The TDcH compact headend is now easily upgraded to support IP-In and SNMP monitoring via a new software licence (2.4.0). The software update also activates LED status displays at the inputs and outputs. The new version is available immediately and can be installed on all current and previous models.

The TRIAX compact headend was successfully launched two years ago. A future-proof platform, it offers flexibility, with a range of features that can be individually upgraded to meet changing requirements. As experts in headend technology, TRIAX customers can be assured each and every TRIAX headend guarantees the same quality TRIAX experience.

Diemar Rauch, Group Product Manager, says, “With the latest IP-In function, IPTV signals can now also be fed in and distributed via coaxial or ethernet networks. A typical application in the hospitality environment is the integration of IPTV services, which can be offered to guests as a programme expansion. In-house programmes with local offers can also be realised in this way and simply fed into the headend.”

The optional SNMP (Single Network Management Protocol) monitoring activates the function in the compact headend and sends status changes via SNMP traps to SNMP – supporting monitoring software. This enables continuous monitoring, status queries and signalling even via remote networks.

The TDcH has been built on the TRIAX Headend Platform, which offers the full range of signal modulation options from satellite, terrestrial, cable, and now includes IP signals into QAM, COFDM or IP. For subscription TV projects, a version with eight CI slots is also available.

With its compact design, the TDcH can be installed in any 19in rack, and can also be wall mounted. Each headend is tested according to strict specifications and is delivered to the customer ready for configuration. Each TRIAX headend system can be set up and monitored via the browser-based management tool. To help deliver the best customer experience, TRIAX skilled team of support engineers are available to provide outstanding service for any installation requests. Regular updates and enhancements are planned for the platform.
