Comtech EF Data CDM-750 Modem Fully Configurable

The Comtech EF Data CDM-750 High-Speed Trunking Modem is now fully configurable on our website. You can enter your required options into our Custom Configurator and get an accurate quote within seconds!

The Comtech EF Data CDM-750 Advanced High-Speed Trunking Modem was designed to be the most efficient, highest throughput, point-to-point trunking modem available. The CDM-750 accommodates the most demanding Internet Service Provider (ISP) and telco backhaul links by offering users the most advanced combination of space segment saving capabilities while minimizing the need for unnecessary overhead. With the ability to process packets at line speed, the CDM-750 will not throttle throughput due to processing limitations.
Beginning with the most efficient coding and modulation available, the CDM-750 leverages the DVB-S2 EN 302 307 LDPC/BCH standard to provide the best possible combination of coding and foreword error correction ensuring that the maximum amount of satellite traffic is transported for a given signal to noise capacity.

Implementing Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) operation (in packet-based applications) allows link margin to be converted to user capacity during non-faded conditions by taking advantage of the actual signal to noise ratio rather than calculated worst case signal to noise. This technology transforms link margin, implementation margin and margin for antenna pointing directly to improved throughput.

By using the best encapsulation methods, the CDM-750 further increases throughput by using minimal overhead. In G.703 synchronous mode, users can implement monitor and control over the satellite with no additional overhead. When using Ethernet bridge mode, less than 1% overhead is used for encapsulation.

Xicom XTD-450T1 C/X/Ku Tri-Band Low Profile TWTA (Antenna Mount)

The Xicom XTD-450T1 series are compact, self-contained, antenna mountable power amplifiers designed for low cost installation and long life.

XTD-450T1 Features

  • 325 Watts C-Band
    450 Watts X-Band
    325 Watts Ku-Band
  • Power Factor Corrected
  • High Efficiency Dual-Stage TWT
  • Microprocessor M&C Interface
  • Forward Power Metering
  • Optional Linearizer

The antenna mount design eliminates the need for an amplifier shelter as well as a long waveguide run between the amplifier and the antenna feed; for example, an antenna mounted 350 Watt amplifier with its shorter waveguide run will deliver EIRP compatible to a 600 Watt rack mounted HPA. RF filters, cooling, & monitoring and control systems are all self-contained within the HPA. These features provide high reliability, low maintenance costs, and low replacement costs.

The XTD-450T1 series incorporate high efficiency, dual-stage depressed collector TWTs. Some benefits of the dual-stage collector TWT are: reduced prime power consumption, lower internal operating temperatures, and reliability enhancement. These benefits are obtained for both the linear and saturated modes of operation. One of the features of the XTD-450T1 series is incorporation of power factor correction circuitry that minimizes line current distortion and reduces the required volt-amps. The combination of power factor correction and high efficiency TWT reduces input Volt-Amps by 45% when compared to equivalent amplifiers. A high frequency resonant conversion power supply is used that accepts a wide range of prime power (100 to 260 VAC). The automatic features of the power supply include quick recovery from prime power outages and multiple helix fault resets (three fault cycles).

A complete microprocessor monitoring and control system is built into the unit, including a RS-232/485 remote interface.

The XTD-450T1 series can be configured to single thread or redundant operation.

A remote external controller is available to operate the HPA from a user selected location. Mounting brackets can be supplied to mount the HPA to most popular antennas.

Additionally, the CDM-750 leverages Comtech EF Data’s powerful DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® “Adaptive Cancellation” technology. With the ability to overlay TX and RX carriers, Carrier-in-Carrier enables the operator to establish the perfect balance between bandwidth and power, enabling the best possible use of the satellite resource and reducing operating expenses (OPEX).

These technologies alone offer enormous savings to the ISP and telco operator. When used in combination, however, the savings are astronomical.

The innovative high-performance architecture of the CDM-750 allows efficient networking and transport over satellite links while supporting a wide range of applications and network topologies.
