Reducing operating costs | Rohde & Schwarz

Reducing operating costs

Reducing operating costs is and will remain one of the primary challenges for network operators. Rising costs for energy and personnel make this challenge even tougher for them. But this challenge fuels the engineering creativity of Rohde & Schwarz. Transmitter solutions from Rohde & Schwarz keep operating costs to a minimum. Rohde & Schwarz systems offer unique innovations that meet the challenges of network operators by combining high energy efficiency and high availability with low service and maintenance and low space requirements.

Channel Clearance | Rohde & Schwarz

Channel clearance and new transmission standards

In many regions of the world, spectrum clearance and channel repack programs are either currently taking place or waiting to be implemented. The transition to new transmission standards will allow more efficient use of bandwidth and spectrum and make it possible to offer enhanced services. In these times of change, network operators need suitable strategies that allow them to keep providing today’s services without disruptions while preparing a seamless switchover to tomorrow’s services. Rohde & Schwarz transmitter solutions are designed to support network operators in demanding transition phases by providing channel agility, future-ready signal processing and adaptive operation features.

Mobile TV | Rohde & Schwarz

5G Broadcast

In the past few decades, incredible innovations has taken place in TV transmission. It has evolved from analog transmission to digital broadcasting to satellite delivery with hundreds of channels. TV is now ready for the next challenge: reaching out to billions of smartphones via 5G. LTE/5G broadcast, a technology once associated with mobile connectivity, can transform digital TV into mobile TV. This idea has been around ever since LTE appeared. But it was recently enhanced in 3GPP Release 14 to make delivering mobile TV over the HPHT based networks a reality, effectively addressing the needs of broadcasters, mobile network operators, content providers and end users. At Rohde & Schwarz, we call it FeMBMS, and we are ready to support your mobile TV delivery in the 5G era. The Rohde & Schwarz vision already meets most 5G requirements and is expected to meet them all as it evolves – in compliance with 3GPP Release 16 and beyond.

One World Trade Center: Broadcasting is back with Rohde & Schwarz

One World Trade Center: Broadcasting is back with Rohde & Schwarz

One World Trade Center is the tallest building in New York City and the most prestigious address for broadcasters in the United States of America. Six out of seven national broadcasters, such as WPXN (ION Media), WNET (PBS), and WWOR (FOX), have chosen to deploy the R&S®THU9evo for their primary broadcasts from One World Trade Center in New York City, but WNJU was the first station to move in.

Rohde und Schwarz - your US repack specialist

Rohde & Schwarz – your US repack specialist

In 2012, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was tasked with repacking the licensed broadcast spectrum to make room for wireless broadband. Now, with auctioning of the spectrum complete, the FCC estimates about 1,200 stations will be affected by the clearing of 84MHz of spectrum – and each of those stations will have a little more than three years to transition to their new channel assignments.

Experts from Rohde & Schwarz are ready to help you plan ahead for the process, keep your transition on track, and turn a longterm investment in RF equipment into new revenue streams for your station.
