Chengdu MSO Deploys Entropic Communications' c.LINK(R) entry engineering to provide Robust movement [2012-03-22]

BEIJING, Mar 20, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- CHINA CONTENT BROADCASTING NETWORK EXPO -- Entropic Communications, a number one supplier of silicon and software solutions to enable connected home entertainment, announced these days that the Company's c.LINK(R) Broadband Access silicon has been deployed by Chengdu MSO for delivering strong broadband service to subscribers over the Chengdu MSO network. The deployment is created doable through: GD.LINK, an Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) platform made by Guangda, a highly-recognized access equipment supplier, to deliver video and broadband services that co-exist on one coax infrastructure for multi-dwelling units (MDUs) throughout the Chengdu, Sichaun region of China.

Chengdu MSO and Guangda selected Entropic's c.LINK Broadband Access technology for its ability to enable price effective bi-directional services on the present coax, robust quality of service (QoS) for triple play services, scalable bandwidth management for every shopper within the network, support for multiple channels on the one coax to handle increasing bandwidth demand, and low latency for supporting web Protocol (IP) video. Through this technology, Chengdu MSO is currently ready to supply strong and reliable broadband access and IP video on demand (VOD) programs to its existing TV subscribers as a part of a bundled package which will enable for increased revenues per household, whereas keeping deployment prices low.

Entropic's c.LINK Broadband Access technology, based mostly on its widely deployed MoCA(R) (Multimedia over Coax) one.1 silicon has been enabling strong and reliable broadband services within the China EoC marketplace for the last 3 years. a perfect technology to handle the China EoC market, Entropic's c.LINK could be a High radio frequency (RF) implementation, creating it a solid resolution for cable operators who decide to upgrade their networks for bi-directional communication because it will coexist with different services on identical coaxial cable. The c.LINK Broadband Access technology could be a cost-competitive resolution for operators because it will support increasing bandwidth demands with a lot of channels and provides support for all IP-based applications, like IPTV, voice over IP (VoIP) and net traffic, among others, whereas supporting superior latency and QoS performance attributes.

"We adopted an EoC technology deployment with Entropic and Guangda as they offered a mature, stable resolution based mostly on the field-proven MoCA customary," said Mr. Qin XueChao, vice general manager, Sichuan Cable tv Network Co Ltd, Chengdu Branch. "Since starting deployment activities in 2009, we've got designed a high performance, low latency, bandwidth-rich access network for the delivery of next-generation, high-resolution IP video and multimedia content."

"Working with Entropic, we have a tendency to were ready to deliver a High RF implementation, providing bigger service robustness and guaranteed throughput compared to different access technologies," said Mr. Kang YongHuai, chairman and CEO, Guangda. "Further, the High RF feature allows co-existence with legacy DOCSIS-based or video services residing on the coax -- that allows service suppliers, like Chengdu MSO bigger service capabilities."

"Our c.LINK Broadband Access resolution together with Guangda's GD.LINK product has delivered a serious service breakthrough for Chengdu MSO, letting broadband service to be delivered to MDU's where there's solely a cable broadband infrastructure," said Tom Luan, vp and general manager, China and Hong Kong operations, Entropic Communications. "We are committed to enabling more enhancements for the native China connected home market and acknowledge operating with partners like Guangda to increase our c.LINK platform disclose new opportunities across the entertainment value-chain."

Entropic's c.LINK Broadband Access resolution is scalable with one network controller supporting up to sixty three shoppers, with rate management out there on a per shopper basis. By operating on top of the regular CATV signals and providing frequency agility between 800 MHz and 1500 MHz, extra network controllers may be added to support even a lot of shoppers to the network. additionally, delivering operator-class robustness and unmatched bandwidth over the longest reach, Entropic's Broadband Access resolution represents the trade performance benchmark.
