Multi-mode News Hub Transmission Platform
Multi-Mode Mobile Transmit System
Vislink’s IPLink 3.0 is the next-generation, ATSC 3.0-ready digital microwave system that has been specifically designed to meet broadcasters’ studio-to- transmitter requirements. IPLink 3.0 allows the broadcaster to smoothly migrate from the traditional ASI transport platform to a future IP-centric system architecture. IPLink 3.0 combines the features of an all-indoor broadcast digital microwave point-to-point radio system with the modern efficiencies of a high-capacity long-distance bi-directional IP microwave radio design.
The streamlined physical layout of IPLink 3.0 includes single enclosure TX/RX transceivers with front-panel touchscreen displays that monitor key performance and alarm metrics. The rear chassis input/output interfaces include space-efficient RF channel filter mounted branching assemblies.
The IPLink 3.0 system delivers ultra-high linear RF output performance coupled with the reliability that LDPC forward error correction (FEC) affords in controlling errors in data transmissions over long or unreliable microwave paths.
IPLink 3.0 offers increased data throughput by utilizing modulation architectures up to 1024QAM and XPIC (cross-polarization interference cancellation). XPIC is a spectrally-efficient technique that doubles data rates by simultaneously operating on both horizontal and vertical polarizations using the same channel frequency. XPIC is highly beneficial when only one channel frequency per path is available.
Systems are available in both protected (1+1, hot-standby) and non-protected duplex configurations and can be designed for simplex operation, including spatial diversity receive systems*.
(*Seamless switching available in protected spatial diversity receive system configurations only.)
