WORK Microwave has announced the results of its technology demonstration with Intellian and Telesat to increase the reliability, performance, and throughput of broadband for maritime applications. 

Recently, the companies successfully tested a high-throughput data link from Mount Jackson, Virginia to Pompano Beach, Florida using WORK Microwave's AX-80 wideband modem, the Intellian v150NX 1.5m Ka-band wideband antenna, and the Telesat T19 VANTAGE High Throughput Satellite (HTS). During the demo, a wideband 215 Msps single carrier with 225 MHz total bandwidth was used and data rates of 400 to 600 Mbps were achieved under ACM at any type of weather conditions.

WORK Microwave's AX-80 wideband modem supports 500 Msps bidirectional throughput, enabling exceptional spectrum output and high-quality signal transmission. Featuring a flexible, scalable design, the modem offers full throughput with 256APSK and 3 Gbps per direction without any compromises or tradeoffs. Using the AX-80 wideband modem on Telesat's Ka-band HTS, maritime users can optimize the use of high-speed, IP-based broadband access.
