FDN Norwich DAB MUX Occupancy Info


How we use the FDN Greater Norwich DAB Multiplex

The tables below show the amount of capacity used to provide DAB services on the FDN Small Scale Multiplex for the Greater Norwich area. The number of Capacity Units (CU) used to provide each service depends upon the audio data rate used (kbps) and the protection level employed (UEP). Protection level 1 is the highest and 3 is the lowest available in the UK. The total number of Capacity Units (CU) available in the multiplex is 864 CU.

NOTES:
If an occasional / temporary Future Pop-Up service is required (at 80 kbps / 58 CU / mono MP2 / UEP 3), this would mean reducing Future Radio from 160 kbps (116 CU / stereo MP2 / UEP3) to 128 kbps (96 CU / stereo MP2 / UEP3). This would free up a further 20 CU, (making a total of 66 CU available) and therefore leaving 8 CU available for data use etc.
