The IDLU-UST110-CUO1O-32P is a small form factor Unicable2 multiswitch enabling installations with up to 32 satellite re­ceivers over a single cable based on digital channel stacking technology. Digital channel stacking technology applies digital signal processing after wideband Analog to Digital converters (full band capture) to select and reorder transponder channels.


The selected and reordered transponder channels are up-converted through Digital to Analog converters and stacked as L-band signals over the Unicable output port. Compared with analog channel stacking, which is based on analog frequency translation to fixed frequency slots, the digital channel stacking implementation removes the need of in-band SAW filters, offers a full flexibility of channel selection, supports many more set top boxes through a single coax cable, greatly simplifies installations at subscribers homes all at much lower cost and lower power consumption.


The multiswitch firmware can be configured to deliver a fixed transponder-to-IF frequency mapping and line up to 32 tran­sponders (depending on the bandwidth of the desired transponders) over the Unicable output. This allows for an unlimited number of receivers to be connected to the switch making MDU installations substantially cheaper and simpler than ever be­fore. Operation mode – dynamic or static – output power level, channel bandwidth, UB numbers, center frequencies and dish alignment mode can all be programmed as well.


The multiswitch receives (and cascades) 4 satellite IF bands/polarities (LV, LH, HV and HH) and Terrestrial VHF/UHF signals. Both Unicable and Legacy output ports combines the Terrestrial signal. The Terrestrial signal is not amplified. The multiswitch is pow­ered over the supplied AC/DC adapter and power inserter device allowing greater flexibility in various installation scenarios. The communication protocol between the multiswitch unit and the connected receivers is based on EN50494 and/or EN50607 and can be defined per User Band allowing operators to support installations consisting of both EN50494-only and EN50607 compatible Next Generation PVRs and HGWs.
