Gehua Cable picks BigBand Networks’ edge QAM platform
Beijing Gehua Cable TV Network (Gehua Cable) is using BigBand Networks’ edge QAM BEQ platform to deliver new interactive HDTV offerings and a broadband Internet service.
Gehua Cable operates the broadcasting and cable TV network, as well as reception and transmission of broadcasting and cable TV programs within the Beijing municipal area. The large-scale cable network covers all 18 districts and transmits more than 100 channels to 3.2 million people.
“We are delighted that Gehua Cable has expanded our relationship and selected the BigBand BEQ platform,” said David Heard, chief operating officer of BigBand Networks. “BigBand continues to lead the market in QAMs, and now we’re bringing this industry-leading platform to China to support new services like interactive HDTV.”
Gehua Cable is a repeat customer for BigBand. In addition to the BEQ, Gehua Cable has also deployed BigBand’s Broadband Multimedia-Service Router (BMR). In October of 2008, Gehua Cable provided coverage of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics Games using BigBand’s BMR.
