NovelSat—Technology Showcase + Product Debut / Demo @ IBC2014 (Event—SATCOM)

[SatNews] NovelSat has debuted their NovelSat NS300 Professional Satellite Modem, a new, cost-effective entry into the satellite transmission market.

The NovelSat NS300 is a natural choice for data applications that require satellite transfer rates from 64Kbps up to 30Mbps. In full duplex mode, the NS300 can simultaneously send and receive a total of 60Mbps per modem. The NS300 is a member of the NovelSat Professional Satellite Modem Series along with the NS3000 Professional High-Data Rate Satellite Modem (up to 850Mbps). Like the NS3000, DVB‑S2 is the basic satellite transmission standard in the NS300 modem. The NS300 and all NovelSat equipment also support DVB-S, DVB-S2 with 5 percent Roll-off Filter (ROF), DVB-S2X (planned) and NovelSat NS3 which typically boosts spectral efficiency by 30 to 60 percent compared with DVB-S2 equipment.

Equipped for data transmission, the NovelSat NS300 comes with 4 E1/T1 interfaces for cellular backhaul, 2 ASI interfaces for video and Gigabit 1000Base-T. It also has built-in hardware support for LDPC advanced FEC, NovelSat NS3 and NovelSat DUET CeC (carrier-echo-cancellation). All this makes the NS300 the ideal low-data rate modem for cellular backhaul, IP trunking and other data services applications, not to mention a valuable asset for broadcasters’ DSNG units. Similar to the high-data rate NovelSat NS3000 satellite modem, the NS300 includes built-in IP processing features to make data transmission more efficient and cost-effective. The NovelSat NS300 supports point-to-point and point-to-multipoint links and incorporates the NovelSat high-efficiency NSPE™ encapsulation scheme. The NS300 integrated IP processing unit supports a wide range of features such as advanced QoS (Quality of Service), transparent bridging, VLAN switching, routing mode and header and payload acceleration.

The NS300 platform offers a wide range of performance boosting options including ACM/VCM, AUPC (Automatic Uplink Power Control), Carrier ID (CID) compliance and Dual channel support for simultaneous ASI & IP streams. Along with NovelSat modulators and demodulators, the NovelSat NS300 modem is fully interoperable with all NovelSat equipment as well as with other standard satellite gear. These and other unique technologies give the low-cost, high-performance NovelSat NS300 Professional Satellite Modem the highest performance and most compelling ROI for businesses with satellite data transmission needs.
