Club DAB Italia Rolls Out SFN DAB Network

News Image
Italian network operator Club DAB Italia has established the country's nationwide DAB service through a collaboration with 2wcom's FlexNsert+ and FlexXtract+. 2wcom technology was deployed to allow the DAB network to be fed with an ETI stream and distributed.

Club Italia previously used a limited network of radio links, but decided to instal technology from 2wcom including FlexNsert+ encoders, providing the ETI to ASI conversion and FlexXtract+ receivers with ETI and EDI output.
Fabrizio Guidi, Club DAB Italia's President, commented: "The system delivered by 2wcom made it possible for us to have a rapid and successful roll-out of our national network – one of the largest SFN DAB networks in Europe, currently covering over 3,000 km of highways and major roads in Italy, and reaching more than 50% of the population."
The FlexNsert+ DAB+ Distribution Inserter receives a DAB ETI data stream (according to EN 300799) or a DAB EDI data stream (according to TS 102 693). The FlexNsert+ DAB+ converts the data stream into a standard MPEG2-TS-signal and outputs it via its transport stream interfaces. Additionally the FlexNsert+ may act as timestamp inserter for SFN Networks. The generation of timestamps within the MPEG-stream is basis for a synchronised transmission at transmitter sites. The FlexXtract+ DAB+ Distribution Extractor demodulates a data stream (2048 kbps) from a DVB-S or DVB-S2 signal and converts the data into a standard ETI-signal according to (EN 300799) or EDI-signal according to (TS 102 693) to feed DAB or DAB+ transmitters.
"We chose the 2wcom system because it allowed us to build a simple, reliable and cost-effective distribution chain for a fast-growing network," said Hanns Wolter, technical manager for the project.
"Although this was a technical first, implementation proved to be extremely fast and we were up and running within days of delivery. Over time we have been able to appreciate the reliability of the units and the excellent customer support from 2wcom."
