Newtec MDM6000 Satellite Modem
The MDM6000 Satellite Modem is the versatile next generation modem optimised for medium to high speed IP applications over satellite.
The MDM6000 modem is typically installed at both ends of a point-to-point satellite link or at the remote sites of a star network.
The unit can act as a modulator, demodulator or modem depending on the network configuration and integrates seamlessly with terrestrial
IP networks and equipment. The modem is in full compliance with the DVB-S2 standards and supports the S2 Extensions candidates to achieve
barrier-breaking efficiency at maximum service availability.
Highest speeds and efficiencies available in the market
Lower operational costs thanks to the highest bandwidth efficiency
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 (15-37% depending on link budget)
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
Quality of Service (QoS) for priority settings and optimised traffic flow
Efficiency at the core
The Newtec MDM6000 Satellite Modem combines a number of innovative elements to improve current market available efficiencies, thereby
lowering the overall Total Cost of Ownership.
New modulation and Forward Error Correction (FEC) codes up to 64APSK 9/10 (which can be seen as demonstrator of possible extensions in
the DVB-S2 standard) in combination with innovative technologies such as 72 Mbaud, Clean Channel Technology™, FlexACM®, QOS, and Automated
Equalink® pre-distortion are embedded in the modem and bring the satellite link to full efficiency. By increasing the amount of data that
can be transferred per transponder the MDM6000 modem effectively increases business opportunities for Service Providers.
Depending on the application, the migration scenario and the activated features the Newtec MDM6000 modem can be used in conjunction with
the Newtec HUB6000 Satellite Hub. In all cases end-to-end efficiency over satellite can be achieved. The performance can be increased even
more by adding Newtec’s bandwidth cancellation and/or network optimisation technologies such as acceleration, compression, shaping and
Newtec’s auto-adaptive technology FlexACM® is incorporated in the MDM6000 modem and 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.
Flexibility and scalability matching market’s business models
The MDM6000 modem provides a scalable and flexible platform which allows the customers to grow depending on their application and investment
plan. The platform can start as a modulator or demodulator unit and grow into a modem with different functionalities by simple license
At the output of the MDM6000 Modem, the signal is available in IF or extended L-band (950 MHz-2150 MHz). A switchable 10 MHz reference
signal for an outdoor BUC is multiplexed on the L-band interface. At the receive site the modem has a dual L-band input or optional
IF+L-band input. The active input provides DC power and frequency band selection signals compatible with most professional and commercial
LNBs providing a compact and cost effective solution.
The Satellite Modem can be easily monitored and controlled via a comprehensive front panel menu, advanced web GUI as well as via SNMP
protocol. This enables easy integration into any industry-standard EMS/NMS system.
Support services for your professional equipment
Care Pack Basic and Care Pack Enhanced are the Newtec service and support
packages protecting your Newtec equipment over a three-year period.
The MDM6000 Satellite Modem can be used at both ends of a point-to-point network or at the remote site of a star network. Depending on
the configuration the unit can be used as modulator, demodulator or modem.
