2wcom announced that it has delivered more than 500 MM01 AoIP codecs and 120 FlexMon FM02 FM demodulators to Swedish transmission provider Teracom for audio signal encoding and demodulation of its nationwide FM network.
Teracom specializes in radio and television broadcasting, transmission capacity for data connections, colocation and services. The company manages the country’s terrestrial digital broadcasts, which covers 99.8 percent of the population.
Sara Lundkvist, Teracom’s FM radio technical specialist, says the company opted for 2wcom’s MM01 solution because it was the only codec on the market able to meet its rigorous standards and to ensure high quality radio transmissions.
“After in-depth study of available products on the market, we chose the 2wcom MM01,” said Lundkvist. “The MM01 offers a flexible, all in one encoder and decoder solution with redundancy and monitoring functions, and it fits our requirements perfectly.”
Teracom needed a versatile multi-role solution for AoIP contribution and distribution that offered high quality audio along with state of the art security. The MM01 provides just that: low latency via PCM, transparent mode as a software option, transmission without delay and a 192 kHz sample rate for MPX. It also features dual streaming and Pro MPEG FEC.
In addition, the MM01 provides users with advanced redundancy capability and monitoring functions along with the ability to integrate into diverse infrastructures. MM01’s audio synchronization, delivered to microsecond accuracy, also makes it suitable for applications where precise timing is essential, such as SFN FM networks.
“We are pleased that Teracom is relying on our technology and incorporating the MM01 in such an important project in Sweden, said Werner Drews, managing director of 2wcom. “We look forward to pursuing our cooperation with them in the future.”
