U 159: Ultra-dense IP to QAM modulation
IP to QAM modulation
Based on the U 100 head-end series, the U 159-x IP to QAM module offers ultra-dense QAM modulation for cable TV networks with sophisticated features. The unique architecture of the U 100 head-end series enables highest density with highest reliability for professional technical environments.
