Trilithic's Debuts EASyCAP Solution, a CAP-Compliant Alert System

 By David Gitonga, TMCnet Contributing Writer

Earlier this month at NAB 2012 held April 16-19 in Las Vegas, Trilithic Inc., debuted its solution for CAP IPAWS compliance solution, Next Gen Emergency Alert System (EAS). The one-box solution from Trilithic receives EAS alert messages which includes franchise agreement messages in addition to controlling networking devices that will help deliver local messages to system subscribers.

The solution uses secure web servers and SNMP, open and common architecture interfaces that offer flexible platforms that allow the addition of new capabilities.

This is also a low cost solution for system operators looking to add alert capabilities to their EASy series systems. The EASyCAP Encoder/Decoder system allows the integration of CAP sources making it possible to supply multiple units with CAP messages simultaneously.

Governor must-carry alerts are also supported. In order to allow system operators to implement the CAP-compliant solutions, FCC (News - Alert) moved the implementation of the new CAP guidelines deadline from Sept. 29, 2011 to June 30, 2012.

In the BTR’s 2011 Diamond Technology Review, Trilithic’s EASyCAP solution got an impressive 4.5 out of a possible 5 diamond points. One of the judges at the review said that the decision to award this high rank was due to the fact that “Trilithic had stepped up to CAP requirements providing ways to deal with the classic EAS gear and handle the newest digital architectures deployed in the field.”

While still providing legacy systems with integrated and scalable solutions, EASyCAP was also able to comply with the recent CAP rules. The level of flexibility in handling deployed mobile & IPTV (News - Alert) solutions in the future using abundant interfaces was also a determining factor in the decision process.

Trilithic’s primary product lines are offering broadband testing and quality management instrumentation in broadband networks. Founded in 1987, the company has become a leader in telecommunications solutions around the world. It also offers Emergency Alert Systems for government use in the U.S. market.
