At CABSAT 2013, Work Microwave will demonstrate a series of technologies geared toward its Middle Eastern, African, and Southern Asian customer base. In addition to showcasing the company’s DVB-S2 Modem SK-DV, DVB-S2 IP-Modem SK-IP, and Fifth Generation Frequency Converter Series, Work Microwave will unveil a new DVB-S2 multistream feature for its demodulator product line.

New DVB-S2 Multistream Feature for SDD-TS and SDD-DV Demodulators

At CABSAT 2013, Work Microwave will introduce DVB-S2 multistream functionality to its complete line of demodulator solutions, including the company’s SDD-TS and SDD-DV products. Utilising this new technology, users reportedly can seamlessly demodulate multiple transport streams (up to six) and IP data from a single carrier, thereby optimizing efficiencies while reducing the amount of equipment required for uplink and downlink operations. Ideal for local cable distribution and satellite newsgathering applications, the company claims, the technology simultaneously supports IPv4 and IPv6 outputs, as well as full integration of DVB-S2 multistream, including null packet reinsertion and output realignment, decreasing CAPEX and OPEX for cable and satellite providers.

DVB-S2 Modem SK-DV Combined Data and Video Modem

Reportedly ideal for operators relying on a hybrid infrastructure that requires TS and IP interfaces, WORK Microwave’s DVB-S2 Modem SK-DV utilizes DaVid technology to simultaneously transport data (network connection) and live broadcast (video content) over a single satellite carrier, aggregating multiple MPEG transport streams and IP data into a unified DVB-S2 multistream. Visitors to the Work Microwave booth can learn more about the modem’s powerful feature set, including VideoACM, traffic shaping, cross layer design, Generic Stream Encapsulation, and OptiACM, which maximise data throughput and bandwidth use while reducing OPEX and CAPEX.

DVB-S2 IP-Modem SK-IP Integrated With Xiplink TCP/QoS Feature 

Work Microwave will demonstrate its DVB-S2 IP-Modem SK-IP, which harnesses XipLink traffic shaping and WORK Microwave OptiACM functionalities to optimise throughput and increase network bandwidth for service providers, corporate networks, and telcos. During a live demonstration, visitors can experience firsthand the ACM functionality of the IP modem by viewing an interactive test setup that shows how it compensates for disturbances in the satellite link caused by physical conditions such as humidity and atmospheric precipitation.

Fifth Generation Frequency Converter Series 

At CABSAT 2013, Work Microwave will showcase new enhancements to its next-generation frequency converter series designed for applications that require low phase noise, ranging from S-band to Ka-band. Utilising a sophisticated new synthesizer, the frequency converters can deliver phase noise at a level that significantly exceeds the respected industry standard according to Intelsat’s Phase Noise Specification, IESS-308/309.
