Digital Divide Negation In Taiwan With CPI's ASC Signal Division's New Earth Station Antennas

The ASC Signal Division of Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) has won a contract to provide nine Earth station antennas to be installed in the outlying islands and remote areas of Taiwan.

Transcontinental Enterprises Company, headquartered in Taipei, awarded the contract and noted that the installations are designed to improve basic telecommunications coverage in parts of Taiwan that are mountainous and remote, reducing the risk of a “digital divide” in those areas by providing better telecommunications access.

Under the contract with Transcontinental, CPI ASC Signal Division will provide a broad range of Earth station antennas, consisting of five 4.9 meter, one 7.6 meter and three 3.7 meter Earth station antennas.  All of the antennas will be equipped with the CPI ASC Signal Division Next-Generation Controller (NGC), which gives the local operator a single, simplified, central device to control and operate multiple antenna systems.  The features of the NGC are considered advanced for the industry and include remote access and tracking capabilities built into the system, an internal spectrum analyzer, redundancy control systems and built-in support for fiber-optic inter-facility links.

In addition to this latest contract with Transcontinental, CPI ASC Signal Division works with a range of integrators and customers throughout Asia to service the thriving demand for communications network infrastructure able to address the growing consumption of media and data in that region.
