Benefits Features
Smart design with great scalability A hub chassis enabling multiple in- and outbound networks on 5 satellites. The compact design enables clients to start with a smart and feature-rich solution when building new networks, while offering all the required functionalities such as integrated IP routing, TCP/IP acceleration, advanced QoS, and encryption.
Maximum Flexibility The hub is highly flexible, supporting the entire array of topologies and access schemes including star, mesh, SCPC, deterministic MF-TDMA and TDM or DVB-S2/ACM all in the same chassis. Bandwidth can be increased on the fly from 64 kbps to 20 Mbps on the outbound and 64 kbps to 11 Mbps on the inbound.
Greater efficiencies through Bandwidth Optimisation The most advanced built-in QoS functionality. End-to-end VLAN (802.1q) support. Increased quality of service levels. Bandwidth optimization and traffic prioritization.
Ease of mind with built in redundancy Uncompromised reliability is achieved through redundant hub components. The IDU controller continuously monitors various critical parameters and automatically switches to the alternative path, should the path currently in use, experience a problem.
Network Managed System The NMS enables all essential configurations, monitoring, and control operations of the VSAT network infrastructure and IP service delivery from a centrally-located network operations center (NOC). The NMS is scalable and flexible: A single NMS can support multiple hubs for virtually unlimited scalability; a hub can support multiple NMS systems allowing the provisioning of multiple networks, managed by HNO and VNO management systems. Every NMS can support multiple shared and private networks, on different satellites, transponders, satellite bands (C, Ku, etc.) that scale from 10s to 1000s of remote sites
