The newly founded company InCoax AB in Gävle, Sweden has developed a technical solution which makes it possible to transmit Gigabit data rates over existing TV-coax cables. The company’s newly developed product uses this neglected infrastructure, with fast deployment at a fraction of the cost compared to new cabling or Fiber in the building.
The InCoax platform makes it possible for the operator to deliver high-speed services, as IPTV, VoIP and fast Internet access, directly to the entertainment hub of the subscriber’s home or a Hotel room. Further more, the solution may also bring a solution to the existing problem of back haul for indoor wireless infrastructure. Today, our residential homes are littered with WIFI 802.11g systems capable of providing +50Mbps over the air but since they most often are connected to slow ADSL lines the maximum throughput is at the best still less than ~10Mbps. The InCoax platform may be a solution to that problem.
The product has been developed by the Gävle based IT company GetItSafe (former Service Factory AB) at the Radio Center Gävle.
