Square Peg Communications Extends Physical Layer Tester Product Line To Inmarsat BGAN

May 27, 2003

Square Peg Communications Inc. (SPCI) has extended its Physical Layer Tester (PLT) product line to support equipment being developed for the Inmarsat Broadband Global Area Network (BGAN) service."

BGAN will allow Inmarsat to deliver Internet and intranet content and solutions, video-on-demand, video conferencing, e-mail, LAN access at speeds up to 432 kbit/s as well as voice communications to approximately 70% of the world’s surface via notebook or palm top computers. A variety of terminal types, ranging from fixed-mounted to notebook (A4) size or pocket (A5) size will be supported.

SPCI’s equipment supports the testing and qualification of both User Terminal (UT) and Radio Access Node (RAN) implementations. It includes a comprehensive satellite channel simulator, which enables the introduction of impairments into the transmitted signal, and signal analysis software, which allows the performance of the transmitter under test to be automatically compared with SDM specifications. It also includes fully compliant modulators and demodulators for physical layer evaluation and over-the-air testing.

Square Peg currently manufactures Physical Layer Testers for all of the modern Inmarsat networks, including mini-M, Global Area Network Mobile ISDN and Mobile Packet Data, Inmarsat-Aero, Fleet F77/F55 and Swift64.
