Demodulator Solution for Satellite Earth Station Operators and Service Providers

DB-16S KEY FEATURES

• 8PSK & 16QAM - QPSK modulation as standard. 8PSK and 16QAM options provide increased efficiency and savings on satellite bandwidth. These options can be purchased initially or later as soft-key upgrades, allowing a unit to be enhanced as required in just a few minutes.

• 16K TPC - Latest generation 16K Turbo Product Code and Viterbi are included as standard, as are data rates up to 2Mbps per channel simultaneously with the option of even faster data rates now available via soft-key upgrade. This means no expensive and disruptive hardware upgrades are necessary.

• L-Band & IF Interfaces - User configurable L-Band and 70/140MHz IF interfaces as standard. This means no L-Band option price premium that is typical on modems and allows for total flexibility by removing the need to return the unit to the manufacturer for costly and time consuming modifications. The DB-16S has two RF inputs so each group of 8 channels can be set with either the same or different RF interfaces. Significant additional savings result by removing the need for external splitters or switch matrices.

• Redundant PSUs - Dual power supplies with individual power inlets are fitted as standard for redundancy and enhanced reliability.

• Compatibility - The DB-16S is compatible with all major manufacturers’ satellite modems, protecting your existing investment at the remote sites and allowing you to relocate any existing earth station modems to new remote sites.

• Lower cost entry point - For smaller applications eight or twelve channel versions of the DB-16S can be purchased to reduce your initial capital expenditure. Simple and fast soft-key upgrades to up to 16 channels can be procured as your requirements change, providing ultimate flexibility.
