Edge QAM


IFQ360 is a next generation edge QAM designed to meet the growing demand for VOD distribution over an IP or HFC network. IFQ360 also comes with multiplexing and DVB simulcrypt scrambling capability that supports different system integration needs. The IFQ360 Edge QAM is a great value for content redistribution, VOD services and Switched Broadcast Video.

  • High-density, 10Gbps input and 192 QAM output
  • Redundant power supply and IP/QAM module backup
  • Independent selection of each QAM frequency
  • Perfect for VOD and program distribution
  • Up to 2560 TS/IP streams input supported

VOD Service
In the VOD application, IFQ360 is used to receive IP streams generated from a VOD server, and then modulates them in QAM for transmission through HFC network.

Network Distribution
The IFQ360 enables an operator to build a remote headend in an efficient and cost-effective way. The IFQ360 receives the programs from the master headend via IP, then multiplexes and modulates the channels to the available QAM frequencies for local distribution. Compared to traditional local headend, IFQ360 can substantially reduce the number of headends needed and generate savings in large deployments.
