The Comtech SLM-5650BD Satellite Demodulator is a receive only version of our latest generation USARSTRAT WGS certified modem product targeted for critical commercial backhaul and government/military applications. The Comtech SLM-5650BD Satellite Demodulator is fully compliant with MIL-STD-188-165A/B and supports FIPS 140-2 certified encryption. The Comtech SLM-5650BD leverages the heritage and feature set of our very successful SLM-5650B modem. The Comtech SLM-5650BD supports backwards compatibility and inter-operability with existing SLM-5650A networks while providing enhanced performance and new features including:
- Gigabit Ethernet Bridge interface
- LNB reference and voltage
- BUC reference
- Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) resource increased by x5 (future proof)
- Maximum spreading factor (512)
- Maximum chip rate (64 Mcps)
- Maximum symbol rate with LDPC (40Msps)
- DSSS acquisition times (x8 faster)
- Power consumption (reduced ~ 25%)
- Chassis length (reduced 1.5 inches)
The Comtech SLM-5650BD is compliant with the strict requirements defined in MIL-STD-188-165A, modem types I, II, IV, V and VI for applications on DSCS, WGS and commercial satellites. Data rates from 8 kbps to 155.52 Mbps and symbol rates from 32 ksps to 64 Msps are supported. The SLM-5650BD is designed to support cost-effective point-to-multipoint Internet protocol (IP) applications in both Layer-2 bridged and Layer-3 routed networks. The SLM-5650BD can be equipped with either a single 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet interface (standard) or optionally be equipped with a 4-port 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet Network Processor module that supports switching, routing, and advanced Quality of Service protocols.
The Comtech SLM-5650BD can be integrated with the Vipersat Management System (VMS) to provide fully automated network and capacity management (future software upgrade). An AES-256 TRANSEC module, compliant with the FIPS 140-2 standard, is also available as an option. All traffic (including overhead and all VMS control traffic) is encrypted when using the TRANSEC module.
