Based on Adaptive Cancellation technology by Raytheon
Applied Signal, DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier, based allows transmit and
receive carriers of a duplex link to share the same transponder space.

On the other hand, the CDM-700 modem offers a range of
multi-port data interfaces. The modem operates in broadcast, circuit restoration,
point-to-point and point-to-multipoint applications with exceptional power and
