Advantech Wireless' U7400 VSAT Router WaveSwitch™ Technology at NAB 

U7400 rack-mountable VSAT Router

So many companies with so many products to 'shout and tout about' at this year's NAB in Las Vegas. Amongst those will be Advantech Wireless at Booth SU3821 showcasing their U7400 VSAT Router which is a high-speed SCPC modem supporting over 100Mbps bidirectional data rates, capable of working point-to-point or as part of a star-based bandwidth on demand VSAT network. 

The U7400 supports Advantech Wireless’ WaveSwitch™ technology in order to switch waveforms between MF-TDMA (DVB-RCS/RCS2), ASCPCTM adaptive SCPC and managed DAMA variable rate Single channel per carrier—SCPC (DVB-S2/S2X). It can be used in an Advantech Wireless 3D BoD™ enabled network as a part of the ASAT II™ platform. 

In an ASAT II™ network all the U7400 supported WaveSwitch™ waveforms share a common bandwidth pool with all the VSATs in the network, supporting multi-service applications ranging from cellular site aggregation to UHD video contribution and distribution links using any combination of the complete range of Advantech Wireless satellite routers.  

Oscar Glottmann, CMO Satellite Networks Business Unit at Advantech Wireless remarked that the deployment versatility of the U7400 VSAT router allows point-to-point deployments where only a few links are required, and the opportunity to scale up to a larger service operation by installing one of the various ASAT II VSAT hubs. Their customers are able to utilize all purchased equipment by simply migrating all U7400s used at the Earth station in the point-to-point links, to become active VSAT routers supporting WaveSwitch™ and 3D-BoD™ with all waveforms, MF-TDMA, ASCPC, and real SCPC.
