X7 Satellite Router

Next Generation, High Throughput Connectivity

 The X7 is built on an entirely new multi-core hardware system and optimized to deliver best-in-class DVB-S2/ACM and Adaptive TDMA performance.


  • 1 RU high remote fitting in standard telecom racks
  • Licensable 2nd demodulator for multicast traffic
  • Variant power supply module configurations
  • Multi-image support and Web iSite for ease of deployment and upgrades
  • Communications-on-the-Move (COTM) support
  • Optional AES Encryption 

Built on an entirely new multi-core hardware system, the X7 is able to reach 100 Mbps of combined outbound and inbound throughput. This enables service providers to deliver the data rates needed for bandwidth-heavy business applications and multicast services like IP TV, distance learning, HD broadcast, digital signage and video. The X7 also features licensable SCPC Return and an 8-port embedded switch for managing multiple user groups. The rack-mountable remote comes with multiple choices of embedded power supply units and dual DVB-S2 demodulators with fully independent RF chains. This makes it uniquely suited for a range of enterprise voice and data services while simultaneously receiving multicast channels over the same or a second transponder or satellite – even combining spot-beam HTS capacity and Ku- and C-band capacity.
