#1

KOLKATA:Assam based multi- system operator(MSO),Axom
Communications and Cable,which
already boasts of around six lakh
cable TV connections in the
state including the lower
and central parts,is aiming to
spruce up its digitisation drive.
By the end of the phase IV of digitisation, it
aims to install one million set top boxes (STBs)
not only in Assam but also in other states of
the north-eastern region.
Axom Communications and Cable director
Sanjive Narain says that the MSO has already
installed the digital headend in the year 2009
and has laid down the fiber connectivity
linking around 250 kms from three sides of
Guwahati, the commercial hub of Assam. The
setup of the digital headend was supported by
Cisco, from whom Axom would be purchasing
STBs as well.
“We aim to have a million boxes seeded by the
end of 2015. We have around 10 analogue
headends and one digital headend,” he says.
According to sources, the MSO had spent Rs 3
crore for installing the digital headend.
Out of 6 lakh connections, more than 70,000
cable homes have been converted into digital
mainly in Guwahati, even before the
digitisation process has started in the state.
The seven sisters come under phase III and IV
of digitisation. “Right now the process has not
started in the true sense but the industry is
getting ready,” adds Narain. He expects the
current deadline of December 2014 to be
extended as well. This could be because the
government is addressing the loopholes
witnessed in phases I and II. http://www.indiantelevision.com/technolo...-ne-140811
