Sat Link Acquires Quantity Of NovelSat's NS300 Satellite Modems

NovelSat has announced that satellite services provider SatLink Communications has acquired a sizable quantity of NovelSat NS300 satellite modems to enhance the satellite communications solution offering for their maritime customers.

NovelSat, a long-time SatLink partner, has delivered their NovelSat NS300 Professional Satellite Modems to replace existing KU band-based systems and for implementations with new customers. The NS300 Modem is the industry's most flexible, scalable satellite modem, offering a wide range of modulation options and superior link reliability, which make it a good match for any communication application or budget.

Maritime installations are constrained in a number of ways that affect satellite communications. Constant motion and smaller mobile antennas can limit available throughput. Their mobile energy sources require superior energy efficiency. Plus, fluctuating weather conditions can impede signal quality, leading to poor spectral efficiency, reduced throughput and higher bandwidth costs.

The NovelSat NS300 Modem can deliver superior reception quality and higher throughput at significantly lower SNR than similar modems, which makes it possible to use smaller, lighter, lower gain antennas and to increase the satellite coverage footprint, even when reception is impeded by 2 to 5dB more than other systems.

The SatLink solution takes advantage of NovelSat DUET CeC (Channel Echo Cancellation), the industry's only software based band reuse technology. This technology effectively doubles channel capacity in bi-directional satellite links with no need for additional hardware. The NovelSat NS300 also overcomes the challenge of weather fluctuations through the implementation of smart ACM (Automatic Coding and Modulation) which automatically adjusts fade margin to ensure that bandwidth usage is optimized without sacrificing link quality during bad weather.
