DR needs a new distribution network for FM and DAB+ broadcasting. This tender covers the transmission of data from DR Byen to the individual transmitter sites, to be provided as a service.
It includes the lease and operation of a large number of transmission lines, as well as intermediate hardware both in DR Byen and at the transmitter sites, including but not limited to networking equipment, audio codecs and DAB EDI to ETI converters.
A very high level of reliability is required, and redundant transmission lines will be a necessity for a large number of sites. Design proposals are provided in the tender material, but ultimately the design of the system is up to each potential vendor.
It is expected that vendors will need to employ subcontractors in order to provide the required expertise in all areas of the tender, including network technology and broadcast-specific equipment and services.
