CHAMELEON

A Software-Based Headend Platform

Chameleon is a modular headend system managing with only a single module type. The integrated modules can change their function as needed. They are designed for all current and future applications and superbly suited, both, for the transition from the analogue to the digital environment as well as for the connection between HFC and IP distribution platform.
