It is also DVB-S2X compliant, with new MODCOD, 64APSK
modulation and low Roll-Off values, like the previous model was, for maximum transmission efficiency.
The successful tests included the operation of DVB-S2X carriers with 64APSK
, 128APSK and 256APSK modulation and coding, and roll-off factors of 5%.
MEASAT has announced that customers on the AFRICASAT-1a satellite will now be able to benefit from additional cost savings given the successful test of 64APSK
modulation on the satellite's high-powered pan-African beam.
