The Technetix Virtual Segmentation solution was the winner in the Best Digital Processing Solution category. This technology provides extra capacity on existing coaxial cable to feed a Remote PHY device without deploying fibre to the new segmentation site. Fibre deep, node split, or distributed architectures can be used to segment networks into smaller service groups, according to Technetix. Fibre is often utilised but driving it deeper into the network means waiting longer for civic permits and higher costs and Technetix says that virtual segmentation solves this. This technology is currently being trialled by European broadband operators.
Technetix was also awarded the Best CPE Solution for the EZ-Amp range of auto-adaptive band split amplifiers. The EZ-Amp features automatically switchable diplex filters that enable a ‘no touch’ upstream upgrade in the home. When upgrading legacy 65/85 MHz products to 204/258 MHz products today, Technetix enables users to prepare the home install to auto switch the upstream needed for DOCSIS 3.1. Every EZ-Amp eliminates the truck roll needed to upgrade the band-split for DOCSIS 3.1, according to the company.
”I am delighted that the innovations developed and brought to the market by Technetix have been recognised by the industry,” said Paul Broadhurst, CEO, Technetix. “They both mitigate capex and are industry game changers which we look forward to introducing to a wider audience in the coming months.”
Technetix will showcase both the Virtual Segmentation solution and the EZ-Amp at ANGA COM this year, along with their shortlisted DBx with Remote PHY platform. This solution retrofits to the modular DBx platform. Visit our stand in Hall
