NovelSat Releases NS300X Data-only Satellite Modem for Cost-Sensitive Projects

Full-featured IP modem from NovelSat supports up to 30Mbps data rates with a focus on high-efficiency at lower cost

Ra’anana, Israel, March 2, 2016 – NovelSat, a world leader in satellite transmission technology, has announced the availability of the new NovelSat NS300X IP Satellite Modem. In response to heavy demand, NovelSat designed the NS300X modem specifically for cost-sensitive projects with data-only satellite transmission applications whose operating requirements are below 30Mbps.

The NS300X is a member of the NovelSat Professional Satellite Modem series along with the NS300 IP and Video Professional Satellite Modem and the NS3000 Professional High-Data Rate Satellite Modem (up to 850Mbps). Like the NS3000, DVB-S2 is the basic satellite transmission standard in the NS300X modem. The NS300X and all NovelSat equipment also support DVB-S, DVB-S2 with 5% Roll-off Factor (ROF), DVB-S2X and NovelSat software efficiency packages NS3 and now NovelSat NS4.

NovelSat NS4, the newly released satellite waveform from NovelSat can be added as an optional software upgrade on the NS300X. With NovelSat NS4, the NS300X can boost spectral efficiency by up to 22% compared with DVB-S2X equipment and as much as 45% over DVB-S2.

The NovelSat NS300X supports cost-effective low-data rate applications including cellular backhaul, IP trunking, oil and gas, offshore and remote communications and other data services. Equipped with   optional NovelSat DUET CeC (Carrier-Echo-Cancellation) software, the NS300X will enable up to 50% in bandwidth saving for the same amount of traffic.

The NS300X supports point-to-point and point-to-multipoint links and incorporates the NovelSat advanced high-efficiency NSPE2 encapsulation scheme. The integrated IP processing unit supports a wide range of features including advanced QoS, transparent bridging (Layer 2), VLAN switching (Layer 2), routing mode (Layer 3) and TCP header and payload acceleration.

“We kept most of the advanced NovelSat technologies in the new NS300X, including software upgradable options like NovelSat NS4 and NovelSat DUET CeC,” said Dan Peleg CTO. “But we’ve scaled down the NS300X to fit smaller budgets.”

Next week, NovelSat is inviting satellite communications providers, users and integrators to learn more about the NovelSat NS300X IP Satellite Modem and see live NovelSat NS4 and Interference mitigation technics demos at the Satellite 2016 show, March 8-10 at National Harbor, MD.
