    About MDM3315
    The MDM3315 is ideal for enterprise, cellular backhaul, maritime, broadcast, and government markets and supports a wide range of fixed IP, mobility, and multicasting services. Peak throughput reaches 150/70 Mbps and the wideband receive capability makes the MDM3315 a perfect fit for usage on HTS/VHTS. The modem’s ease of installation through web GUIs and remote commissioning applications allows services providers to deploy their services quickly, in a cost-effective way.

    The MDM3315 modem is also available as a board level variant, the SMB3315, which is suitable for both fixed and COTM terminal solutions.

    Ready to Upgrade from X7
    The MDM3315 offers several enhancements when compared to the X7, making an upgrade more valuable. Some of these include a dual receiver, higher forward and return throughput, and a 4-port ethernet switch. With software and hardware parity and a similar form factor, the MDM3315 is a welcome upgrade.
