...DVB makes plans to roll-out extensions to the existing DVB-S2 standard at the end of the summer. The combination of technologies incorporated in the new standard can result in a gain of up to 64 percent compared to DVB-S2. The full findings of the survey will be presented during a free webinar with “take away” copies of the results to be made available to those in attendance. The results reveal the importance of the extensions to the industry, time frame to implementation, and the required improvement in efficiency before companies commit to switching and the potential applications for freed up bandwidth. Newtec’s contribution to the upcoming DVB standard has resulted in a number of technology candidates that are already implemented on Newtec’s newest family member, the MDM6000 Satellite Modem. The modem integrates all S2 Extensions, from smaller Roll-Offs, advanced filtering, MODCOS and FEC upgrades to wideband support.
As well as presenting the findings of the survey, speakers Koen Willems, Newtec Strategic Marketing Director Government & IP Trunking, and Thomas Van den Driessche, Newtec Director of Vertical Markets, will discuss the new technologies. For satellite businesses, the creation and adoption of these extensions will translate to higher efficiency, higher speed and greater service robustness to increase business and, therefore, revenues. This Webinar is a chance for industry professionals to demystify the S2 Extensions and find out how they will be beneficial.
There will be two webinar sessions taking place on Monday, January 28th, to accommodate different time zones at 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Central European Time. To register and attend the free session log on at www.newtec.eu/S2-Extensions-webinar.
