WORK Microwave’s AT-61 Satellite Modulator and RSCC-T 1:1 Redundancy Switch Ensure Superior Quality and Reliability for Video Distribution
HOLZKIRCHEN, Germany — May 20, 2021 — WORK Microwave, a leading European manufacturer of advanced satellite communications equipment, today announced that a leading APAC broadcast satellite owner and operator has deployed a comprehensive digital satcom offering from WORK Microwave comprising approximately 200 DVB-S2X modulators and redundancy switch units. The operator is using WORK Microwave’s AT-61 satellite modulators and RSCC-T 1:1 redundancy switches to distribute satellite TV services with high signal quality and unparalleled reliability for its customers.
The key objective of the project was to future-proof the operator’s infrastructure. The operator needed a flexible, reliable solution for its IP-based distribution network. WORK Microwave’s AT-61 satellite modulator now enables the customer to adapt to the industry transformations that are happening and provide streaming services with the utmost reliability and quality. In the future, the operator has the ability to offer IPTV and IP data services, as the AT-61 modulator supports these features.
The AT-61 satellite modulator is based on a powerful architecture that supports the DVB-S2X standard, providing the APAC operator with a future-proof solution with lifetime support. Through an all-IP structure, the platform supports both native network operation as well as data streaming over IP, offering higher modulation schemes up to 256APSK, a finer granularity of ModCods, and advanced filtering. Based on a flexible software platform, the AT-61 modulator allows direct real-time monitoring and can quickly be adapted to any changing requirements.
WORK Microwave’s RSCC-T switch provides 1:1 redundancy for the IP modulator, ensuring that the operator’s video distribution operations go on uninterrupted.
“We’re excited to support one of the world’s leading satellite operators and a longtime customer of ours with the renewal of its broadcast modulator fleet,” said Joerg Rockstroh, director, business development and digital products at WORK Microwave. “With our AT-61 modulators, the operator can continue its legacy of providing premium video satellite services.”
