Saankhya Labs Broadcast Radio Head (BRH) solution is a new paradigm for NextGen Digital Terrestrial Transmission (DTT). Deployed in a Low-Power Low Tower (LPLT) topology, it can create uniformly high signal strength to support Direct to Mobile (DTM) indoor reception. LPLT enables efficient spectrum reuse and can also supplement conventional High-Power High Tower (HPHT) deployments. Other applications can include 5G Broadcast, NB-IoT services etc. through the same network.

BRH enables 5G Broadcast technology using a Converged Broadcast and Mobile Broadband network delivered to smartphones, tablets and connected cars, and for IoT applications
