The SCTE™(Society for Broadband Professionals) confirmed the winners of its prestigious 2018 Technological Innovation awards at its Gala Annual Awards Dinner on 2 June 2018 in London. The competition honours innovative products, systems and concepts in the broadband industry. Out of the three award categories, Technetix is delighted to have won in two of the product categories, while being shortlisted in the third.
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. Fibre is often utilised but driving it deeper into the network means waiting longer for civic permits and higher costs - Virtual Segmentation solves this. This technology is currently being trialled by major 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.
“I am delighted that the innovations developed and brought to the market by Technetix have been recognised by the industry,” said Paul Broadhurst, Chief Executive Officer, Technetix Group Ltd. “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 SegmentationTM solution and the EZ-Amp at ANGA this year, along with their shortlisted DBx with Remote PHY platform. This solution retro fits to the very successful modular DBx platform, extensively installed in the field giving the most compact, lowest power Remote PHY node in the industry.
