Key Product Highlights

DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator

Leveraging video and IP technologies, WORK Microwave's DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator enables operators to maximize satellite bandwidth, enhance data transport, and dramatically improve satellite signal quality. Perfect for IP network links and TV contribution, the DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator offers a wide range of innovative features, including DVB-S2 multistream, TSoIP, and wideband (up to 80Mbaud), and carrier ID support. In addition, the DVB-S2 Broadcast Modulator platform supports next-generation DVB-S2 extensions, providing operators with a future-proof solution.


At ANGACOM 2014, WORK Microwave will highlight its DVB-S2 IP-Modem SK-IP, which harnesses XipLink traffic shaping and WORK Microwave's OptiACM functionalities to optimize throughput and increase network bandwidth for service providers, corporate networks, and telcos. Through the IP modem's ACM functionality, operators can automatically compensate for disturbances in the satellite link caused by physical conditions such as humidity and atmospheric precipitation.

Fixed Frequency Block Converter Series

WORK Microwave will also show improvements to its Fixed Frequency Block Converter Series, including up to Ka-band support for uplink and downlink services, superior phase noise, and adjustable slope compensation. Thanks to the new enhancements, operators can boost the performance and bandwidth of satellite communications links to deliver a superior signal quality in the most cost-effective manner possible.

A new compact, multichannel module design allows operators to support up to four channels within 19-inch housing. This significantly lowers users' operational expenses while saving valuable space. Through the Fixed Frequency Block Converters' unique four-channel design, satellite operators have access to the full capacity of the Ka-band, spanning 27.5GHz to 31GHz (3.5GHz). The frequency converter series is the ideal solution for operators looking to expand their satellite capacity into next-generation spectrums like Ka-band to support high-bandwidth telecommunications and broadcast services.
