NETWORK OPERATION CENTERS By reducing footprint, power, and heat, a major video longhaul carrier expanded bandwidth in their NOC without expanding facilities - and realized 60% savings in transport costs using our Dynamic Bandwidth Concentration to consolidate multiple network transports. INTERACTIVE DISTANCE LEARNING Iowa Communications Network deployed over 400 nodes to unify its voice, video, and data services across their 3000-mile statewide network - carrying HDTV, interactive classroom video, voice, & 10/100bT over a single SONET backhaul. CATV A national US space center deploys the TW-400 as a CATV head-end device, multiplexing dozens of channels for video sur- veillance and instructional television. VIDEO TRANSPORT FOR CNN & NBC A regional MSO chose the TW-400 for its reliability in transport- ing national broadcast services. Additional value was supplied from bandwidth consolidation that enables up to 400% more useable bandwidth over existing network pipes.

  4. 4. Integrated Video Options Video Encode / Transcode Options download data sheet specifications at C O N V E R G E N C E 1 UNIVERSAL VIDEO ADAPTATION, ENCODING & TRANSCODING Our family of video modules can solve any encoding challenge. Each video module features automatic calibration/setup, multiple video and audio ports, and a logical range of encoding and decoding options. For example, the VAU module pro-NTSC / PAL vides real-time MPEG-2 encoding / decoding of NTSC, PAL, or SDI signals. Fully compatible with industry standards, itS-VIDEO, MPEG-2 also encapsulates (or deconstructs) the signal into either DVB-ASI or IP streams for transport. Choose the VSIM module to process dual streams of composite video, SDI, or Mezzanine HDTV at 270Mbps inbound/out- bound without compression or data loss. Compliant with SDI, SDTI, and DVB-ASI, you can use this VSIM in conjunction with our SMPTE 310 module to provide integrated DVB-ASI to DVB-SSI (SMPTE 310) conversion. CENTRALIZED, POINT-&-CLICK MANAGEMENT Using the TMS management system, you remotely provision video adaptation parameters such as compression rates and encapsulation methods, control allocation of bandwidth and modify quality-of-service levels. All signals are observable in270Mbps the digital domain, and calibration items like color burst frequency or composite luminance / chromanance levels can beHDTV / SDTV controlled remotely using the web-based user interface.SMPTE 310DVB / ASIVideo over IP

Integrated Transpor t Options download specifications for each module at Versatility . . . copper, fiber, or microwave C O N V E R G E N C E 2 Regardless of your current transport and network environment, we will gladly come to your studio and demo the TW-400 using any video feed and network transport you’re using today - or want to use tomorrow!.DS3 uWave/ IP Standards-based network modules assure plug-&-play compatibility and feature automatic setup and synchro- nization with any ATM, IP, or SONET network ADM In addition, our long-reach 1550nm optics lets you reach network nodes up to 75km away. You can also choose to deploy either point-to-point topologies or point-to-mul- tipoint to gain aggregation and concentration of service from several sites to maximize bandwidth utilization. For example, using the DS-3 network module with the SMPTE 310 SIM coupled with the VSIM, you can simul- taneously transport both HDTV compressed and SDTV streams, as well as Ethernet data and TDM traffic (T1)OC3 / OC12 SONET over a single DS-3 circuit. DS3 COAX Since many local affiliates use uWave for their Studio-to-Transmitter (STL) link, we provide direct coax con- nectivity to support your legacy transport investments. ATM Widely known as the transport-of-choice for multi-service traffic, ATM provides the Quality-of-Service guaran-OC3c / OC12c ATM tees and efficient bandwidth utilization that lowers operating costs while assuring mission-critical service levels for all your demanding video applications. SONET / SDH As the dominant transport medium throughout the world, compatibility with SONET/SDH ADMs is mandatory. Out standards-based compatibility lets you achieve plug-&-play access to any ADM tributary anywhere. IP . . . TWO OPTIONSDVB/ASI If you wish to access a pure IP network, the Ethernet port provided on every transport module will tie directly to Ethernet edge routers. Optionally, Video-over-IP can be encoded over traditional SONET or ATM backhauls and then groomed out to the IP switch at the Central Office. DVB/ASI . . . AVOIDING THE TARIFF TAX While network surcharges and tariffs apply to any traditional nationwide data transport, current FCC regula- tions will enable tariff-free transport of data services using DVB/ASI channels. Our SMPTE-310 moduleVideo / IP enables such DVB/ASI transport to reduce your payments to network carriers.

Terawave will gladly provide consultationized EMS console for single-point to help architect this comprehensive networking solution to significantly reduce your capital costs andmanagement over ALL your band- deliver centralized management over all your bandwidth applications.width services and transports Native Service Ports Standardized voice and data ports are plug-compatible to eliminate the added cost of auxiliary routers, IADs and channel banks. While minimizing CAPEX, it also enables unified, web-based management of QOS service level agreements, rate-explicit bandwidth allocation, and remote activation of service ports. FXS VOICE FXS VOICE Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) is provided using this plug-in module. Eight voice lines per card let you provision either in-house intercomms - just plug a phone jack into the FXS module - or public phone service via a carrier’s Central Office. 10/100BT LAN A single Ethernet port is always provided via any of our transport modules. Additionally, four 10/100bT ports can be added using the ESIM module to extend your office’s local area network to the transmitter shack, the remote truck, any remote event venue, or post-production suite.10/100bT LAN VLAN / TLS Carrier grade reliability with advanced DiffServ and MPLS support with Layer 2 filtering and VLAN Tag Stacking means you can implement a world-wide, highly secure private LAN service from any office or remote site. TELEMETRY & SERIAL DATA We offer three telemetry modules for both low and high bit-rates. Appropriate for broadcast control data, test range monitoring / mission control, and remote facilities operation, these modules provide an importantTELEMETRY option for transmitter, studio, and scientific or military applications.SIMPLIFYING BANDWIDTH SERVICES & MANAGEMENTA n i n t e g r a t e d s o l u t i o n t o a l l y o u r b a n d w i d t h m a n a g e m e n t n e e d s - Vo i c e , V i d e o , & D a t a
