to 345Mbps, while also being both smaller and lighter in weight.
Expanding on the groundbreaking flexibility the Q-Flex has long been
known for, the 400 Series offers more powerful FPGAs (Field Programmable
Gate Arrays) that will accommodate further firmware upgrades and
features in the future.

“We are also pleased to announce that the new QMultiflex-400 delivers
DVB-S2X on outbound and return carriers as well, in line with the rest
of the Q-Flex range. With this upgrade, customers can rest easy knowing
their Q-Flex
supports the most powerful bandwidth saving technology
available today,” said Mike Towner, Senior Director of Business
Development for Paradise Datacom.

“The new Q-Flex 400 Series operates seamlessly with the current Q-Flex
platform, so customers can continue to optimize operations by simply
adding 400s to their existing network infrastructure,” Towner added.

The 400 Series features Paired Carrier+™, the enhanced carrier
overlap technology pioneered by Paradise which enables transmit and
receive carriers to share the same space segment. The 400s also utilize XStream
more bandwidth-saving Paradise technology including adaptive
coding and modulation (ACM), acceleration, and header and payload

The Q-Flex 400 platform is currently moving through the process of WGS
(Wideband Global SATCOM) certification.

Current Q-Flex modems are factory upgradeable to the Q-MultiFlex
platform by simply adding accessory demodulator cards which enables a
single earth station modem to establish two-way communications with up
to 16 remote sites. The point to multi-point functionality is retained
in the 400 Series with remote sites utilizing a preconfigured version of
the QFlex-400, the QFlex-400 P2MP.

The complete 400 Series is now shipping to customers and includes the
following models: the Q-Flex
, the Q-Multi-Flex
, and the Q-Flex
