Rennes (France), October 25, 2016 – TeamCast, the world-renowned leader in digital modulation technologies for Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), Wireless Transmission and Satellite Applications, announces it has been selected to contribute to the Magellan project.
The Magellan project will be conducted by the French Space Agency (CNES) and involves several international leaders of the Satellite Industry, namely Thales Alenia Space. The focus of the project is building and testing the ground segment of an advanced, broadband and broadcast access network.
Using High Throughput Satellites, the project is investigating and testing very high-speed Internet access and broadcast services to areas where no high speed ADSL or fibre is available.
TeamCast will provide the HTS modulation – based on its latest TYGER wideband modulator – as well as the digital pre-corrector of the linear and non-linear elements of the complete transmission chain. Specifically the 500 Mbaud capability and the DVB-S2X / Annex M / GSE features of TYGER will be at the heart of the direct link modulation section of the broadband access network.
« The participation of TeamCast in the Magellan project confirms the value of its investment and expertise in High Throughput Satellite transmission» says Christophe Trolet, head of the Satellite Business Unit at TeamCast. « We are very excited to contribute to this challenging and promising project which will drastically increase consumer bitrate and which will drive future revenue of the satellite operators.» he adds.
