Engineering is the application of scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to design, build, maintain and improve structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes.
At Toner Cable, a dedicated staff of engineering and technical support personnel can assist with the loftiest of projects. Toner Cable has years of technical and engineering experience in RF distribution, fiber optic systems, headends, satellite systems, SD and HD headend electronics, set-top converters, IPTV solutions and off-air reception.
Toner Cable has helped customers, from large to small, with simple and complex projects. Some of these include:
- NASA, Digital HD headend and Conditional Access system
- Formula 1, Digital transcoding and multiformat modulation
- Whitehouse Communications, Digital Headends at 5 locations
- FBI, secure Fiber transport
- Major League Baseball, 200 program HD headend
- Bellaire Cable, transition from Analog to Digital
For many of these systems, Toner Cable not only provided the system design but also acted as the onsite system integrator, which required analysis and troubleshooting of existing problems. Customers even asked Toner Cable to provide system configuration and commissioning along with post installation support.
In one recent case, Toner Cable had supplied a turnkey headend installation where the reception of signals and infrastructure wiring was done by a third party company. After months and months of problems, the customer brought in Toner Cable's technicians for three days to fix the problems. Toner Cable quickly realized that poor work by the third party company, including misaligned satellite antennas, loose hardware on the antennas, crossed L band fiber feeds, incorrectly installed L band amplifiers, over driven optical receivers and overall poor workmanship, was the culprit. In just two days, all the problems were corrected and the customer had excellent quality TV for their customers, eliminating over six months of trouble and complaints.
Toner Cable offers varied and affordable solutions to existing problems as well as ongoing tech support and maintenance, if needed.
