Technetix has developed a smart powering system that reduces power consumption between 25% to 30% just by changing the method of generating power. The webinar will address the technology behind network power, as 70% to 80% of MSO power bills are down to overall consumption. Active components such as nodes, RPDs and amplifiers consume power, are primarily delivered via existing COAX wiring on a low voltage to keep the networks safe to work on. This technology is 30 to 40 years old and is still used in every network.

But rather than replacing hundreds of components in a service group, Technetix have developed a radical new power-saving technology. This presentation will explain the principles, the test results, and the pros and cons of this new technology.

Jan Ariesen said: “A big step made to meet NetZero goals: 25% - 30% saving by changing the power principle of networks. Just because we have always done it this way, doesn’t mean there isn’t a better way.”

Anthony Basham, President of the SCTE added: “Technetix are doing great things in working towards NetZero and we are delighted to showcase their important work in this field. This is the third webinar we have hosted with them so I know we are in for a treat.”
