Leipzig gets local DTT network

Mugler AG has been commissioned by Bundesnetzagentur to build and maintain the technical infrastructure of a local DVB-T network in the city of Leipzig according to the media authority for the German state of Saxony (SLM).

Mugler AG will now build a network of five low power transmitters capable of covering 200,000 households in the city.
