Satellite Equipment

70 MHz and L-band Satellite Modems
Vitacom features the Datum M500 satellite modem, the most cost-effective full-featured modem on the market. These modems can operate at data rates up to 20 Mbps with BPSK, QPSK, OQPSK, 8PSK, and 16QAM modulations available.

BUC's and LNB's
C and Ku-band BUC's and LNB's are available, covering a range of power levels and stabilities. When combined with an L-band modem and antenna, these result in very cost-effective SCPC earth stations.

Transceivers
Vitacom sells both C and Ku-band transceivers. These are ideal for applications where a 70 MHz interface is required for the modems. Dual-synthesized units with low phase noise are standard. Optional 1:1 redundant systems can be provided.

Antennas
Vitacom can supply a range of antennas, from 1.2 meter Ku-band antennas for TDMA networks through large C and Ku-band hub antennas. Standard remote sizes for Ku networks are 1.8 meter, with 2.4 meter antennas typically used for C-band.
