Global Invacom, a leading innovator and manufacturer of technology to the global satellite industry, has launched a new chip-set that dramatically opens up the market for cost effective products, useable world-wide, for the distribution of multiple satellite TV services over fibre in residential MDUs, hotels and the enterprise.
For the first time the Romeo & Juliet chip-set enables OEMs to develop their own range of FibreIRS™ compatible products for any satellite TV service frequency plan in the world with a single, programmable design.
Global Invacom developed the FibreIRS™ architecture and products to allow cost effective satellite TV service distribution throughout MDUs and hotels. Resilient, lightweight optical fibre cable backbones are used rather than traditional expensive coaxial cable that is highly susceptible to interference and picture degradation and requires signal amplifiers throughout the building.
“The Romeo & Juliet chip-set enables single programmable FibreIRS™ compatible satellite TV service distribution products to be software configurable for any of the many satellite TV frequency plans used in the world,” said Malcolm Burrell, Technical Director.
“Opening up the global FibreIRS™ market to all OEMs is a great opportunity for the satellite TV industry because single programmable global products radically reduce manufacturing proliferation driving cost reductions and increased ROI,” said Ian Walsh, VP Business Development.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

So I guess we’ve officially entered a new era of lean and mean. I say this with the announcement of Ubuntu Snappy Core, “designed for lightweight cloud container hosts running Docker and for smart devices,” according to Canonical. “Snappy Ubuntu Core is the smallest Ubuntu available, designed for security and efficiency in devices or on the cloud.” This first version of Snappy Ubuntu Core features secure app containment and Docker 1.6 (1.5 in main release), is available on public clouds, ...
