New White Papers for SLM-5650B & SLM-5650C Satellite Modems

Four new white papers are now available for the SLM-5650B & SLM-5650C Satellite Modems:

SLM-5650B and SLM-5650C Low Power Spectral Density Application
SLM-5650B and SLM-5650C – Overhead
SLM-5650B Bridged Point-to-Multipoint
SLM-5650B and SLM-5650C Spread Spectrum

LGAN C- or Ku-Band Block Up Converter (BUC)/SSPA

The LGAN is designed to eliminate the traditional requirement for the modem to supply a DC power source and a 10 MHz reference to the BUCs and LNBs. The LGAN’s optional internal reference and LNB bias T greatly simplify multi-carrier operation and provide cost-effective redundant solutions. It offers valuable features not found in other L-Band BUC products.


SLM-5650C & SLM-5650C ODU CyberLynx Software Defined Modems

These are our latest generation modem solutions for government and military applications and small commercial SatCom terminals. Featuring extremely compact form factors and an extensive list of software options, the SLM-5650C & SLM-5650C ODU CyberLynx can be integrated with a variety of platforms and provide an upgrade path to support your future requirements.

New Low-Cost H-Pico Heights Remote Gateway

We expanded our Heights Networking Platform product line to add a new low-cost, high-performance remote gateway, the H-Pico Heights Remote Gateway. The H-Pico will address CAPEX-sensitive end users while retaining our position as the high-performance VSAT solution. It supports multiple remote to hub throughput tiers up to 10 Mbps, which is managed via a centralized licensing capability. This scheme allows users to standardize on a single remote platform for low to medium capacity sites, simplifying stocking and sparing. Additionally, H-Pico supports inbound hub to remote symbol rates up to 500 Msps with standards-based DVB-S2X MODCODs supporting up to 256APSK.

Durostream AHA723 & AHA725

Provides a resilient, full-duplex, point-to-point survivable tunnel that dynamically adapts to network conditions to maximize throughput as well as minimize packet loss and latency. Forward Error Correction technology along with header compression is employed to ensure that protocol overhead and latency due to retransmissions are minimized while retaining the ability to overcome sustained packet loss rates. Adding Durostream appliances to the data source and destination provides significant cost savings by allowing mission-critical links to use existing lossy network infrastructure.
