EoC update - Licence Key Activation and Private Network Zones

EoC update - Licence Key Activation and Private Network Zones

New features for TRIAX EoC

  • Licence key activation and private network zones added via software update

TRIAX EoC software 2.7 adds further professional networking features and increases the flexibility of our Ethernet over Coax platform.

It’s available now for all TRIAX EoC controllers.

Partners and customers can download the new software by logging in to My TRIAX on your local TRIAX website, then navigating to an EoC controller in the Products area.

Licence Key Activation

This software update makes it possible for selected EoC features to be enabled for a one-off licence fee.

As our EoC platform continues to expand with more and more features, not all of them will be of use to all customers.

That’s why we’re introducing this highly flexible, cost-effective means to manage precisely the features you need, on top of our competitively priced base system.

Private Network Zones

This update makes it possible to quickly and easily create individual SSIDs across your EoC WiFi network.

You now have the flexibility to create private, secure networks for each individual apartment or hotel room, irrespective of the number of WiFi end points on the network.

Configuration time is significantly reduced: it takes just half a day to set up 100 private network zones.

Private Network Zones is the first feature to be offered through our EoC licencing programme. To activate this feature or for more information, contact your local TRIAX representative.

EoC update – QoS and Bandwidth Management

New features for TRIAX EoC

Quality of Service and bandwidth management added via software update

Today we’re introducing TRIAX EoC software 2.6.1.r145, available for all TRIAX EoC controllers.

With QoS and extended bandwidth management functionality, the update adds even more professional networking features to our Ethernet over Coax solution, benefitting administrators and end users alike.

Partners and customers can download the new software by logging in My TRIAX on your local TRIAX website, then navigating to an EoC controller in the Products area.

Quality of Service (QoS)

Certain online activities are more dependent on a good, stable internet connection and high throughput in order to ensure a good user experience.

An example is Voice over IP (VoIP), where data needs to be transmitted in real-time with no delays.

By implementing QoS, VoIP – or associated applications like Zoom or Microsoft Teams – is treated as priority data, ensuring the best possible experience for end users given the overall bandwidth available.

Software 2.6.1.r145 introduces QoS traffic priority based on DSCP for all EoC devices.

Bandwidth management

TRIAX EoC already offers Dynamic Bandwidth Management (DBM), which automatically allocates the best available bandwidth to any given user depending on their usage requirements.

It allows the full capacity of your internet connection to be distributed most fairly, without compromising a minimum throughput at each end point and with no further administration required on your part.

Software 2.6.1.r145 now adds the possibility to manage bandwidth in the ‘classic’ sense – i.e. by specifying a maximum bandwidth capacity at each end point or end point group.

In some installations like hotels, this might be used as an opportunity for upselling extra throughput if the guest requires it.

Introducing the TRIAX Network Analyser

Free software for successful EoC projects and increased customer satisfaction

TRIAX Ethernet over Coax (EoC) is now even easier with the new TRIAX Network Analyser software, available as a complimentary download from today.

  • Optimal IP over coax: increase project success and customer satisfaction
  • Perform detailed pre-qualification and documentation of the coax network
  • No more surprises: address potential disturbances, identify need for filters before installation
  • Free software download from TRIAX
  • Free online training: sign up to one of our webinars below
  • TRIAX EoC: professional gigaspeed IP over coax

The details

An EoC Controller*, EoC Endpoint, a laptop and the TRIAX Network Analyser are all you need on-site to carry out either a full network analysis or strategic tests at selected points.

The tool displays any signal disturbances and the data capacity at a specific endpoint location.

Since EoC operates in the frequency range from 0-200 MHz, one of challenges could be that some TV services are positioned in this range.

TRIAX Network Analyser reveals this with disturbances in the given frequency range.

These are indicated with the blue line in this example screenshot, the spikes being analogue signals and the flatter peaks digital services.

