  • Easy integration with terrestrial IP data networks
  • Easy operation through secure frontpanel, SNMP, HTTP and CLI interfaces

The MDM6000 modem is typically installed at both ends of a point-to-point satellite link or at the remote sites of a star network. The unit can work as a modulator, demodulator or modem depending on the network configuration and integrates seamlessly with terrestrial IP networks and equipment. The modem is in full compliance with the DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X standards to achieve barrier-breaking efficiency at maximum service availability.

Efficiency at the core

The Newtec MDM6000 Satellite Modem combines a number of innovative elements to improve current market available efficiencies, thereby lowering the overall Total Cost of Ownership.

New modulation and Forward Error Correction (FEC) codes in combination with innovative technologies such as 133 Mbaud, built-in Bandwidth Cancellation, Clean Channel Technology®, FlexACM®, QoS, and Equalink® pre-distortion.

Depending on the application, the migration scenario and the activated features the Newtec MDM6000 modem can be used in conjunction with the Newtec HUB6000 Satellite Hub. In all cases end-to-end efficiency over satellite can be achieved.

When ultra-high speeds are required...

In applications demanding higher speeds and packets-per-seconds processing than those offered by the stand-alone MDM6000, the MDM6000 High Speed solution can be used. It adds an external packet processor that handles shaping, bandwidth management and encapsulation to achieve up to 850 Mbps and 800 kpps duplex.
