Advantech Wireless—A-SAT™ @ SET EXPO 2014 (Event—SATCOM)

[SatNews] Advantech Wireless Inc., a manufacturer of Satellite, RF Equipment and Microwave Systems, presented a live demo of its Next Generation Discovery Adaptive Satellite Access Technology (A-SAT™) platform at SET EXPO 2014 in Brazil.

Visitors experienced the newest technology of transmitting information from DSNG using A-SAT™ Technology. The Advantech Wireless team demonstrated how it is possible to deploy triple play services: VoIP, data (IP) and video (streaming HD) for DSNG with lower costs and delivering maximum efficiency. The live demo included voice calls, data and HD video streaming simultaneously using SCPC and TDMA channels, switching of traffic between TDMA for SCPC carriers with the continuous support of the service. Ground-breaking technology, delivering best performance, maximum bandwidth utilization and major savings.

A-SAT™ is beyond dual mode DVB-RCS/TDMA-SCPC, it monitors channel utilization and switches the satellite access method and MODCOD for the return channel in real time to dynamically maximize the space segment utilization efficiency. Additionally, by having TDMA and true DVB-S2 SCPC technologies in a single platform, the switch between traffic patterns is efficiently supported and all risks of equipment obsolescence are mitigated.

John Landovskis, Vice President PLM & Business Development, VSAT & Modem Products at Advantech Wireless, said, “Equipment obsolescence is mitigated for new network deployments as the equipment will support either bursty traffic (using MF-TDMA) or streaming traffic (using SCPC) in the most bandwidth efficient access scheme.”
