Rennes (France), September 06, 2017TeamCast, the world-renowned leader in digital modulation technologies for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), Wireless Transmission and Satellite Applications, is introducing SmartGate, a DVB-S2/S2X satellite modulator that embeds an advanced powerful filtering & routing process and a layer 2 & 3 optimized encapsulation with full management of PSI/SI tables.

SmartGate is a real IP & Ethernet Gateway with ultra-low latency for satellite access. It also offers an optimal bandwidth management and an NCR process to provide frequency synchronisation to remote devices.

SmartGate has been chosen and adopted by Eutelsat and is used as key element in their V-SAT SmartLNB solution: a new and cost-effective V-SAT technology for satellite Machine-to-Machine (M2M) applications and for backhauling Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures.

“SmartGate is part of TeamCast’s strategy to extend its satellite modulator range beyond pure broadcast applications such as Contribution, Direct-to-Transmitters and Direct-to-Home. With emerging applications such as for Machine-to-Machine and IoT, there is quite a wide new market for our advanced and proven range of modulators” says Christophe TROLET, Head of Business Unit at TeamCast.
