WORK Microwave AT80/AR80 DVB-S2X Wideband Modulator/Demodulator

WORK Microwave’s Wideband Modulator provides operators a platform for transferring Transport Streams in DVB-S2 multicast format as well IP/Ethernet data over DVB-S2/DVB-S2X satellite connections. Ethernet frames and IP packets are encapsulated directly within DVB-S2 baseband frames, resulting in low encapsulation overhead. For maximum bandwidth efficiency and ease of operation the device uses Generic Stream Encapsulation according to TS 102 606.

An aggregate data throughput of more than 1 Gbps can be achieved. Symbol rates up to 400 Msps are supported.

The unit is suitable for uplinks of High Throughput Satellites. It supports Broadcast, Broadband or hybrid Broadcast/Broadband systems.


An integrated OptiACM controller provides adaptive or variable FEC- and modulation setting for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint IP applications.


Broadcast Predistortion and Extended Predistortion - operating in the background during regular transmission - mitigates the negative effects in the filters and amplifiers of satellites by automatically compensating for linear and non linear distortions. Subsequently the satellite link can be operated with less back off/higher power and a higher signal-tonoise ratio increases beam coverage ensuring higher throughput and availability for the satellite operator.

High signal integrity

Low spurious emissions make the modem perfect for use in environments with demanding requirements, like high-power uplinks. Sophisticated temperature compensation guarantees output stability over a very wide temperature range.

Operating and control - easy integration into your system

The modem can be operated via push buttons on the front panel using intuitive display menus or via remote control (RS232, RS422/485 and TCP/IP over Ethernet). For the remote control addressable packet-based commands, a Web interface (HTTP browser). Detailed monitoring of system parameters is possible.
