iDirect Evolution X5 Satellite Router Modem

iDirect Evolution X5 Satellite Router Modem

Fast performance and high-efficiency IP broadband connectivity for enterprise and mobility networks

 The Evolution® X5 features dual-mode operation of DVB-S2/ACM or iNFINITI® TDM on the outbound and deterministic TDMA on the inbound. With fast processing capabilities, the X5 supports high-speed, high-efficiency applications such as enterprise connectivity, mobile cellular, maritime and other mobile applications.


Product Code: X5


♦ Star topology and future support for SCPC-return upstream channels
♦ Two modes of operation: iNFINITI® TDM and DVB-S2/ACM outbound
♦ Deterministic MF-TDMA return channel with 2D 16-State FEC or TPC on the inbound
♦ Optional integrated spread spectrum waveform technology supports very small antennas
♦ Optional AES 256-bit encryption
♦ Automatic End-to-End Uplink Power Control for higher network availability
♦ Automatic Beam Switching (ABS) and Global NMS support
♦ High-stability temperature compensated oscillator
♦ Overview

The Evolution® X5 Satellite Router enables service providers to support higher data rates and greater traffic volumes to meet increased customer demand across a wide range of growing vertical markets. The Evolution® X5 offers dual-mode operation between iNFINITI® TDM or DVB-S2/ACM on the outbound, providing more flexibility for network design and bandwidth optimization as the network grows. With over-the-air software licensing features service providers can easily add data encryption and spread spectrum capabilities to customize the Evolution® X5 to meet their customer’s growing requirements.

The Evolution X5 offers dual-mode operation between iNFINITI TDM or DVB-S2/ACM on the outbound, providing more flexibility for network design and bandwidth optimization. Whether initially deploying a DVB-S2 network or starting off with an iNFINITI network that is capable of being upgraded to an Evolution DVB-S2 network in the future, the Evolution X5 adapts to a customer’s changing requirements.

With over-the-air software licensing features that can add data encryption and spread spectrum capabilities, operators are allowed even more flexibility to customize the Evolution X5 to meet their technical and budget requirements.

iDirect’s sophisticated Group QoS advanced traffic prioritization dynamically balances the demands of different applications according to their needs and bandwidth availability, across multiple sites and user sub-networks. When combining the Group QoS feature set with DVB-S2/ACM, service providers can increase DVB-S2 efficiency gains by combining multiple small networks into a single, larger carrier. Additional configurations, service pricing models, and reporting capabilities allowservice providers to translate ACM benefits into new revenue-generating service offerings.

Leading spread spectrum technology enables use of ultra small and phased-array antennas on aircrafts, ships, and land based vehicles. The Evolution X5 is fully enabled for iDirect’s Global Network Management System (GNMS) and Automatic Beam Switching (ABS) technology allowing for a seamless network with truly global coverage.

The Evolution X5’s ovenized oscillator allows for operating in environments with steep temperature changes, making it ideal for outdoor or mobile applications like cellular backhaul and maritime.

The Evolution X5 Series is easily configured, monitored, and controlled through the iVantageTM network management system, a complete suite of software-based tools for configuring, monitoring and controlling networks from one location.
