ADVANTECH, Once Again, Brings Innovation to Market with Its New DVB-SCPC System Offering

DORVAL, Quebec, Feb. 16 /- ADVANTECH Satellite Networks and ADVANTECH Satellite Equipment, two divisions of Advantech AMT, Inc., have today announced the availability of their new low cost DVB-SCPC system offering. The newly launched system features the world's first dual capability DVB-SCPC & DVB-RCS terminal, SatNet terminal model S5400.

"The DVB-SCPC VSAT system is the right solution to complement our DVB-RCS hub and terminal product line," stated Don Osborne, president of ADVANTECH Satellite Networks. "Customers sometimes require small VSAT system deployments and require the dedicated bandwidth connectivity offered by SCPC remote-to-hub return links. We offer the world's most affordable DVB-SCPC hub and terminal solution, which can easily be upgraded later to a full-featured DVB-RCS system as the customer's network size expands over time."

"ADVANTECH's DVB and SCPC modem business is growing to offer complete system solutions, and our customers will certainly be able to benefit from this", added Vagan Shakhgildian, president of ADVANTECH Satellite Equipment. ADVANTECH offers a complete suite of DVB, SCPC and DVB-RCS IP datacasting and networking solutions.

Costly modem replacements at remote sites are completely avoided. "ADVANTECH continues its tradition of innovation. We have now successfully integrated technologies from our leading edge DVB and SCPC modem product lines together with our Satellite Networks low cost terminal product line," says David Gelerman, CEO of ADVANTECH. "Customers are not locked in anymore with their SCPC equipment investment. Starting with a small SCPC-based network, they can easily migrate to DVB-RCS while re-using the same user terminal equipment and hub outbound DVB equipment."

Orders for SCPC/DVB-RCS hubs and terminals are being taken now. The S5400 terminal product datasheet is available on the SatNet website as is a detailed white paper on IP datacasting and networking which can be downloaded from the corporate site.
