iDirect Evolution X5 Satellite Router Modem

TheiDirect Evolution X5 is a next-generation satellite router, designed specifically to support business-critical applications.

The X5 is ideally suited for broadband applications such as enterprise connectivity, cellular backhaul, maritime, secure banking, and other mobile applications.

The Evolution X5 features iDirect’s highly efficient implementation of the DVB-S2 standard with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) on the outbound carrier. Along with deterministic MF-TDMA technology and 2D 16-State FEC on the inbound, the Evolution X5 maximizes the efficiency of satellite capacity to enable new opportunities.


  • Supports topologies: Star and
    SCPC-return* upstream channels
  • Two modes of operation: iNFINITI
    and DVB-S2/ACM outbound
  • Next-generation, extemely
    efficient 2D 16-State inbound
  • Advanced QoS and traffic
  • Optional Spread Spectrum
    waveform technology supports
    very small antennas
  • Optional AES 256-bit encryption

Avcom SNG-2500C Rack Mount Spectrum Analyzer

The Avcom SNG-2500C Rack Mount Spectrum Analyzer is a great answer to the discontinued Tektronix 1705A with a feature set that is second to none giving the Satellite Technician a very useful tool for finding and peaking on satellites.

The SNG-2500C is not only a spectrum analyzer, but also a carrier monitor with features such as carrier masking, screen shot capture and recording, Satellite ID, and Automated Data Acquisition (DAQ) with tolerance comparison and integrated email alerts only to name a few. The SNG-2500C also offers L.O. Frequency Offset which allows the operator to display the frequency in L-Band, C-Band, X-Band, Ku-Band or Ka-Band, or any custom band needed.

The new SNG-2500C was designed with excellent frequency and amplitude accuracy as well as a wide variety of resolution bandwidth selections ranging from 10kHz to 3MHz. This is required to allow for viewing and monitoring of small TT&C and data carriers found in many satellite communications markets today. The front panel has independent control of Frequency & Span with settings for Fine, Medium and Coarse to allow the operator to dial into the carrier and control the display as needed.
