CONWAY, SC / CRWEPRESSRELEASE / August 20, 2015 / 4Cable TV International, Inc. (OTCMKTS: CATV) (“4Cable” and/or the “Company”), a global manufacturer of outdoor equipment for cable and broadband transmission providers, is pleased to announce that it has developed a method for modifying a cable television amplifier’s Automatic Gain Control (AGC) from an analog channel to a QAM digital channel.
We have received a pilot order from a top-tier MSO to modify equipment to this new configuration.
This configuration is important because it frees up bandwidth for the cable companies to use in their ever expanding digital bandwidth (Internet) offerings.
The Top 10 MSOs have an estimated 40 million (estimated 120 million dollar market) Analog style AGC units in operation all of which will need to be changed to QAM digital operation in the next 5 years. The company expects to get a significant portion of this business. It will also make the parts that it manufactures to do the conversation, available to other companies that do similar work, but do not have manufacturing facilities.
“This is an exciting time for Cable Television with DOCSIS 3.0 being deployed rapidly and 3.1 on the horizon, allowing cable Television Internet operators to offer faster speeds of up to 1 Gigabit,” said Steve Richey, President of 4Cable. “Our QAM digital upgrade will help operators achieve that goal by reclaiming and reusing existing bandwidth.”
