The Newtec Elevation Series EL970 is a state-of-the-art satellite demodulator designed
for IP applications over satellite in full compliance with the DVB-S
and DVB-S2 standards. The EL970 connects directly to terrestrial IP network infrastructures via a single auto-switching Gigabit Ethernet interface. The receiver demodulates, restores and filters the data received from the satellite at rates of up to 133 Mbit/s.
The EL970 comes with several hardware and software options and can be used in Point-to-Point links as well as in Point-to- Multi Point networks. It is compatible with a wide range of encapsulation protocols, among which data piping, MPE, ULE and Newtec’s XPE (Extended Performance Encapsulation). The EL970 is capable of receiving DVB-S2 Multi-stream and VCM streams, and is able to demodulate higher modulation schemes such as 16APSK and 32 APSK.
For maximum bandwidth efficiency, the optional Flex ACM client allows the EL970 to provide feedback on the link condition to an FlexACM controller located at the uplink site, so that the modulation parameters can be adapted automatically and dynamically.
The EL970 has a dual L-band input (950-2150 MHz). The active input is selected by the user and can provide DC power and frequency band selection signals compatible with most professional and commercial LNBs. Optionally, one L-band input can be replaced by an IF (50-80 MHz) input.
The integrated Noise & Distortion Estimator tool provides an accurate reading of the satellite link margin even in presence of non-linear distortion and allows the user to find the optimum input back-off setting very easily for 16APSK or 32APSK operation, whether or not non-linear predistortion is applied .
Combining new innovative features and advanced data encapsulations protocols with DVB-S2 technology, the EL970 ensures the highest bandwidth efficiency available on the market.
