Is this going to be a dedicated (SCPC) circuit, or are you jumping on to a hub operators's network?
If you are building out a dedicated link, then you are going to be running an SCPC, or single-channel-per-carrier modem. If you are going on a hub, then you will need a modem that is compatible with that hub. Newtec's dialog platform, Comtech EF Data's Heights platform, UHP's Romantis platform, Hughes, Idirect and Gilat are all examples of Hub Type Platforms. If one of those Hubs sounds like what you are on, then you should contact your HSP (Hub Service Provider) and they can tell you what kind of modem you will need.
