'Flexing Its Muscle': Latest Q-Flex™ Modem Passes 91.8 Mb/s of Accelerated IP Traffic Without any External Hardware - at a Fraction of Competitor's Cost
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. --(Business Wire)--
Paradise Datacom's Q-Flex™ satcom modem demonstrated its unique
value proposition again recently when it passed 91.8 Mb/x of TCP
accelerated IP in a performance test against the incumbent modem
currently used by a major Atlanta teleport. Unlike industry
provides IF and L-band operation in a single unit without the need for
any additional hardware. Teledyne Paradise Datacom is a business unit of

As part of a "technology re-fresh" at the teleport, the competitive
performance measurements were taken using both iPERF and WAN-Killer
testing progams for an IF-up / L-band down operation.
The Q-Flex modems, priced at less than half the cost of the incumbent
modems, were configured with DVB-S2, 16APSK, 5/6 FEC and Teledyne
Paradise Datacom's proprietary XStream IP™ feature set which includes
embedded TCP link acceleration and custom PXE encapsulation. The modems
generated a pair of 96 Mb/s carriers that were placed on 36 MHz
"It was great to have an opportunity to demonstrate that our Q-Flex
modem could pass over 90 Mb/s of accelerated TCP traffic over satellite
without the need for any external hardware," said Tony Radford, Vice
President of Sales and Marketing. "Each carrier was placed within the
confines of a 36 MHz transponder, but truth be told, if additional
features of our modem were employed, we could place both carriers in a
single transponder for an additional 50% savings. Time and time again,
our Q-Flex modem has proved its ability to deliver exceptional value."
Q-Flex™ reflects a leading-edge concept in SCPC modem technology, that
of a "flexible, software-defined modem" with a universal hardware
platform. A true 'one size fits all' modem, Q-Flex is packed with
bandwidth-efficient features and other innovations making it high value
out-of-the-box. However, features such as higher data rates, carrier
cancellation, higher modulation, and are obtained with simple,
convenient software upgrades.
The modem's extremely powerful processor makes it the ideal candidate to
handle IP traffic. It can be fitted with virtually any type of
terrestrial interface, and its 'future-proof' hardware design protects
your capital investment by allowing full functionality upgrades over a
projected lifetime of 10+ years.
Additional Q-Flex features include XStream IP's TCP acceleration, header
and payload compression, dynamic routing, traffic shaping, encryption,
and ACM; optimized spectral roll-off for up to 20% bandwidth savings;
other bandwidth-saving features like Paired Carrier™ and FastLink™ LDPC;
the LinkGuard™ signal-under-carrier interference detection tool;
built-in spectrum and constellation monitors; and modulation up to 64QAM.