Detailed documentation with data and screenshots can be produced, for future troubleshooting use or for peace of mind when handing a project over to your customer.

abba Suites Bilbao

TRIAX

WiFi & TV over the same cables

When Abba Hotels Group were planning to install both TV and Ethernet cables around their new 4-star apartment complex in Bilbao, TRIAX stepped in with EoC (Ethernet over Coax), enabling both TV and WiFi networks to run over the same cables.

Four months after the opening of the apartments, Abba Group reports that customers have shown great satisfaction with the WiFi and no complaints have been recorded.

“The result of the installation is very good, the WiFi signal is remarkable and the casting system is working well.”

— Damian Melero
Chief Information Officer, Abba Hotels Group

The challenge

Abba Hotels Group was expanding into Bilbao with 35 newly built 4-star holiday apartments. These had to be equipped with telecommunications services.

Their plans had been to make two separate installations: one with coax cable for TV, and another with copper cable (CAT 6) or optical fibre for the Internet.

The solution

TRIAX Spain presented the EoC solution to Abba’s IT Director Damian Melero, demonstrating the versatility of the product and the innovative G.hn Wave 2 technology that steers the network.

The possibility of combining the Internet service and the TV network, as well as being a totally passive system, attracted the interest of Mr Melero, who requested a live demonstration of the system.

“The installation of the End Points with WiFi has been very easy, each one takes only 15 minutes.”
Damian Melero, Chief Information Officer, Abba Hotels Group

The results

After the demonstration, the IT team of Abba Group were able to verify the system’s excellent characteristics, namely its high bandwidth, low latency, and reliable performance.

The demo concluded with Mr Melero saying, “it seems you have the solution for my request – let’s do it with real guests…”

Only one coax cable network was needed to be installed around abba Suites Bilbao, instantly reducing costs and environmental impact.

A TRIAX headend was installed to handle the TV distribution, and a single EoC Controller steered a network of 35 End Points.

These provided reliable WiFi to each apartment, which could then be equipped with casting devices, a service that is proving highly popular with guests.

Sudersand Resort

TRIAX

Better WiFi for holiday cottages

While outdoor WiFi access points across Sudersand Resort delivered a reliable service, the solid construction of the resort’s cottages prevented signals from reaching guests inside their accommodation.

To satisfy increasing demand for quality WiFi indoors, Sudersand needed a solution that could be installed with as little disruption as possible in time for the new holiday season.

TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax + WiFi) uses the TV cables already in place, resulting in:

  • Quick, cost-saving installation: no new cables needed
  • Maximum WiFi coverage: dedicated access point in each holiday cottage

“TRIAX EoC’s convenience and high performance make it an outstanding solution for campsites and holiday resorts.”

Chalet des Neiges apartments

TRIAX

Freedom to ski, freedom to surf

Les Arcs is a large ski resort in the French Alps divided into several areas. The highest, Les Arcs 2000, is home to La Cime des Arcs apartment hotel, one of Chalet des Neiges’ many tourist residences. With outstanding pistes and ski lifts climbing up to 3226m, Les Arcs is an ideal resort for enjoying winter sports as a couple, with friends, or as a family.

Faced with ongoing technological issues with the Wi-Fi around the tourist residence, and beginning to lose guests as a result, Chalet des Neiges turned to TRIAX and their innovative Ethernet over Coax + WiFi hospitality solution:

  • Fast and reliable Wi-Fi coverage with 80 End Points
  • 1 Gbps network on existing coax cables
  • Quick installation, no disruption and minimal cost
  • Full coverage: no more Wi-Fi blackspots
  • More satisfied guests and an increase in reservations

Chalet des Neiges tourist residences
Chalet des Neiges consists of five 4-star and two 5-star residences established in different ski resorts: Val Thorens (3 Vallées ski area), Oz en Oisans (Alpes d’Huez) and Arc 2000 (Paradiski). The residences are carefully maintained and an annual work programme is established to offer high quality apartments for some out of season stays and holidays every year.
www.chaletdesneiges.com

“We now have TRIAX’s EoC solution installed in ‘La Cime des Arcs’ but also in 4 other residences situated in Arcs 2000 and Val Thorens, and our guests are happy. TRIAX and the installers work as a team and provide excellent customer service — it’s their main strength.”

