Newtec product wins satellite markets and research vision award

The Newtec MDM6000 Satellite Modem, a new generation satellite platform, has won the Satellite Markets and Research Most Innovative Product Award. Through the combination of new high speed and efficiency technologies, the modem achieved the world speed record earlier this year.

Slava Frayter, VP Americas, accepted the award on behalf of Newtec at the Satellite Markets and Research Vision Awards reception during SATCON2012 in the Javits Convention Center, New York City (see picture).

The Newtec MDM6000 Satellite Modem was launched in September 2012 and completes Newtec’s modem portfolio to cover all IP applications and any speeds. This particular modem handles data rates up to 380Mbps in each direction.

The high-speed MDM6000 modem is in full compliance with the DVB-S2 standard and already supports the upcoming S2 Extensions. Newtec has teamed up with other DVB-members in order to define and develop the update on the DVB-S2 standard.

Newtec’s contribution to the standard has resulted in new satellite transmission technologies that are already implemented in the MDM6000 Satellite Modem. Those technologies include smaller roll-offs, advanced filtering, more and better MODCODs, FEC upgrades and wideband support (72Mbaud).

Standards are crucial for the healthy and profitable growth of the satellite industry. By improving satellite transmission technologies and by sharing the basics of those technologies through standardisation, the industry as a whole will be able to grow in a profitable way.

The efficiency technologies contributed by Newtec to the new DVB standard boost the satellite link up to 20% in Direct-To-Home networks and 64% in other professional applications compared to DVB-S2. These gains already exceed the results by proprietary systems in the market today.

For more information on S2 Extensions please refer to the white paper ‘S2 Extensions Demystified’ online through http://newproducts.newtec.eu/s2-extensions.
