DekTec Unveils Compact Satellite Receiver

LAS VEGAS: DekTec is expanding its network appliance range with the DTE-3137 Networked DVB-S2 Satellite Receiver.

The LNB can be powered from PoE. The hardware is controlled by a web-browser-based dashboard. Standard SNMP offers remote control of the unit and error reporting to an SNMP manager. The front of the unit displays Mode, Carrier, Frequency, SNR, BER, and IP/MAC address for verification of the signal input(s). The unit accommodates up to 24 modules in 3RU rack space. It’s on display in ooth SU6202 at the 2011 NAB Show in Las Vegas this week.
