Kathrein Supports Broadcasters with Solutions for FCC Repack 

With the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) broadcast television spectrum incentive auction wrapping up, the challenges facing the North American Broadcasters to transition to new channels in the allotted time frame are significant.

The voluntary, market-based auction — made available to the nation’s nearly 1,800 broadcast stations, provided broadcasters with an opportunity to sell their spectrum and go off air, share a channel with another broadcaster, or move to a different frequency.

After the auction, between 800 and 1,200 broadcasters will need to be repacked; meaning assigned a different frequency. With the move in frequency, broadcast stations will need new equipment such as transmitters, filters, and antennas to transmit different frequencies. The federal government is incentivizing displaced broadcasters with $1.75 billion in funding to upgrade station infrastructures.

Kathrein’s New Pylon Antenna

Kathrein announces a fully broadband, side-mounted pylon antenna to quickly and efficiently meet Broadcaster’s repack needs.

RFID

RFID

The capacity to track products and goods, along with increasing transparency and globalization requires companies to optimize logistical processes on a lasting basis. However, simple identification systems such as barcodes are no longer sufficient to ensure seamless traceability along the entire supply chain. Today, more detailed information is required such as value added data and changes in object status. RFID technology makes it very simple to increase efficiency and automate processes.

Kathrein offers a full suite of global RFID Readers, RFID AntennasRFID Transpondersand RFID Accessories.  In addition, Kathrein offers two software modules: Reader Start software included with all RFID Readers; and for larger systems and global applications, Kathrein offers the CrossTalk solution that is platform-independent and SAP Certified.  CrossTalk can be used with common user friendly modules or customized to fit specific customer needs or network management systems. Additionally, the CrossTalk software can scale as needed utilizing powerful proven functions that can save your company time and money.

For customized solutions, Kathrein offers RF simulation, application support, software integration, consultation and design services.
