Advantech to show latest GaN tech at AfricaCom and Global MilSatcom


Company to introduce new generation of GaN based SSPAs and military Grade VSAT hubs with 'on- the-fly' WaveSwitch technology

Advantech Wireless, a satellite communication company, will present details of its second generation GaN-based solid state power amplifiers/upconverters and WaveSwitch 'on-the-fly' SATCOM waveform switching technology at AfricaCom and Global MilSatcom 2017.

At AfricaCom (November 7-9, 2017, CTICC, South Africa), Advantech Wireless will discuss the latest developments of using GaN technology for solid state power amplifiers. According to the company, its technology is suited to a wide variety of commercial and military applications, from Ultra HD TV transmission, SATCOM-on-the-move, internet access for aircraft passengers, and SATCOM manpack terminals.

The new generation of GaN based SSPAs are said to provide higher performance and reliability combined with the smallest form factor and lowest power consumption on the market.

To address the high complexity of new generation multiservice IP broadband satellite deployments, Advantech Wireless introduced WaveSwitch, its multi-service modelling architecture that dynamically optimises waveform assignment to achieve the highest application performance, with minimum satellite bandwidth resources and high network utilisation.

At Global MilSatCom 2017 (November 7-9, 2017. London, UK), Advantech Wireless is presenting details of its new line of GaN based SSPAs for defence communications, along with its Military Grade VSAT hubs with WaveSwitch technology for its ASAT II Multiservice VSAT System.

"As the Satellite Market is evolving, so does the Satcom technology. Applications that could not be addressed in the past, are now possible, with the right combination of network planning and hardware selection. Cost can be drastically reduced, by adopting advanced technology," said Cristi Damian, VP global sales and business development, RF and microwave products at Advantech Wireless.
