Advantech Wireless, a global leader in satellite broadband communications solutions, announced today it has received a new order for its 2.5kW C-Band Outdoor Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) System from a major satellite service provider for use in their globalized network. The system has built-in redundancy with soft failure mode and it is able to operate simultaneously on both polarizations or on a single polarization with double amount of power.
“We are proud to develop best in class innovations,” stated Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless. “These very high power, wide bandwidth, all outdoor ruggedized systems, will generate major OPEX savings to the end customer. It will allow operation over the entire C-band spectrum with multiple carriers, and outstanding linearity.”
Steve Richeson, SVP of Global Sales at Advantech Wireless also offered, “Traditional klystron and high power filter-combining networks are expensive, susceptible to failure, and contribute significantly to the HVAC and backup power requirements for earth stations. Based on the cost savings and performance improvements from these next generation amplifiers we see an expanding demand for new and replacement High Power Outdoor SSPAs for commercial, military and institutional earth stations in all of geographic markets.”
The design of the 2.5kW C-Band Outdoor SSPA is based on Advantech Wireless’ industry-proven reliable Solid State Power Amplifiers and over 25 years of experience with high-reliability systems.
