Advantech Wireless Showcases Record Breaking WSM-5000 Wideband Broadcast Satellite Modulator at 2016 NAB Show

Las Vegas, Nevada – April 18, 2016 – Advantech Wireless, a global leader for High Throughput Satellite (HTS) broadband communications solutions, will be demonstrating at the 2016 NAB Show its new record breaking WSM-5000 DVB-S/S2/S2X High Throughput Wideband Broadcast Satellite Modulator designed to transmit carriers of up to 600MHz.

The WSM-5000 supports single carrier data rate up to 500MSPS (600MHz) with an improved 1% roll-off-factor delivering cost savings of up to 30% in Broadcast and Broadband DVB- S2X deployments.

Efficiency improvements of up to 30% result from the combination of single high throughput carrier operation on a typical HTS transponder, the lowest roll-off in the industry, unpaired signal clarity, low SNR support and the Ultra-Fast ACM+AUPC compensation capabilities of the WSM-5000.

The new Wideband Broadcast Satellite Modulator was developed to meet the needs of Broadcasters as well as Broadband providers. The WSM-5000 supports ETSI EN 302 307 DVB “Annex M” features such as time slicing, to enable the mixing of broadcast and broadband services over the same satellite carrier for improved deployment flexibility; allowing deployment of this efficient transmission architecture in virtually every HTS network.

“The new WSM-5000 High Throughput Wideband Broadcast Satellite Modulator brings unprecedented efficiencies 

and ease of deployment to HTS service operators. Broadcast and Broadband service providers can now fully take advantage of High Throughput Satellite efficiencies, translating economies of scale into bandwidth savings and top-line growth through increased capacity,” said Oscar Glottmann, CMO of Advantech Wireless’ Satellite Networks Business Unit.

This new product will be on display in Advantech Wireless’ booth SU2802 at the 2016 NAB Show in Las Vegas along with a complete range of Broadcast and HTS satellite networking and RF products.
