Ericsson RX8200 Receiver Fully Configurable Online

The Ericsson RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver is now fully configurable on the Satcom Resources website. Only pay for the options you need.

Broadcasters’ requirements for differing equipment configurations and the many and varied ways in which receivers are used is driving the need for a flexible receiver platform. The Ericsson RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver has been designed to precisely meet these requirements.

By allowing each individual RX8200 to be configured and tailored to the user’s precise needs the perfect balance of functionality and cost can be achieved, resulting in a unit having only the required features without the additional expense of superfluous connectivity or functionality.

The RX8200 offers a vast and sophisticated array of configuration possibilities allowing it to cover a broad range of applications. The RX8200 can be tailored to standard definition or high definition uses with MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 decode technology whilst connectivity into the receiver is achieved with DVB-S2 satellite, IP and ASI options.

The high powered processing capabilities of the RX8200 enable the unit to be simply and easily upgraded in the field with additional software options to increment the functionality at any point after initial installation.

A New Receiver With an Unrivalled Pedigree

The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver is Ericsson’s fourth-phase receiver that builds on the success and knowledge of previous generations of products to ensure an unrivalled level of quality and reliability.

Increased Distribution Capacity and Efficiency

The RX8200 Advanced Modular Receiver, in combination with Ericsson’s MPEG-4 AVC Encoders and DVB-S2 PREKOR™ satellite modulators achieves a level of bandwidth efficiency that is unrivalled allowing more HD services per transponder compared with any competing solution.

Wide Choice of Inputs and Outputs for Enhanced Connectivity

The RX8200 can be integrated into a variety of system architectures, including ASI, IP and satellite delivery systems through a choice of input and output modules. The receiver offers a multitude of IP, audio and video outputs for high quality delivery to all major onward networks.
Simplified Control and Lower Cost of Operations
Organizations with large populations of RX8200 Advanced Modular Receivers or other Ericcsonreceivers can simplify control by integrating with the Ericcson Director control system. Director provides remote, over-air, single-view control from a central location, reducing the need for on-site local operators.

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.

Comtech Radyne DMD2050 Universal Satellite Modem

The Comtech Radyne DMD2050 Military Standard Universal Satellite Modem is designed to comply with the widest possible range of
U.S. Government and commercial standards and is compatible with a largest number of satellite modems in the industry.

This item is now configurable for easy on-line purchase!

The DMD2050 provides highly advanced and bandwidth-efficient forward error correction (FEC). Advanced FEC options include Turbo Product Codes (TPCs) and Low Density Parity Check (LDPC). Legacy support for Viterbi, Trellis, Concatenated Viterbi Reed-Solomon, and Sequential FEC are also included. A complete range of modulation types is supported including BPSK, QPSK, OQPSK, 8-PSK, 8-QAM, and

Advanced FEC and modulation capabilities are integrated with the revolutionary DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth compression allowing for maximum state-of-the-art performance under all conditions. This combination of advanced technologies enables multi-dimensional optimization, allowing satellite communications users to:

  • Minimize required satellite bandwidth
  • Maximize throughput without using additional
    transponder resources
  • Maximize availability (margin) without using
    additional transponder resources
  • Enable use of a smaller BUC/HPA and/or
  • Or, a combination of the above to meet
    specific mission needs

Data rates range from 2.4 kbps to 52 Mbps and symbol rates from 4.8 ksps to 30 Msps.

The modem provides a standard MIL-STD-188-114 (EIA-530 / RS-422), serial interface. It can optionally be configured with EIA-613 (HSSI), G.703 (T1/E1/T2/E2 & T3/E3), DVB ASI/SPI and 10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet Interfaces. Drop & Insert functionality is supported on the G.703 interface.

A dual IF interface supports low IF (52-88, 104-176 MHz), and L-band (950-2000 MHz) frequency ranges.

Cost-effective, ultra-high reliable systems are enabled in conjunction with the RCS-11 1:1 redundancy switch, and/or the RCS-20 M:N redundancy switch.
