New NovelSat Multi-Receiver

The cost-effective multi-receiver provides built-in IP processing to handle uncompressed 4K.

The NovelSat NS HUB4000 is a multi-receiver satellite transmission IP unit designed for mobile backhauling and enterprise satellite data transmission network operators. The unit houses four internal Rx cards, each with 8 satellite receivers, packing up to 32 high-efficiency receivers into a single 1U rack-mounted unit. 

A single NS-HUB4000 hub unit can receive data at an aggregate inbound rate of up to 2Gbps. Each of the 32 NS-HUB4000 carriers can simultaneously receive at up to 120Msps per carrier.

The NS HUB4000 interfaces include Ethernet 1G/10G, dual power supply ports, and M&C interfaces such as USB ports and an SD card slot for data import/export, software upgrade and other uses.

It also supports automated hot-standby redundancy plans that eliminate single point of failure without external equipment. In addition to multiple receivers, the NS-HUB4000 is equipped with dual power supplies and dual external interfaces.
