Open Linux computer on a headend platform
Luminato application module brings full-featured Linux computer to a headend platform. It interfaces seamlessly with Luminato just as all the other Luminato modules. The module is equipped with Linux OS which makes it robust and allows utilizing familiar software programming tools for application development.
The module has two gigabit ethernet ports and dedicated ports both for management and streaming payload in or out of the module. It comes also with USB port and a slot for microSD memory cards. Further, it has a PCI Express (PCIe) bus for external hard drives or any other equipment utilizing the same interface.
Set no limits for creativity
Only your imagination can set limits for the application development. There are numerous application areas for utilizing the module features - for example:
- NVOD or CA server in a same chassis with the headend platform
- Stream analyzing applications for ensuring service quality
- Applications for remote management without connecting the headend platform directly to the Internet
- L2TP frame encapsulation (DOCSIS 3.1, distributed access)
Or you can independently develop any other application by yourself - just as you would do it on a separate server.
Next generation density
All the applications on the application module are by default fully integrated with Luminato, being in a same chassis with the rest of the other modules in the headend platform. There is no need for a separate rack server which makes it easier to manage and install the system. Instead of having multiple devices, one truly complete package does it all.
