MDM6000 Satellite Modem


MDM6000 Satellite Modem


The MDM6000 Satellite IP Modem is a versatile next generation modem optimized for a wide range of applications such as cellular backhauling, IP trunking and fiber restoration. The MDM6000 modem is typically installed at both ends of a point-to-point satellite link or at the remote sites of a star network. The unit can work as a modulator, demodulator or modem depending on the network configuration and integrates seamlessly with terrestrial networks and equipment. The modem is in full compliance with the DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X standards, achieving the highest possible efficiency at maximum service availability.

Efficiency at the Core

The Newtec MDM6000 Satellite Modem combines a number of innovative elements to improve current market available efficiencies, thereby lowering the overall Total Cost of Ownership.

New modulation and Forward Error Correction (FEC) codes up to 256APSK in the DVB-S2X standard in combination with innovative technologies such as 133 Mbaud, Clean Channel Technology®, Bandwidth Cancellation (BWC), Automatic Uplink Power Control (AUPC), FlexACM®, QoS, Shaping and Equalink® 3 are embedded in the modem and bring the satellite link to full efficiency.

Depending on the application, the Newtec MDM6000 Satellite Modem can be used in conjunction with the Newtec HUB6000 Satellite Hub. The performance can be increased even more by adding Newtec’s network optimization technologies, such as acceleration, compression and bandwidth management.
