Lyfe Communications to Provide Services to Archstone Memorial Heights Apartment Complex in Texas

Lyfe Communications has entered into a contract to provide services to the Archstone Memorial Heights apartment complex in Houston, Texas. As per the contract, the company will extend its Data and Telephony services to 584 customers in the apartment complex.

 The services will be implemented in the first quarter of 2013. The company will also be well positioned to follow on with additional services.

Greg Smith, CEO at Lyfe Communications, said, “This is yet another tremendous opportunity for our company. Extending our advanced Data services at Archstone Memorial Heights will increase customer Internet speeds and open up new opportunities for additional services.”

Lyfe Communications also recently filed another core technology patent around its Adaptive Multicasting technology. Middle and last mile IP data networks have loosely coordinated connections and capacities. To reliably transit these networks, transmission systems must be able to adjust to individual link capabilities.

This technology enables real-time stream switching so the transmission can successfully propagate each network link.

“This is the first multi-point control system for television delivery that allows reliable transmission of TV over data networks,” Smith added. “In the past 10 years, new technologies have enabled video on demand over data networks but they do not support live Television with large audiences. Lyfe Communications is the first to develop the control systems for Adaptive Multicast. Our technology will allow streaming to large numbers of concurrent viewers over the data network in real time."

Adaptive Multicast technology with stream switching, according to Smith, can be used to deliver High-Definition TV with Video on Demand over existing data networks. It lowers capital and operating expenses on private networks for last mile distribution, and allows the use of the general Internet for backhaul delivery.
