The wholesale transmission and distribution service focuses on smartgrid substation connectivity, distribution automation, disaster recovery, remote IT life cycle management, and cyber security. The retail service focuses heavily on TV subscriptions, which is a select channel line-up of programming transmitted via a Ku–Band Direct Broadcast Satellite. This platform allows customers to implement a selection of channels, with local broadcast stations. Each Head End in standard configuration is equipped to produce a 30 channel IPTV stream and 6 Off-Air channels. The facility head-end is physically smaller, less costly and has more functionality than those being used by other service providers, and allows customers to have a seamless migration plan to go from an analog video cable system to a full digital plant. Installation time is typically less than one day. A small (4’) Satellite dish allows installation to be below the radar of municipal authority.
