When all-new Ethiopian Broadcaster ‘Oromia Broadcast Network’ came to choose a solution for their portable microwave link requirement, it was Cogent’s popular Cogent Link-2HD which became the product of choice. Pictured during on-site commissioning in August 2018, Oromia’s systems feature optional video re-muxing and support HD video using advanced DVB-T2 and -S2 modulation techniques, giving the customer an ideal platform for both demanding link paths and future higher capacity demands.
The systems are configured for 1+1 redundancy and are fully ruggedised to meet the challenging environmental conditions encountered in Ethiopia. As with all of Cogent’s microwave product line, the CogentLink-2HD can be upgraded with H.265 compression for UHD (4K) video traffic whenever required.