—Kevin Schoenauer, Operations Manager, Chalet des Neiges

Responding to customer needs

As a result of regular customer complaints about the service, the Chalet des Neiges tourist residence had to quickly resolve its Wi-Fi issues.

“TRIAX’s solution is a real competitive advantage for hotels. We only needed a day and half to equip 80 rooms with 3 technicians and install the EoC network solution providing a 1 Gbps IP bandwidth”
Olivier Favre Chairman, Courchevel Telecom

The TRIAX solution: speed quality, reliability

TRIAX’s Ethernet over Coax + WiFi solution was installed using the existing coax network, instantly upgrading the speed and stability of the WiFi, and eliminating negative feedback from guests. The 80 rooms were equipped by three technicians in just one day, without any disruption for the guests or to the residence.

  • Network signal received by the TRIAX EoC Controller (2x EoC 64 + Wi-Fi controller)
  • The Controller transmits the IP network through the existing coax cables
  • The 80 TRIAX End Points, installed in every apartment, transmit the Wi-Fi and the TV signal.

Rainforest Retreat

TRIAX

Luxurious WiFi for a luxury retreat

Set in an abundance of natural splendour, guests at Rainforest Retreat are offered an idyllic combination of relaxation and adventure. They still needed good Wi-Fi however, and were demanding better.

The solution – TRIAX’s Ethernet over Coax (EoC), using G.hn Wave 2 technology – a New Zealand first. Already trusted as Rainforest’s reliable TV distribution partner, TRIAX used the same MATV infrastructure around the site for a revolutionary Wi-Fi upgrade, resulting in:

  • Fast, full interior & exterior Wi-Fi coverage
  • Reduced costs by using existing coax cables
  • Quick, disruption-free installation
  • Future-proofed for upcoming ISP fibre upgrade

Rainforest Retreat
Rainforest Retreat is situated at the feet of the Southern Alps on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, offering premium Tree House, Tree Lodge, Tree Huts and Park Motel accommodation, and a friendly and fun backpackers and holiday camp. www.rainforest.nz

Customer needs

Rainforest Retreat is nestled amongst 6 acres of native bush at the feet of New Zealand’s Southern Alps, offering a combination of luxury, motel and backpacker accommodation.

The existing Wi-Fi setup was not fit for purpose: with only outdoor access points, coverage did not reach much of the guest accommodation’s interior areas.

A reliable, cost-effective solution was needed that did not affect the availability of guest accommodation.

“TRIAX has transformed the Wi-Fi offering here at Rainforest. Guests are happier, and we’ve been delighted with the minimal fuss and speed of installation.”

—Mark Nicholson
Developments Manager, Rainforest Retreat

The TRIAX solution: speed, quality, reliability

Having previously installed a TDX headend to handle Rainforest’s TV distribution, TRIAX knew the existing coax infrastructure could surpass requirements, without the costs or environmental disruption involved in installing new network cabling.

2 EoC Controllers were installed – one in reception and one at a junction point serving the tree huts – servicing a total of 46 EoC End Points.

The sleek End Points are installed out of sight in all buildings, redistributing TV signals where needed. One End Point in the amenities block also supplies Ethernet for the pre-existing exterior access points.

With gigabit networking both up- and downstream, the G.hn technology employed by TRIAX is much faster than comparative DOCSIS solutions, with 20x lower latency and no TV retuning required.

Network speeds are a shared 2 Gbps across all 46 End Points and 2 controllers, far exceeding the existing internet connection speed to the property and perfectly primed for the future.

Results

  • Site-wide interior & exterior Wi-Fi coverage
  • EoC network is 20x faster than current internet connection – therefore, ready for future fibre rollout in the region
  • End Points installed between check-out and check-in at each property – no guest disruption or lost revenue
  • Installation complete in 4 days
  • End-to-end TRIAX hardware
