The versatile Newtec HUB6000 is the next generation satellite hub designed for IP applications over satellite in full compliance with DVB-S2
and the upcoming S2-Extensions candidates for improved performance. The HUB6000 merges cutting edge modulation with the unique combination
of IP shaping and satellite segment bandwidth management. The multi‐carrier demodulator unit inside the hub integrates three S2/S2 Extensions
demodulators in one unit which greatly reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Efficiency at the core
The HUB6000 satellite hub embeds the award-winning FlexACM® module. FlexACM® combines a set of advanced technologies which work together
to ensure the satellite link is operating at full efficiency.
These advanced technologies include Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), Cross-Layer Optimization, Noise & Distortion Estimator (NoDE)
and Thin Margin Manager (ThiMM). All of them individually reduce the satellite link margin and contribute to optimize the IP link.
New modulation and Forward Error Correction (FEC) codes up to 64APSK 9/10 (which can be seen as demonstrators for evolutions in extending
the DVB-S2 standard) in combination with innovative technologies such as wideband (up to 72Mbaud), Clean Channel Technology™, and Automated
Equalink® are embedded in the hub and bring the satellite link to full efficiency. By increasing the amount of data that can be transferred
per transponder the HUB6000 effectively increases business opportunities for Service Providers.
The performance can be increased even more by adding Newtec’s bandwidth cancellation and network optimization technologies such as TCP
acceleration and compression.
Newtec’s auto-adaptive technology FlexACM® embedded in the HUB6000 deals with fading conditions (rain, dust, interference) and inclined
orbit satellites with varying throughput patterns.
Thanks to FlexACM® these fading conditions will no longer interrupt the transmission between the hub and remote sites nor result in loss
of data. The maximum possible throughput can be achieved at all times in accordance with Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements.
Flexible business models
The HUB6000 Satellite Hub provides a scalable and flexible platform which allows the customers to grow depending on their application and
The Newtec hub brings the unique bandwidth manager feature where both the IP and satellite segment can be shaped. Individual customers are
added or removed from the same network. Different services (Internet Access, VoIP, etc.) can be combined in the same satellite carrier with
separate Service Level Agreement requirements and rate options. Both Committed Information Rates and Peak Rates are offered in an adaptive
environment at various speeds.
The HUB6000 can be set-up to match the size and the satellite network configuration (one-way or two-way) independent of speed rate,
modulation and amount of return links. Through Gigabit Ethernet interface the Newtec hub integrates seamlessly with terrestrial IP
networks and equipment. Moreover the hub can be coupled with any industry standard EMS/NMS system.
The Newtec HUB6000 Satellite Hub and the market renowned Newtec FlexACM® implementation double the IP throughput over satellite at optimal availability. Optimal efficiency can be kept in adaptive environments with respect for flexible business models.
Lower operational costs thanks to the highest bandwidth efficiency
Automated Equalink® pre-distortion provides up to 10% bandwidth gains and higher Quality of Service
Optimal availability even in fading conditions or with services over inclined orbit satellites
Based on DVB-S2 standards and upcoming S2 Extension candidates for better efficiency (up to 37%)
Clean Channel Technology™ provides up to 15% bandwidth efficiency gains on top of the DVB-S2 standard
Maximum efficiency in combination with bandwidth cancellation and network optimisation technologies
Easy integration with terrestrial IP networks and routers
Unique combination of IP Shaping and satellite bandwidth management
Depending on the application and the activated features, the HUB6000 Satellite Hub can be used in
conjunction with professional modems such as the Newtec MDM6000.

Newtec HUB6000 technology & options
FlexACM®: is the unique and market proven end-to-end solution combining a range of technologies to maximise the
efficiency of IP applications over adaptive satellite links at optimal efficiency
S2-Extensions: are the candidate improvements in the upcoming DVB-S2 standard, including higher baudrates (up to
72 Mbaud), modcods (64APSK), wideband (up to 72 Mbaud), smaller roll-off factors (5%, 10%, 15%) improving overall efficiency
Equalink®: Provides significant improvements by pre-distorting the modulated signal resulting in 10% bandwidth
gains and higher Quality of Service
Clean Channel Technology™: further improves satellite efficiency by up to 15% compared to the current DVB-S2
standard by implementing smaller roll-offs (5%, 10%, 15%), optimum carrier spacing and advanced filter technology.
Through Cross-Layer-Optimization™ the satellite modulation equipment is in continuous interaction with Acceleration,
Compression, Bandwidth Management and IP Shaping technology. As soon as a satellite link condition changes the link will be
auto-optimised following Quality-of-Service and Priority Settings without the loss of data or link.
Bandwidth Cancellation: by combining the forward and return transmissions in the same satellite bandwidth extra
capacity can be made available
Thin Margin Manager (ThiMM): allows setting of a target BER of the link and provides an accurate prediction of
the upcoming variation (depth and direction) of the link condition. As a result, the excess link margin can be kept to the absolute
minimum and further increase the efficiency of the link.
Noise & Distortion Estimator (NoDE): provides the estimation of the amount of linear and non-linear distortion
on the received signal in order to provide the real satellite link margin and helps FlexACM to work at maximum accuracy
