Genesis completes mBond trial delivering IPTV services over copper with Asian operator

mBond™ – “licence to thrill” IPTV service providers

Coventry, UK – 13 June 2014 – Genesis Technical Systems to showcase solutions to tackle the rising demand for IPTV at CommunicAsia 2014 following operator sign off on mBond trial to deliver IPTV services over copper.

Communications Service Providers looking for a new and exciting backhaul infrastructure solution – needed urgently to cope with rising demand for IPTV across Asia – have a unique new option thanks to UK based Genesis Technical Systems. Genesis, through its unique bonded copper solution, mBond™ is now able to support the strains placed on bandwidth allowance by IPTV amongst other internet applications.

Industry forecasts show that IPTV continues to be one of the areas of major growth. A recent industry report from Digital TV World predicts that globally IPTV revenues will climb to $26.1 billion in 2020, up from $16 billion in 2013. Asia figures signal this strongly, as the region is consuming more and more bandwidth for IPTV alone exemplified by 2013 Q4 figures published by Point Topic. Point Topic’s report shows that Asia has experienced one of the largest annual increases geographically, with East Asia’s number of IPTV subscribers undergoing a 24% annual increase, and the rest of Asia increasing even more rapidly at 29%.

Genesis Technical Systems will address these bandwidth issues at CommunicAsia, where its team of industry experts will showcase how its bonded copper solution, mBond can support the market during this integral period of growth throughout Asia.

mBond, Genesis’s unique bonding solution, can be deployed in areas of Asia where fibre roll-out is problematic, whilst still providing fibre-like speeds. During recent Asia-based trials mBond achieved successful delivery of 100 Mb/s over four pairs consistently, meaning that operators who install the solution can provide converged IPTV and internet services over their existing copper infrastructure to an SME (small and medium sized enterprise) or SOHO (small or home office). Previously mBond has demonstrated an ability to deliver over 150 Mb/s over 12 pairs at distances of 1.5km – demonstrating that the solution can service larger multi-national corporations that utilise high bandwidth applications such as video-conferencing as well – demonstrating its versatile capabilities.

Nigel Hall, CEO, at Genesis, commented: “Parts of Asia are markets that thrive on using a largely copper-based infrastructure, making them key places for us to focus on when considering how mBond can be utilised; we are excited by the prospects here, and can’t wait to discuss the demands of IPTV head-on during this year’s CommunicAsia show, and how we can solve the bandwidth bottleneck for operators!”

mBond, Genesis Technical System’s unique superfast bonding solution will be at the forefront of Genesis Technical System’s activity at CommunicAsia in Singapore (17-20 June 2014).
