Tieline has announced it has developed a new internal Dual Active SIM LTE module for the ViA remote codec supporting two active cellular connections. Designed to perform in the most challenging production environments, the new module supports using SIM cards from different Telcos simultaneously for diversity when using Tieline’s industry-leading SmartStream PLUS dual redundant streaming technology. The two SIM cards can also be bonded 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 offers the ability to 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 4 antenna connections to provide antenna diversity for both SIM card connections.
There will be an International and US version of the module to suit different cellular networks and shipping dates will be announced after NAB 2019. Tieline invites engineers to see the new module and other innovative features at booth N7119 during NAB 2019.
