Advantech Wireless to Show High Speed Broadcasting Datalink Solution at IBC 2016

Montreal, CANADA – August 26, 2016 –  Advantech Wireless, a global leader in satellite broadband communications solutions, will present details of its new High Speed Broadcasting Datalink Solution at the IBC 2016 Exhibition that will take place September 9 – 13, 2016 at RAI, Amsterdam.

The New Generation of Gallium Nitride (GaN) based SSPAs from Advantech Wireless are designed for 4K/8K Ultra HD transmission broadcasting and are DVB-S2X ready, providing a 70% increase in Linear Transmit Power, Super High Linearity and outstanding field proven reliability with a fraction of the Size, Weight and Power.

The new FLS-5000 from Advantech Wireless is the world’s first 500 Megasymbol/second (Msym/S) modulator system for Broadcasting and Broadband Services in a single 1 RU unit. This new system uses the time slice number (TSN) concept embedded in the DVB-S2X standard, enabling the sharing of the link among a multitude of service providers.

The state-of-the-art solution of Advantech Wireless’ GaN based SSPAs combined with the new FLS-5000 terminal is ideal for HTS networks transmitting Broadcast, Broadband or a mixture of these services. The capability to share a single DVB-S2X modulated carrier amongst many users for transmissions of up to 500 Msym/S with roll-offs down to 1% is unique in the industry.

“We are now experiencing fast adoption of the Ultra HD 4K/8K technology, which exceeds by far the earlier HD market acceptance. These new digital broadcasting services will require 4 to 8 times more bandwidth and power,” said Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless. “The combination of our GaN based RF technology for SSPAs and the FLS-5000 modulator system, with very high data rate and very efficient modulation and coding (MODCOD) modes, is a powerful Ultra HD enabling solution. A huge reduction in OPEX and CAPEX is achieved. Satellite and uplink operators are in a position to re-evaluate their broadcasting infrastructure today by using these innovations to enable greater efficiency and cost savings while increasing overall network throughput.”
