FAQs - Preguntas frecuentes

What needs to be done to start making splices again?
Sometimes I’m having problems when splicing fibers


THE EXPERT SAYS

One of the possible causes of failures when splicing is the lack of calibration of the splicer with the type of fibre that is being used with.

The way to fix this is easily resolved by making a periodic calibration of the equipment. Calibration of the splicer is done directly through the splicer’s main menu. There are several videos available in Televes’ youtube channel to learn how to do this. Use the QR code provided to access them

HDI technology for Multi Layer Boards (MLB)


The methods and processes for manufacturing printed circuit boards (PCBs) have evolved considerably since its invention in 1936. The rapid pace towards miniaturization leads PCB designers to increase the density of integration. This trend requires manufacturers like Televes to look closely at the methods and processes to evolve in parallel with the technology.

That is the case of multilayer technology.  MLB is the stacking of different layers of printed circuit sheets which are bonded by organic material. The difficulty of this technology is not the number of stacked layers, but the diameters of drilling and track widths that are necessary; they require absolute precision and control in the production processes.

The need to communicate between layers has increased dramatically. The space available for tracks has decreased, so the use of blind and buried pathways (HDI) has become a standard technology of the MLB.

Currently, the Televes product that is most demanding, in regards to the complexity of the PCBs utilized, is the T.0X Encoder. It is comprised of two multilayers groups; one made of 6 layers and another of 4 layers. If forces Televes to squeeze the best performance out of our facilities to successfully solder blind and buried paths of as little as 0.2 microns and crowns of 0.4 microns, as well as connecting inner tracks of 70 microns.

The product demands such level of detailed quality in the design of the componentry because it is mainly used by content operators, in such demanding markets as the USA, to provide distributed HD content to millions of users

Formacion 

Using antiLTE filters

Changes needed to accomodate the new Digital Dividend not only need  to be related with frequency migration but with the necessity to protect facilities from LTE/4G interference signals.


Mobile operators, both national and overseas and current LTE deployment trials identify two different conditions which may cause interferences:

1. HEAD/END EQUIPMENT AFFECTED BY MOBILE TRANSMITTERS (BTS). Or in other words, being affected by the downlink. Equipment  updated to the latest frequency plan (C21-C59) or anti-LTE filters shall be used to protect against these signals.

2. INTERFERENCES ON DVB-T EQUIPMENT CUASE BY MOBILE TERMINALS (Or being affected by the uplink). Improve the shielding in the coaxial cable, connectorization and/or use of anti-LTE filters.

Filters are the main characters in this Digital Dividend, whether if it’s the headend that is being affected or not. In fact, one usual applications of these filters is to adapt the coaxial network to the new operational frequencies.

We can classify the filter’s applications or use in:

Prevention: Previous to  harmful signals, carried on at the same time at the Headend’s frequencies migration.

Mitigacion: Where it is already an interference affecting the installation.

Adaptation de la red de TV a los nuevos requisitos: el filtro limita la banda de TV a las nuevas frecuencias establecidas.

Having in mind that we need these filters for more than to eliminate interferences, their features, particularly in the case of H/Es affected by BTS, shall be precise enough not to modify the TV frequency band.  This accuracy needs also not to be affected by environmental conditions.

Choosing the filter

When choosing a filter, we need to evaluate up to 3 different criteria: location, DTT frequencies and degree of affectation due to present LTE signals.

Location: depending on the type of H/E used, the filter shall be installed in the mast, at the amplifier or in every user outlet. The installer shall identify which elements need to be protected against LTE.

Frequency bands: When possible, it is recommended to use filter with the lowest frequency cut off to maintain LTE interferences away.

Degree of affectation: he important key here is the signal strenght different between DTT and LTE signals. The more similar they are, the more rejection we will need. If the difference is bigger than 10 dB, rejection shouldn’t be as determinant.

The cheating filtering graphs

It seems reasonable to think that the frequency response is the key feature of a filter. It even seems reasonable to think that rejection is also a primordial fact.

But we should think twice since, although rejection is quite important, its relevance will highly depend on the interferent signal. In other words, it’s worthless to use a 50dB rejetion filter in the uplink band if the interfering signals depend on other circumstances, such as not being generated from a BTS or that the entry point of the unwanted signal is not at the headend.  Filters for H/E equipment are designed to eliminate interferences from the Downlink and leave its operating band as intact as possible.

Televes’  LTE filters offer a whole range of possibilities: variable rejection at channels 58, 59 or 60. From high stability microcavities filters to LC filter for those less exigent scenarios

Using our Televes’ guide “Filters to prevent and mitigate LTE effects”, installers will ensure a sucessful solution for any installation

Sabía que ... Televes collaborates so university students can communicate with ISS austronauts?

The digital TV system installed in the ISS allow to add video to the existing audio link with university students of Facultade de Ciencias e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova Lisboa.

The portuguese tracking station is located in this University, and it’s one of the six stations ready to transmit/receive this kind of transmissions.

D-ATV transmission is coded on MPEG2; Televes facilitated the conditions to transmit TV signals, contributing in this manner in a huge a technical and scientific advance in the communications with ISS

Low Power WiFi solution for hotels


One of the key services for hotels is to provide internet access through WiFi.

Ocasionally, lack of this service is negatively evaluated by customers. On the other hand, exposure to continuous WiFi signal radiation is becoming increasingly forbidden in many countries and areas. It would appear that the choice between offering WiFi hotspots and preventing guests from related damages reaches a dead-end.

 

Televes’ Coaxdata gateway provides a WiFi hotspot with configurable signal strength. Thus, every guest will have their own WiFi hotspot, away from other points in the facility
