Multichannel multipoint distribution service. A broadcasting and communications service that operates in the ultra-high-frequency (UHF) portion of the radio spectrum between 2.1 and 2.7 GHz. MMDS is also known as wireless cable.
Multi-channel Microwave Distribution System: an analogue broadcasting medium which allows distribution of a number of analogue television channels (typically ten). Used to provide 'cable television' in areas where cable-laying is not viable.
Microwave Multichannel Distribution System. A distribution service for TV signals using microwave transmissions. Also called multichannel video distribution system (MVDS). In the US, it is called "wireless cable".
Microwave Multi-Channel Distribution System. A TV distribution service using microwave transmissions. Also called multi-channel video distribution system (MVDS). In the US, it is called 'wireless cable".
Multi-channel Multi-point Distribution System. This technology is a carrier service for short distance line of sight transmission of a TV programming to selected locations. Subscribers use a specialized antenna and converter combination to receive the signal, which may be scrambled to prevent unauthorized reception. Multipoint Distribution Service (MDS) – A common carrier service used to transmit private TV programming or data to locations within a metropolitan area. It is used to transmit special TV channels to hotels, and to transmit pay TV programs to cable systems.
Multi channel Multipoint Distribution System. Terrestrial microwave system used to distribute high-bandwidth services to end-users at homes and offices. Advantage of MMDS over satellite-based services is in its ability to include local content programming.
Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Systems are channels used to provide wireless cable service, a viable option to wired cable. Frequency bands start at 2.5 GHz and cover a geographical region of customers who should be in direct line of sight of the transmitter for the microwave to get to them reliably.
A broadcasting and communications service that operates between 2.1 GHz and 2.7 GHz. MMDS also is known as wireless cable. It was originally conceived as a substitute for conventional cable TV. However, it also has applications in telephone/fax and data communications.
Multi-channel, Multi-point, Distribution Service, "wireless cable" broadcasting. Wireless cable technology using frequencies in the 2.5 - 2.7 GHz band. One antenna can serve line-of-site customers in a thirty-mile radius. Customers use a twelve-inch dish to receive the signal and require a set-top box to descramble it. MMDS is very popular in much of the developing world because of the relatively low cost of passing a large number of subscribers. While analog systems have been limited by a relatively small number of available channels, new digital systems utilizing mpeg-2 compression promise to increase dramatically the capacity and the attractiveness of this broadband technology.
A technique for supplying broadband access via a point-to-point microwave digital system. It operates in the 2GHz to 3GHz band and can cover a fairly large area (approximately 30 miles [48 kilometers]). It provides great capacity in that it enables 150 channels. Also called wireless cable.
