Satellite Communication Products

SED’s line of satellite communication products continues to provide customers with innovative and high-performance units that they use in their networks or integrate into their service offerings.  They also serve as the building blocks for the systems we deliver enabling us to offer a more compelling value proposition based on innovative technology, reduced risk and time to market, and lower costs.

Our line of satellite modulators and related products include the Gemini modulator, Defender and Hercules multi-carrier generator, the narrow-band SDTS modulator, the Itus L-band redundancy switch, and beacon generators.

The Gemini modulator provides DVB-S/S2/S2X, DSNG and Turbo functionality and includes ASI and IP inputs and both IF and L-band outputs.

SED Satellite Modulators









Our Itus modulator redundancy switch provides 1:1 modulator L-band redundancy switching for our modulator products.  The narrow-band SDTS modulator supports the Inmarsat SES28B standard, while our Beacon Generator provides an L-band output that can be frequency converted to the band you need.

Our multi-channel modulator, Defender, is capable of generating up to 32 independent 30 Msps carriers in the 950-1750 MHz band.

Our modulators have a flexible FPGA-based design, which can be leveraged to provide custom modulators for non-standard encoding and modulation types. We can also provide private labelling for OEM products.
