UHP Networks, a Canadian manufacturer of advanced VSAT systems has announced the release of a new Wideband (WB) platform. This will be used in the company's high performance VSAT hubs and high-speed SCPC trunking modems.
The new product has three times greater capability in data throughput compared to the current UHP platform. This makes for a significant enhancement of the UHP SCPC trunking modems and of the HTS series of multi-satellite USHP hubs. These have been successfully deployed in over 60 networks around the world already.
Among its features, the WB platform series consists of pre-correction to enhance operation, DVB-S2X carrier with up to 200 Msymbol/s, full compatibility with UHP-100 and UHP-200 series of remotes terminals, compatible smart redundancy architecture and load balancing across multiple time-slices.
UHP's new product aims to minimize the utilization of WB satellite transponders. By doing so, HTS operators can then combine different services and applications in just one carrier.
Dr. Vagan Shakhgildian, the CEO of UHP Networks said "This is the next step in expanding capabilities of UHP Hubs and modems. It positions our customers well for rolling out networks over High-Throughput and Very High-Throughput Satellites, both geostationary and non-geostationary. In particular, the platform is well suited for the feeder and trunking links in the emerging LEO/MEO systems."
