WORK Microwave Announces Upgrades

WORK Microwave to Showcase its range of DVB-S/S2/S2X equipment at CommunicAsia2015.

Headquartered in Holzkirchen (near Munich), Germany, WORK Microwave platforms have been deployed around the world to support a range of applications within the broadcast, satellite, and telco markets. WORK will showcase its range of DVB-S/S2/S2X equipment at CommunicAsia2015.

An exhibit highlight will be WORK Microwave's DVB-S2X Broadcast Modulator solution for DTH broadcast, video contribution, and distribution applications over satellite. It comes predistortion-ready for automatic group delay and nonlinearity compensation. Other innovative features include DVB-S2 multistream, TSoIP, wideband up to 80Mbaud, and carrier ID. It supports all DVB-S2X extensions.

A live demonstration of WORK Microwave's DVB-S2 IP Modem will show how it compensates for disturbances in the satellite link caused by physical conditions such as humidity and atmospheric precipitation.

The DVB-S2 series is powered by a combination of video and IP technologies. It includes a variety of sophisticated functionalities, such as DaVid technology, carrier ID, predistortion, and OptiACM. They optimize throughput and increase network bandwidth for service providers, corporate networks, and telcos.

At CommunicAsia, WORK Microwave will also showcase its fixed frequency block converters and a new redundant block converter. It is a redundant switching system and block converter in one unit, increasing operators' efficiencies and cost savings. By consolidating previously separate capabilities into a single, compact, 19-inch housing, the WORK Microwave system reduces power consumption, and provides operators with an innovative approach to 1+1 block converters.

WORK Microwave will demonstrate a range of Redundancy Switch systems supporting 1:1 and up to 8:1 redundancy configurations for converters, modulators, and modems. When operating in automatic mode, an automatic switchover to the standby unit is performed upon detection of an alarm generated by the active unit. Operators can also choose to initiate a manual switchover to the standby unit, if needed. Two power supplies and two AC input connectors guarantee high system
