The Belgium service provider Norkring and Paneda have signed an agreement for DAB+ head end systems. Paneda will provide DAB+ multiplexer systems to Belgium during the next 5 years. At the same time Norkring has ordered a complete system for an upcoming multiplexer.
This system will include multiplexers and encoders in full redundancy and includes a support contract valid for 5 years.
The system will be provided as a turn key solution realized in a dedicated server platform using VMware and capable to hosting a great number of independent multiplexer systems with its audio encoders and content management system. With the unique handling of virtual service providers in the system, each broadcaster can be granted access to its own web-based user interface and can handle and manage the system independently from each other.
Ludo Palmans, Operations Manager Norkring Belgium says: “After evaluating different system solutions, we have found that Paneda, with its modern solution and with the right set of functionalities, suits us best. We look forward to working with Paneda as partner to focus on DAB+ in Belgium.”
Lars-Peder Lundgren, Sales Manager at Paneda says: “We are very satisfied to have agreed on this long-term contract with Norkring Belgium, and we are pleased to once again have an agreement with a premium reference user”
