FAVNET MCC – As a follow-up to the announcement successful test by NewTec May 15 with a 310Mb payload on 36MHz transponder, service provider GILAT implemented the FlexACM CCT (Clean Channel Technology) by NewTec into their service platform thereby increasing effeciency and performance.

Gilat Satcom’s Customers Across Africa Benefit from Newtec’s Performance Enhancing Technology

Gilat Satcom, an Israeli-based communication provider offering satellite and fibre-based connectivity services in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, has deployed Newtec technology to fully optimise its satellite links for backhauling in Africa on Measat’s Africasat 1, 46° East.
Gilat Satcom upgraded their existing IP trunking network from DVB-S2 CCM/VCM operation to an adaptive ACM environment seamlessly integrating Newtec’s FlexACM® technology (www.newtec.eu/FlexACM). For Gilat Satcom and its customers this technology ensures a more robust link at the highest availability and the most efficient use of the bandwidth.

“Gilat Satcom is committed to providing its customers with the latest technology at affordable prices,” said Ofer Doron, VP of Engineering and Operations of Gilat Satcom. “Deploying Newtec’s FlexACM technology enables us to maximise the throughput of the existing satellite link at all times whilst keeping a robust service in all conditions.”

This proven solution provides the highest throughput in a given leased space capacity to get the most out of this limited resource but being still flexible in matching any possible business model.

“Newtec’s technology, which is being used in this project, boosts the data throughput in Gilat Satcom’s networks,” said Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec. “We are continuously helping our customers to optimise their IP Trunking and IP Backbone network services over satellite and have therefore been able to demonstrate an impressive track record of installations worldwide in Ku-, Ka-, C-band on both geostationary and inclined orbit satellites. We are proud that Gilat Satcom continues to trust Newtec to help them further optimize their transmission services towards their customers.”

Newtec’s FlexACM solution implemented by Gilat Satcom combines a range of different technologies. These include Newtec’s Cross-Layer-Optimization™ (www.newtec.eu/cross-layer-optimizationtm) and Clean Channel Technology™ (CCT, www.newtec.eu/clean-channel-technology).

Through Cross-Layer-Optimization the satellite modulation equipment is in continuous interaction with Newtec’s acceleration, compression, bandwidth management and IP shaping technology. As soon as the satellite link condition changes the link is automatically optimised using Quality-of-Service (QoS) and traffic priority settings. All of this is done without losing any data or connectivity. Cross-Layer-Optimization is unique on the market as it is shaping both the IP and the RF part of the network.

Clean Channel Technology further improves satellite efficiency by up to 15 % compared to the current DVB-S2 standard for IP trunking, backhauling and government networks but also broadcast contribution

Newtec Breaks Ceiling; 2xOC3 on 36 MhZ Satellite Transponder

Newtec breaks speed record, delivering 310 Mbps over 36 MHz Yahsat transponder. Expect commercial availability this year. In what could be considered a ‘world record’ Newtec has demonstrated a 310 Mbps transport over a 36 Mhz transponder. Tests and validations were carried out using existing antennae and power infrastructure on Yahsat’s Y1A. The resulting full duplex STM-1 (2 x 155 Mbps) has never before been achieved on a 36 Mhz transponder. Newtec will be making its next generation technology, capable of enabling these speeds, commercially available during 2012.The link was established using Newtec’s next generation satellite IP modulators and modems in combination with its bandwidth cancellation units (ZN871). The testused Clean Channel Technology™, Bandwidth Cancellation and Wideband (all Newtec Technologies), of which the first two are available and on the market now.Re Blogged from an online article posted on Linked-In by the WTA (World Teleport Association) group. FAVNET does not endorse Newtec by posting this, but expresses this as valuable industry breakthrough technology news.  Kudos to Newtec and their engineering team for breaking the glass ceiling.Michael Creamer – Principal Engineer /Founder FAVNET LLC

SINOVISION – New Satellite Earth Station, Flushing NY

FAVNET was commissioned by EC Video Systems of Manhattan New York to supply and install an auto acquisition satellite dish to their client; US-based Chinese TV Broadcaster “SINOVISION”. This system acquires satellite downlink from their local mobile uplinked productions, feeding their Flushing New York Master Control with local live and on-demand international back-haul program content satellite feeds states Elbert Chan, President of EC Professional Video, Inc. This new system will have its inaugural debut with a multiple camera live production covering the Chinese New-Years’ Parades in China Town Manhattan then Flushing New York the following weekend. New Jersey based Metro-Vision will provide the production and satellite uplink remote services with multiple hard camera locations, anchor booth, and microwave wireless cameras on the streets. SINOVISION personnel will staff, produce and direct the entire live show production events over two weekends.

Commissioning andinstallation was coordinated by founder/partner Michael Creamer for FAVNET. The entire process including pulling and terminating all cables, testing and integration was completed in just 3 days. “The system is portable and can be moved to a new location, should they desire” states Michael Creamer for FAVNET. We knew they were in a major growth mode and may need the flexibility to relocate easily in the future. Special thanks to the entire SINOVISION IT Broadcast team; Jesse Xu, Charlie Wong and Weihua Peng who braved the January (15F) cold and stayed late to complete the cable pulling.

The TracStar® auto acquisition controller/power supply was located in a shared IT rack on the third floor outside the main studio and control room due to the limitation in space and cable lengths that could not exceed 200 feet. The Ericsson (Formerly Tandberg-TV) model RX1290 IRD (Multi-format SD/HD Integrated Receiver Decoder) was placed in the production master control room to decode and feed SDI video with embedded audio to the main switcher. The programming and test with Metro Vision was quick and painless. Typical SD/SDI transmission is carried on DVBS at 9MHZ of carrier bandwidth on “Galaxy” satellite video ad-hock transponders. The RX1290 is capable of decoding the DVBS and DVBS-2 for future HD productions.

SINOVISION has been providing valuable Chinese language news and program content to over 800,000 viewers in the Metro-New York area through several cable providers and one terrestrial transmitter {WMBC} covering New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. With an eye towards the future and expansion plans, FAVNET recommended the AvL Technologies [Model 2060-1220] 2.0 Meter antennae with quick interchangeable feed horn/LNB assemblies for KU-band and C-band makes the platform extremely versatile. With limited satellite experience, we wanted something fully automated and programmable, states Kinwei Foo Production Manager.

Initially the dish is to acquire content downlink and original program content including news in the Metro New York area. Eventually it will be expanded to include an uplink capacity to back-haul feeds to supply content to other international Asian broadcasters. This marks the 20 years of broadcasting states, Phillip Chang, President & founder of SINOVISION. We are looking to develop more content and we’re going live with our news casts in March of this year. Currently SINOVISION broadcast several news casts on delayed broadcast insertion including news weather sports several times daily.
