Need to generate DVB-S2 signals

I wanted to generate DVB-S and DVB-S2 signals (QPSK, 8PSK, 16APSK, and 16QAM) in the L-BAND (950Mhz to 1950Mhz).  Can the N5182A signal generator could do that?  My goal is to send the generated signal through my satellite equipment (cables, Block Up Converter, Variable Phase Combiner, wave guides, etc) and analyze the signal at the rf sample port of the amplifier.  My next question is what analyzer would I need to compare the original signal with the signal coming out of the amplifier?   Depending on the symbol rate, the maximum bandwidth is supposed to be less than 40Mhz and is typically 36Mhz.
Thank you,
