Trilithic, an industry specialist in broadband test and measurement solutions, has announced that the company received FCC approval for its EASyCAP Encoder/Decoder next-generation Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) Emergency Alert System (EAS) alerting equipment.
The Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) is a message format for exchanging all-hazard emergency alerts and public warnings over all kinds of networks. EAS participants must be able to receive CAP messages by June 30, 2012.
Trilithic received notification from the FCC in November 2011 that the EASyCAP Encoder/Decoder complies with the FCC’s updated Part 11 regulations governing EAS. Certification assures users in broadcast television, radio, and cable that the equipment meets the requirements for compliance with the regulations governing authorized CAP EAS equipment for broadcasters and cable operators.
“Naturally, we’re very pleased regarding the certification. We were the first to be certified. However, as a leading manufacturer, we expect for all of our EAS and CAP-IPAWS equipment to be in compliance with the FCC Part 11 Regulations,” noted President of Trilithic, Terry Bush. “Trilithic has two separate FCC Certifications for our different EAS hardware systems as they are physically different platforms.”
Trilithic’s current FCC certification IDs include the EASyPLUS FCC ID: P4V-EASYPLUS-1, issued July 10, 2002 and the EASyCAP Encoder/Decoder FCC ID: P4V-EASYCAP-1, issued November 28, 2011.
