Aversan was responsible for the turn-key product development of the Wideband Interface (WIF), including product design and hardware and software development of the product. Aversan is partnered with a world-class EMS for the production and manufacturing of the WIF. The WIF allows the selection and operation of either a Wideband Global Satellite (WGS) modem or a Commercial Modem within the Tier-1 supplier’s wideband satellite terminal. The system is based on a commercial configuration, but is modified to utilize the higher frequencies and more stringent specifications of a WGS capable terminal. The WIF is added to minimize hardware and software changes to the present commercial system components and utilizes an integral Ethernet interface that allows communications for control of internal operations and functions.
