The full-power, multi-site test platform using channel 43 in both markets will deploy a full range of ‘Next Gen’ services that include fixed, portable and mobile capabilities. The test is designed to provide real-time assessments of quality of service using the new Internet Protocol-based standard currently being reviewed by the Advanced Television Systems Committee.
