- Buyers Guide
Teledyne Paradise Datacom LLC, a division of Teledyne Microwave Solutions, will be showcasing in a single booth at IBC 2013 three of the industry’s state-of-the-art products for high power amplifiers, high power Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTAs), and new software-defined modems.
Each product provides a unique combination of power, reliability and flexibility compared to other industry offerings. Perhaps more importantly, each product utilizes milestone achievements in satcom industry technology to give operators new capabilities for the highest quality of service (QoS) at the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO).

Teledyne Paradise Datacom will be using IBC 2013 to announce itself as a new entrant in the expanding market for compact, high power 500 watt Ka-band TWTAs. Next week, TDP will unveil in a separate announcement the details of its new 500 watt TWTA with an industry-first design innovation of great value to both commercial and military Ka-band operators. The TWTA itself will also be showcased in the TPD booth at IBC.
TPD will also exhibit the latest iteration of the industry’s fully software-defined modem, Q-Flex™. With a wide range of new features and capabilities, the Q-Flex maximizes operational flexibility by addressing virtually all satellite modem applications with a single hardware platform. Ideal for cellular backhaul, oil and gas operations and others with remote connectivity needs, the new Q-Flex is packed with bandwidth-saving features, a dramatically reduced FPGA count, and a main processor ten times more powerful than its predecessor.
TDP has also added XStream IP™ to Q-Flex, a new approach to handling IP that gives operators satellite-friendly, highly efficient IP bandwidth optimization and traffic management tools to deliver the promised QoS goods for SLAs. Finally, the Q-Flex includes an innovative new satellite network management system, Q-NET™, developed in partnership with CodeMettle. This state-of-the-art platform is a scalable Multiple-Channel-Per-Carrier (MCPC) Demand-Assigned-Multiple-Access (DAMA) system that delivers a higher level of management by allocating resources “on-demand” from a central pool. All network topologies are supported by Q-NET.
Finally, TDP will feature its modular and field-expandable PowerMAX™ SSPA, the leading choice in high power amps for Direct to Home (DTV) links and other broadcasting applications where QoS is vital. Its modular design means there is no single point of failure with PowerMAX, its components are hot-swappable, and it is infinitely scalable to meet changing and growing network needs. Like the Q-Flex modem, PowerMAX’s flexibility enables operators to ‘future-proof’ their networks, delivering long-term cost savings and making it the perfect choice for operators building out new DTV networks or looking to replace the legacy technology of klystron vacuum tubes.
