Flensburg, Germany - Dec 2, 2013 - Norway's new nationwide public radio DAB+ radio network is being built with technology from 2wcom in an extensive project to ready the country for its planned FM sunset in 2017. 2wcom's FlexNsert DAB+ Distribution Inserter and FlexXtract DAB+ Distribution Extractor will be deployed in the network's satellite head-end system, in what is believed to be the world's first to provide DAB+ radio via standardized IP delivery over Ku-band satellite.

Norway's national broadcaster, NRK, will use landline connections to the network's main transmission sites, while using satellite distribution for the 400 outlying transmitters used to reach remote communities. FlexNsert systems at the DAB+ satellite uplink head-end at the Nittedal Teleport outside Oslo can receive DAB+ data streams in ETI or EDI form, and convert them to a standard MPEG-TS signal for satellite contribution. Each of the 400 transmission stations served by satellite will use FlexXtract systems to demodulate the DVB-S/S2 signals and convert them to feed the DAB+ transmitters.

2wcom worked closely with Norkring (the nationwide network operator) and was responsible for integrating the digital and satellite components of the infrastructure.
