Newtec uses Intelsat transponder to achieve high bidirectional, unidirectional throughput

Satellite communications specialist Newtec has demonstrated 372Mb/s bidirectional throughput and 313Mb/s unidirectional throughput over a 72Hhz Intelsat Ku-transponder, the company reports.

During the test an Intelsat 72MHz Ku band transponder was saturated using Newtec’s latest modem technology and a 4.5m antenna. The result using wideband, Clean Channel Technology (CCT) and Newtec’s Equalink technologies was 313Mb/s throughput.

The test did not include the use of the upcoming DVB-S2 modulation and coding extensions that Newtec’s 200-head engineering team is working on.
When adding a return carrier within the same transponder and Newtec’s second-generation Bandwidth Canceller (ZN781), 372Mb/s was reached.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
