On The Show Floor... Speedy Nexgen Broadcasting Datalink Solution To Be Demo'd By Advantech Wireless

During the upcoming IBC2016 event in Amsterdam at RAI, a new high speed broadcasting datalink solution will be presented to attendees by Advantech Wireless.

These new generation of Gallium Nitride (GaN) based SSPAs from Advantech Wireless are designed for 4K/8K Ultra HD transmission broadcasting and are DVB-S2X ready, providing a 70 percent increase in linear transmit power, super high linearity and field proven reliability with a fraction of the size, weight and power.

The new FLS-5000 from Advantech Wireless is the world’s first 500 Msym/S modulator system for broadcasting and broadband services in a single 1 RU unit and uses the time slice number (TSN) concept embedded in the DVB-S2X standard, which enables the sharing of the link among a multitude of service providers. These SSPAs are combined with the new FLS-5000 terminal and are ideal for HTS networks transmitting broadcast, broadband or a mixture of these services. The capability to share a single DVB-S2X modulated carrier among many users for transmissions of up to 500 Msym/S with roll-offs down to 1 percent is unique in the industry.

According to Cristi Damian, the Vice President of  Business Development at Advantech Wireless, the industry is now experiencing fast adoption of the Ultra HD 4K/8K technology, which exceeds by far the earlier HD market acceptance. These new digital broadcasting services will require 4 to 8 times more bandwidth and power. The combination of Advantech's GaN based RF technology for SSPAs and the FLS-5000 modulator system, with very high data rate and very efficient modulation and coding (MODCOD) modes, is a powerful Ultra HD enabling solution, resulting a huge reduction in OPEX and CAPEX.
