Excellent WiFi for an idyllic holiday retreat

Æblehaven Resort

Excellent WiFi for an idyllic holiday retreat

Æblehaven holiday park, situated a stone’s throw from the northern beaches of the Danish island of Bornholm, had everything a guest could wish for – except internet access.

To satisfy soaring demand for WiFi, and to provide the opportunity for guests to cast streaming services to in-room TVs, a fast, modern hospitality WiFi solution was needed.

Wishing to avoid a costly and disruptive installation, the resort owners were also on the lookout for a solution that would make use of the existing park communications infrastructure.

TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax + WiFi) was chosen to meet these criteria. It uses the TV cables already in place, resulting in:

  • Quick, cost-saving installation: no new cables needed
  • Reliable WiFi network for 70 holiday homes

“The EoC system is so easy to install. We’ve introduced a brand new WiFi network to reach 70 holiday homes, simply by using the existing TV cables.”

— Johann Karlsen
Owner, Service Centret Bornholm

Æblehaven Feriecenter, Bornholm
Family-oriented holiday homes idyllically situated in a former apple orchard in northern Bornholm in the Baltic Sea.

A total of 70 holiday homes for 4-6 people are on offer at Æblehaven.

www.teambornholm.dk/her-kan-du-bo/æblehaven/

Technical details

In collaboration with installation partner Service Centret Bornholm, TRIAX provided:

  • 1x TRIAX EoC Controller 64/4 – creating an IP network with 1.0 Gbps throughput over the pre-existing coax cables
  • 49x TRIAX EoC Coax WiFi End Points – transmitting WiFi and TV signals, with no need to retune the TVs
  • More End Points planned to be added throughout 2021 as more holiday home owners express interest in the service

TRIAX extends the new compact headend platform

Launched last year, the new compact headend platform from TRIAX is now extended with more versions, features and benefits.

Hornsyld, Denmark, 2 July 2021

Announced today, the new TRIAX TDcH compact headend platform now offers even more benefits to both new and existing customers with an array of new input types, output modulations, and software functions.

The TDcH compact headend is optimised and engineered to meet specific TV distribution requirements in hospitality, multi-dwelling units and related sectors, with an appealing, competitive cost per service ratio.

It is built on a cutting edge new platform where many functions are software-based.

This software platform benefits customers as they will be able to upgrade their already installed TDcH with new software releases and thereby always have the latest functions available.

“TRIAX headends are the truest expression of our values of reliability and innovation. We’re proud to be headend experts, devoting ourselves to their development for over 20 years. We are excited to see our vision for this new platform really come to life with this second wave of new versions and features. It not only gives customers a wider variety of models to choose from but also allows existing customers to benefit from continually added features.”
Carsten Nielsen, TRIAX CPO

Additional input types and output modulations

Newly launched versions of the TDcH compact headend make it possible to choose between QAM and COFDM modulation in the software during setup.

A satellite-only configuration is equipped with 4 DVB-S2X inputs distributed to 16 tuners, 16 QAM or COFDM modulators and 8 CI slots. A free-to-air only version is also available.

A new satellite, terrestrial and cable configuration is available with 4 DVB-S2X inputs distributed to 16 tuners, 1 DVB-T2/C input distributed to 6 tuners, 16 QAM or COFDM modulators and 8 CI slots.

The TDcH compact headend is built for both wall mounting and 19″ racks. Each model stands just 90mm tall and the new integrated SCR multiswitch is an additional space-saving benefit.

Advanced functionalities via complimentary software updates

“In the complimentary software update we have not only included popular functions from the high-end TDX headend like Multiplexing via IP pool technology, PID and EPG management, but also new features like the ability to handle multilingual services. In September, a further software update will upgrade all models to include an integrated SCR multiswitch for a time-, cost- and space saving installation”
Dietmar Rauch, Headend Product Manager at TRIAX

The TDcH compact headend has been developed from the ground up at TRIAX’s R&D base in Denmark. It joins the TDH 800 modular and TDX scalable headends in the TRIAX headend portfolio, which has sold over 24,000 units in the last decade alone.

The new versions of the TRIAX TDcH compact headend are available to order from today.

IPTV & WiFi in three Spanish hospitals

TRIAX

Samsung and TRIAX solution keeps patients entertained and connected

Hospitals and patients benefit from IPTV and WiFi, with no new cables needed

Beyond outstanding healthcare, premium entertainment and WiFi connectivity are essential components of a private hospital’s offer to patients and guests.

To provide this, legacy technology often needs to be replaced, but without impacting the day-to-day operation of the hospital or its critical services.

Javier Alonso of Diconplaweb S.L. worked with Samsung Display Solutions and TRIAX Spain to carry out major refurbishments of the patient entertainment systems – without drills, hammers or any wards out of service.

  • Quick, disruption-free, low-cost installation
  • IPTV & WiFi over coax cables already in place
  • No disturbance to hospital staff or patients
  • Does not interfere with critical hospital networks
  • Outstanding patient satisfaction

“The TRIAX solution enables Samsung Smart Hospitality TVs to deliver interactivity and smart functions directly to patients, without the necessity of rewiring buildings and switching rooms off for refurbishment. That’s especially needed now during the COVID-19 pandemic, when all available beds are so valuable.”

—Piotr Lipiec
EU BDM Samsung HTV

Complete IPTV and WiFi system

Smart Hospitality Displays from Samsung Display Solutions provide rich interactive entertainment, also functioning as a private Access Point for patient and guest WiFi access.

They connect to a gigabit IP network provided by TRIAX EoC (Ethernet over Coax).

“The use of existing coaxial cables for the implementation of the system is a great advantage. Execution times and costs are considerably reduced.”
Javier Alonso, Managing Director, Diconplaweb S.L. (Installer)

A TRIAX EoC Controller sends outstanding, reliable connectivity around the hospitals’ existing coax cable network.

A TRIAX EoC MediaConverter is discreetly installed on the back of each Samsung Hospitality TV. It takes the IP signals in via coax, and provides the necessary LAN connection to the TV.

All three hospitals have been delighted with the high speed and low costs of the unobtrusive installation, which has been achieved without having to close any rooms or wards.

The hospitals can then monetise value-added IPTV and WiFi services by offering access on demand.

Combined, the technology provides all a system integrator needs to offer outstanding entertainment and reliable connectivity to the health care sector.

  • Quick, disruption-free, low-cost installation
  • IPTV & WiFi over coax cables already in place
  • No disturbance to hospital staff or patients
  • Does not interfere with critical hospital networks
  • Outstanding patient satisfaction

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.

How to update & further questions

We have made a general step-by-step guide on how to upgrade the EoC Software:

How do I upgrade the software?

For any questions regarding the software release or the EoC product family in general, don’t hesitate to reach out to your usual TRIAX sales representative.

TRIAX Ethernet over Coax

Gigabit networking over existing cables

Use the TV cables you already have to run network services you and your customers can rely on. Installation costs are significantly reduced, since there’s no need to install expensive additional cabling.

The installation is quick and discreet, and you won’t even have to take rooms out of service.
