Square Peg Communications Delivers IsatDataPro Physical Layer Tester

October 7, 2016

Square Peg Communications Inc. has delivered the first units of an IsatDataPro Physical Layer Tester (DPLT) to Inmarsat for use in testing the physical layer performance and protocol implementation of Mobile Terminals implementing Inmarsat’s IsatData Pro services.  The DPLT application runs on Square Peg’s generic Physical Layer Tester Multi-Channel Platform (PLT‑M).

It includes a comprehensive satellite channel simulator for the measurement of terminal receive performance, and demodulators and signal analysis software for the measurement of terminal transmit performance.

The DPLT is the latest addition to SPCI's line of Physical Layer Testers for Inmarsat services, which also includes testers for BGAN, Fleet/SwiftBroadband, Classic Aero, Mini-M/M4, and Inmarsat-C.

PLTs are used extensively for equipment development, type approval, and production test of mobile satellite terminals.  Tests can be automated and the results presented in a common format, minimizing the time required to prepare test reports.  A PLT replaces multiple conventional test instruments and employs detailed knowledge of the air interface under test to provide tailored capabilities and insightful analysis facilities.

The PLT-M is a single-box solution incorporating a multi-channel modem, RF interfaces with programmable Tx and Rx attenuators, and a Windows-based controller.  It is available with IF, L-band, and S-band interfaces and is readily adapted to other frequencies and applications.
