  • Patent number: 10785829
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to content delivery systems such as gateways for use in locations where the services of many end user devices are provided by a common management entity, such as hospitality, dormitory, healthcare, or other enterprise settings. The disclosure includes a gateway system that is configurable to ingest content from a variety of signals (satellite, broadcast, cable, and IP), process the content to have additional desired features, and reassemble content in various forms for delivery to individual end user devices. The gateway can be constructed from a series of modular processing blades with specific processing functions all interconnected by a common backplane and managed by a control module. A gateway can be inserted downstream from a node to allow additional end units to be added without exceeding the node capacity.
