The Luminato FEC codec module provides an advanced error correction and protection platform for SPTS and MPTS IP streams. The FEC codec module makes it possible for a Cable TV operator to provide high-quality, error free services in an optimal and flexible way.
The Luminato FEC codec module supports both encoder and decoder functions in the same module with either mode. Versatile configuration options supported by numerous monitoring functions make it possible to select the most efficient method for minimizing the impact of errors in the IP network.
The Luminato FEC codec module is fully compatible with the high-performance Luminato chassis, where it can be fitted freely to any of the six module slots. In accordance with the Luminato system’s architecture, the stream is processed on the FEC codec modules, which enables low-cost applications, even with a partially equipped chassis, while having the performance scalability of a fully equipped chassis.
Extreme error resistance
The Luminato ProMPEGFEC encoder and decoder support both 1D and 2D FEC patterns up to 120 streams. The FEC matrix size is fully configurable, enabling square and parallelogram rectangle shapes.
The FEC decoder is able to recover all recoverable packets, regardless of whether they are erroneous, lost, reordered or duplicated. Versatile monitoring functions that have been completed using statistics information enable a comprehensive view of the input streams; this can also be done for a longer period of time. One benefit of the Luminato FEC decoder is the network jitter monitoring feature, which can show the current and peak jitter of the received packets, thus helping to reveal possible network problems.
The FEC encoder provides error protection for the output IP streams. The adjustable configuration supported by the FEC overhead and decoding latency estimation enables the operator to select the most efficient mode that has been adapted for the network infrastructure.
