Additionally, the company will be hosting a gathering at CommunicAsia entitled “Less Space Segment, More Throughput” on Thursday, June 19, from 10:00 am to Noon on Level 3 of the conference center, Heliconia Room 3501A. Colin Mackay, Vice President of Modem Engineering for Paradise, will lead guests through a ‘deep dive’ into these advancements in modem technology and how they can be leveraged to make service delivery more profitable to the bottom line. The event is free, and guests may register to attend here.
“The Paradise modem engineering team continues to keep our company and its modem technologies at the absolute forefront of the industry. For example, our flagship modem, Q-Flex, is optimized to facilitate the mass migration to IP as the transport technology of choice,” said Tony Radford, VP of Sales for Paradise. “It can transmit the highest number of packets per second in the least amount of satellite bandwidth, all in a single box and at a fraction of our competitors’ price.”
Among the many topics Mackay will cover at the event and in the booth: the software-defined Q-Flex™ ‘universal modem’; the new highly-efficient DVB-S2X standard; cost-effective point-to-multipoint using the new Q-MultiFlex™ multi-demodulator; Carrier ID; cleaning up links by compensating for the effects of non-linear distortion; the compact Q-Lite™ modem for comms-on-the-move (COTM); the unique Q-NET Bandwidth Manager that solves the VSAT vs. SCPC dilemma for operators; Signal-Under-Carrier interference detection, and much more.
The Paradise line of modem solutions are used worldwide for nearly all satcom applications including cellular backhaul, video broadcasting, airborne and man-pack applications, and more. In addition to highlighting its powerful modem technologies, Paradise will also showcase its PowerMAX™ SSPA system, an ultra-high power SSPA ideal for multi-channel DTV broadcasts and high data-rate IP gateways. PowerMAX amps, based on a complete line of GaN devices, reach unprecedented levels of output power and deliver maximum efficiency and reliability.
Among the Paradise modem technologies that will be displayed:
- Q-Flex, the industry’s most powerful IP-centric, software-defined modem providing IF and L-band operation in a single unit. Q-Flex ‘future-proofs’ your network by doing feature updates with software upgrades via Ethernet or memory stick.
- Q-FlexV, a new video broadcast modem that is specifically tooled for ASI and IP DVB broadcasts and has by far the greatest Performance-to-Price ratio of modem product in the industry. It is a single-box solution supporting both DVB-S2 and its successor, DVB-S2X, operates at data rates up to 155 Mbps, has Dual IF/L-band operation, Carrier ID and more at a fraction of the cost and complexity of alternatives.
- Q-Lite, a compact version of Q-Flex, is a single-board modem for Comms-on-the-Move designed for simple mechanical integration into OEM products. With a form factor of 255mm x 184mm, Q-Lite consumes one-third the power of Q-Flex making it a perfect fit for airborne and mini-flyaway applications.
- Q-NET, a novel bandwidth management system that leverages Q-Flex to deliver to operators both the highly efficient throughput of SCPC and the high utilization of VSAT.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
