— Sweden’s Transmode, a supplier of packet-optical networking solutions, says its new Mobile Fronthaul solution aids those wireless carriers that are rolling out cloud-RAN (C-RAN) architectures. C-RAN involves moving some parts of the radio network control function from being colocated with the antenna at the cellsite to locations deeper in the network. According to Transmode, this introduces a new transmission network into the overall mobile network infrastructure – Mobile Fronthaul – carrying the CPRI protocol between the antenna and these locations. The product includes two alternative TM-Series-based active options for protected CPRI low-latency transport – one using transparent transponders and another providing additional management and FEC capabilities plus a TG-Series-based passive WDM option that also offers network protection.
— Beginning April 29, Swisscom TV plus customers will be able to access and watch recorded video on their smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs when they are outside of their home areas. Subscribers will be able to access their DVR recordings from the last 30 days via WLAN; they do need to download the Swisscom TV app for the iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones or Swisscom TV online for computers. Subs also can use the app to power their smartphones as programming guides, allowing them to search for TV shows that have been aired in the past 30 hours in addition to those scheduled for a future date.
— The Cox TV Connect app now supports Amazon‘s Kindle Fire, Google‘s Nexus, and Samsung‘s Galaxy Tab 2 and Note tablets. The app also creates a “second-screen” experience that allows for TVEverywhere in the home.
