Q-Lite Compact Satellite Modem implements beacon receiver mode


October 10, 2016


The Q-Lite modem now offers a beacon receiver mode of operation. The beacon receiver detection capability has been added to the existing built-in web spectrum monitor tool and allows a satellite beacon transmission to be detected down to very low signal levels. The beacon receiver support in the modem can help with automatic antenna pointing when attempting to lock onto a satellite. This modem feature negates the need for a separate beacon receiver. The feature is also available in the Q-Flex satellite modem.


The Q-Lite modem has been successfully integrated into a wide range of OEM satellite products such as flyaway terminals and this latest feature increases its specialised support for the OEM market.
