[Via Satellite 10-07-2014] Italian network operator Club DAB Italia has rolled out the country’s nationwide Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) service in partnership with 2wcom’s FlexNsert+ and FlexXtract+. The 2wcom technology was deployed to allow the DAB network to be fed with an Ensemble Transport Interface (ETI) stream and distributed over a large geographical area via satellite.
Before using satellite distribution Club DAB Italia relied only on a limited network of radio links, which would not have been adequate for the speedy development of a national DAB network. To provide a better distribution infrastructure, the company installed technology from 2wcom including FlexNsert+ encoders providing the ETI to Asynchronous Serial Interface (ASI) conversion, and FlexXtract+ receivers with ETI and Electronic Data Interface (EDI) output.
