Coaxsys Supplies IPTV In-home Networking

Coaxsys, a start-up based in Los Gatos, California, is supplying its IPTV in-home networking solution to McDonough Telephone Cooperative of Illinois. McDonough is the first member of the Western Illinois Video
(WIV) group to achieve an in-home networking solution over existing wiring in the home.

Coaxsys TVnet leverages in-home coaxial wiring to create an IPTV-ready digital entertainment network. Because the Coaxsys system uses the existing cabling, McDonough will no longer have to engage
in costly home rewires.

  • The Coaxsys technology delivers up to 104 Mbps transfer rate and supports distances up to 250 feet, enabling it to deliver multiple HDTV signals simultaneously throughout a home. The TVnet technology is also compatible with TV splitters and supports Ethernet unicast, multicast, and broadcast. The solution consists of a Coaxsys IPTV 7000 TVnet adapter that connects to any network-enabled operating system or device with an RJ-45 Ethernet network interface. It can be used for connecting IPTV set top boxes, gaming console systems, PVRs, multimedia servers, and VoIP phones.
