Increasing flexibility, bandwidth and margins for satellite operators while reducing their operational costs was the IBC focus for WORK Microwave.
The company showcased three new products from its A-Series FPGA-based family of modem, modulator, and demodulator platform. On display are the AX-60 IP Modem, AR-60 IP Demodulator and AT-60 IP Modulator platforms for IP trunking and IP network infrastructure applications.
Described as both customisable and scalable, WORK said that the A-Series can be adapted to any throughput, data analysis method, and other waveforms beyond DVB-S2X, making it appropriate for telecommunication companies, Internet service providers, teleport operators, government and intelligence agencies, and operators of low orbit (LEO) satellite constellations.
Using the A-Series, WORK explained that operators can transmit and receive DVB-S2X signals with what the company said is the utmost efficiency and ease of operation. Use cases include high-speed network links (100, 200, or 300 Mbps) over satellite, IP-based satellite newsgathering, IP-based contribution and distribution links, connection to and from LEO for earth observation, and reception and analysis of satellite communication. By providing operators with a future-proof and flexible platform for both standardised DVB-S2X and customised satellite communication, WORK claims the A-Series simplifies the transition toward an all-IP environment.
