Raisting, Germany (PRWEB) June 11, 2013
EMC Satcom Technologies, a satellite technology innovator and subsidiary of Emerging Markets Communications ®, announced today its partnership with O3b Networks to engineer and deliver a cutting-edge signal processing technology, ‘MEO Booster™’ designed to increase the performance and efficiency of satellite links. By increasing throughput, end-user customers receive a 50% higher performing link at a lower cost per bit.
The MEO Booster™ is a patented technology that will manage the seamless switch-over between the Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites used in O3b’s network, in the radio frequency (RF) layer. The technology is compatible with standard satellite modems, enabling customers the flexibility to select devices that are a good fit for their business.
“We are dedicated to developing innovative technology to stay ahead of customers’ demands," said James Alderice, Vice President of Emerging Markets Communications. "Collaborating with O3b enabled each company to bring expertise and strategic development to invent a solution with the customer in mind. The MEO Booster™ harnesses the unique advantages of O3b’s network architecture with EMC Satcom’s technology to drive further efficiencies into the service.”
“Even with the launch of the first O3b satellite less than two months away, we are always seeking to innovate within the network and this partnership with EMC Satcom is testament to that,” commented Dr. Ashok Rao, VP of Product Development for O3b Networks.
In combining co-located antenna apertures, the MEO Booster™ is able to increase remote receivers’ C/N by nearly 3dB. This results in a link performance improvement of 30-50% when combined with latest modem technologies like adaptive coding modulation ( ACM). Additionally, the MEO Booster simplifies the topology of the customer terminals and the O3b gateways by reducing the number of demodulators required.
