Companies Demo High-Throughput Data Transmission Via a Single Wideband Carrier Designed to Work at Sea in Any Type of Weather Conditions
HOLZKIRCHEN, Germany — Dec. 11, 2019 — WORK Microwave, a leading European manufacturer of advanced satellite communications equipment, today announced the results of its technology demonstration with Intellian and Telesat to increase the reliability, performance, and throughput of broadband for maritime applications. Recently, the companies successfully tested a high-throughput data link from Mount Jackson, Virginia to Pompano Beach, Florida using WORK Microwave’s AX-80 wideband modem, the Intellian v150NX 1.5m Ka-band wideband antenna, and the Telesat T19 VANTAGE High Throughput Satellite (HTS). During the demo, a wideband 215 Msps single carrier with 225 MHz total bandwidth was used and data rates of 400 to 600 Mbps were achieved under ACM at any type of weather conditions.
“Having a high-throughput satellite solution at sea is critical for the cruise industries,” said Joerg Rockstroh, director, digital products at WORK Microwave. “Working together with Intellian and Telesat, we are excited to offer a highly secure, resilient, and bandwidth-efficient solution for maritime satellite communications applications. During the test, we delivered 400 to 600 Mbps from a single carrier in partially harsh weather conditions, which is unprecedented in the satcom market.”
The maritime market is handling a growing amount of data, creating a requirement for reliable, cost-effective satellite communications systems. Seamless integration between WORK Microwave’s AX-80 wideband modem, Telesat’s T19 VANTAGE HTS, and Intellian’s v150NX Ka-band antenna ensures that maritime users are well equipped to address these challenges.
WORK Microwave’s AX-80 wideband modem supports 500 Msps bidirectional throughput, enabling exceptional spectrum output and high-quality signal transmission. Featuring a flexible, scalable design, the modem offers full throughput with 256APSK and 3 Gbps per direction without any compromises or tradeoffs. Using the AX-80 wideband modem on Telesat’s Ka-band HTS, maritime users can optimize the use of high-speed, IP-based broadband access.
Telesat’s T19 VANTAGE satellite operates from a prime orbital location of 63 degrees west, delivering unparalleled capacity, performance, and value for satellite broadband requirements at sea across the Americas and Atlantic. Intellian’s v150NX is the world’s first and only 1.5m Ku-to-Ka convertible VSAT for reliable, high-throughput broadband at sea.
