Fibre Integrated Reception Systems (F-IRS)
The ability to distribute these TV and radio services throughout the largest of buildings has taken us to the tallest of the UK skyscrapers to fit satellite and aerial systems.
Intergrated Reception Systems (IRS) have historically delivered satellite and terrestrial television services through hotels, commercial properties and leisure facilities using satellite dishes and aerial arrays with coaxial analogue cabling systems and signal amplifiers.
Fibre integrated reception systems (F-IRS) distribute satellite and terrestrial TV, Digital Audio Broadcast Radio (DAB) and FM Radio throughout very large facilities or campuses using singlemode fibre. This negates all of the signal losses associated with long cable runs in the former method and allows quality signaling to be distributed without any interference across a very reliable and effective cable medium – glass.
The signals are harnessed in exactly the same way as with any satellite dish or digital TV/radio antenna array but are converted at source and injected into fibre optic cable systems using laser technologies that can carry signals for tens of kilometers with negligible signal losses. These fibres can be split up to 32 times without further signal amplification, meaning the system is easily scalable and very affordable.
At the destination end, the optical signal is converted and distributed on a conventional TV cable system within each residential or work demise.
The tallest F-IRS systems deployed by Trusol to date is on the 8 Bishopsgate building in London which stands 52 floors above ground level. You certainly need a head for heights when installing the aerials and satellite dishes on the roof of these buildings.
The following photos show the F-IRS survey team on that project, assessing the best place for the satellite dishes and aerial array on the roof of 8BG
“Trusol’s managed services have helped us be more efficient by freeing up our office staff to concentrate on their jobs. Not being very technical myself, it’s invaluable to us to know that we can rely on the flexibility and professionalism of the team at Trusol and the remote support provided is second-to-none”
“We are an IT consultant for businesses of all sizes. We have used Trusol for all our cabling and meeting room setups for years. Both us and our clients have always been delighted with their work and professionalism and would highly recommend them for any installations.”
“The input & commitment from the ECP Trusol team made a significant contribution to the timely completion of our new Central London offices, fully kitted out with the latest smart building technologies, all of which are supported over the converged network infrastructure as installed and commissioned by the team at ECP Trusol ”
“Our meeting room systems used to be difficult to use and were expensive whenever anything went wrong. Since we upgraded the rooms with Trusol’s help, we save a lot of time at the beginning of meetings as everything works as it should and we also save money with a reduced number of service callouts.”
“We chose Trusol for digital signage services and the installations were completed quickly and efficiently. They helped us get up and running and showed us how to easily manage our systems. Five years on and we are still getting return on our investment every day, with all the right information displayed just where we need it”
“Trusol’s knowledge of converged network systems coupled with their meticulous project planning in this particular discipline has made them a pleasure to work with. Smart buildings are the new tomorrow and we regularly call on Trusol to work with our team of designers, estimators and project managers to develop new opportunities in this field. Their input and advice is second to none and they come very highly recommended”
“We’re always happy to engage Trusol for our networking and AV needs, the quality and service they provide continues to surpass our expectations. Their skilled and professional installers are always happy to go the extra mile to do a great job and leave a very happy client. We’d definitely recommend Trusol for your next project.”
