within the market. The integration of CryptoGuard’s highly secure Conditional Access System and the ‘pay-as-you-grow’ model, reducing initial costs and realizing attractive OPEX savings, makes it a viable option for any size of operator,” said Hannu Vunnel, marketing director, CryptoGuard.

At ANGA COM 2016 Teleste will also showcase a new Teleste Luminato multireceiver, which is a compact and multifunctional module for Cable TV and IPTV operators. Featuring two physical ports with dual receivers, the module enables several possible input configurations.The multireceiver supports several standards, including DVB-S2X reception for high bitrate satellite video. It can be used to receive payloads via satellite, terrestrial and cable networks and via IP inputs, either encrypted or free-to-air. All input alternatives are enabled with software and they are available without additional software keys/licenses, according to the company.

The deployment ensures the delivery of high-value services from versatile sources to consumers within cable TV networks

Finnish operator Sonera is using the Teleste Luminato headend platform to power its cable TV network. Telia-owned Sonera operates a nationwide backbone network, and provides its customers with both TV services and access network services. Including almost 100 sites, Teleste’s deployment aims at a gradual Edge QAM update in Sonera’s entire backbone.

“During our long-term cooperation with Teleste in different types of projects, Teleste has always implemented its high capabilities as a solution provider that meets our extensive requirements. Therefore, we are pleased continue our cooperation in this nationwide Edge QAM renovation project,” said Sakari Kangasvieri, department manager, Sonera.

Also at ANGA COM, Teleste is introducing two new DOCSIS 3.1 compliant amplifiers to the AC family with several intelligent features and improved performance. The company says it now has a complete portfolio of 1.2GHz broadband products from headend to home.

According to Teleste, its portfolio now includes all the devices needed to build networks that offer data transmission capacity powered by 1.2GHz downstream and 204 MHz upstream frequency.

The new amplifiers, the AC3010 and AC3210, combine 1.2GHz downstream frequency with advanced intelligent features and automatic adjustments, says Teleste. The AC3010 has one active output whereas the AC3210 has two.

The AC3010 and AC3210 allow operators to configure their own Red Button – a feature of Teleste’s access products that enables performing a set of adjustments by clicking the button. The company has now extended this feature by making it possible to decide in advance specifically which adjustments should be performed when the button is clicked – a feature that offers more flexibility in operations than before, it says.

Also at ANGA COM, Teleste’s technology director for passives and indoor products, Keith Mothersdale will deliver a presentation on Evolution towards a Converged Network Management Infrastructure on Thursday, June 9 in conference centre Room B, from 10.00-11-15.
