Unlike the "good old days" of cable, today's system is a complex of network segments serving both the basic needs of the system as well as the expanding market for off line video, data and business digital services. As the industry migrates to all digital operations, transport systems are required to meet applications far beyond simple video and audio. While new networks are designed based on complex DWDM transport systems, many applications do not require these expansive and expensive networks. In this context, IPITEK's CQ series digital video transporters offer smaller, efficient transport for many specialized services. The CQ products include numerous options for transport of many other types of data besides video and audio and at a lower cost.
