Advantech Wireless announced that the Transcend 800 line of point-to-point microwave radios has received full certification from the Brazilian agency of telecommunications, Anatel. These microwave radios have built-in Asynchronous Serial Interfaces (ASI), as well as IP routers. They connect the studio processing centers directly to the satellite broadcasting teleports, with high data rate, high bandwidth efficiency, and in a cost-effective way.

According to the company, the Transcend 800 line can be connected directly to the MPEG video encoders without employing expensive IP to ASI converters.

“Today’s video processing centers need to manage exponential growth in terms of data requirements. We need to add progressively more local content in addition to both national and international channels. Ultra-HD 4K content also demands much higher bandwidth. This calls for an efficient way to connect to the satellite DTH teleport, where the uplink and broadcasting will take place. Transcend 800 was specifically designed to accomplish that,” stated Cristi Damian, vice president of business development at Advantech Wireless Technologies.
