Tieline has developed a new Dual Active SIM internal module for the ViA remote codec supporting two active cellular connections.
The company says the module, which is “designed to perform in the most challenging production environments,” supports the use of SIM cards from different Telcos simultaneously for diversity when using Tieline’s SmartStream Plus dual redundant streaming technology. Users can also bond the two SIM cards to create additional bandwidth using a single robust Fuse-IP link.
“The new ViA dual internal modem will deliver more choice to Tieline customers for wireless remote broadcasting,” said Charlie Gawley, VP Sales APAC/EMEA. “The ViA already supports connecting two air cards using USB, however many customers requested an internal module with dual modems to avoid using external dongles. This innovation also means there will be seven different IP interface options from which to choose when going live.”
The ViA lets operators connect over dual Ethernet ports, built-in Wi-Fi (no USB modem required), dual air cards, and now the new module with dual internal modems. Any two interfaces can also be bonded to deliver secure and robust connections from remote locations in challenging environments. The new Dual Active SIM module has four antenna connections to provide antenna diversity for both SIM card connections.
There will be an international and U.S. version of the module to suit different cellular networks.
