ND SatCom SKYWAN 5G MF-TDMA Modem

Summary

 

SKYWAN is a highly flexible and versatile MF-TDMA VSAT system for establishing wide area networks. Acting either as IP routers or Frame Relay switches - or both at the same time - the SKYWAN network integrates seamlessly. It enables mobile and transportable applications with the smallest antennas and highest performance. Through its fully dynamic bandwidth allocation scheme SKYWAN provides instant bandwidth-on-demand for superior voice and high definition video quality. SKYWAN transmits traffic bursts with dynamic data rates from 64 Kbit/s up to 100 Mbit/s per site and enables high speed, hub-less communication between all sites. Any site can be reached via a single satellite hop connection supporting fully meshed network topologies.

The SKYWAN 5G represents the fifth generation of the SKYWAN product family. SKYWAN 5G transforms the way communication networks are created and behave by merging VSAT & comprehensive IT capabilities into ONE hardware device. SKYWAN 5G enables the most flexible, scalable and reliable VSAT networks ever. SKYWAN 5G is an MF-TDMA modem with integrated DVB-S2 receiver, allowing data to be transmitted in a single hop directly from their origin to their destination. Whatever type of network you request, from star to mesh or point-to-point, SKYWAN 5G reliably fits all topologies. One compact hardware and one identical software for all network roles simplify logistics, making hardware and software changes superfluous. 

SKYWAN 5G's unprecedented scalability enables growth of your network in a very cost-efficient manner.

The SKYWAN 5G is a MF-TDMA modem with integrated DVB-S2 receiver. Whether you need a star, multi star, hybrid or full mesh network, the unique hardware design of SKYWAN 5G reliably fits all existing topologies within the VSAT world. Each unit can act either as a HUB or so-called Master Station, thus highlighting its agility in its network role. Geographical redundancy of the master station is already built-in. The device is so flexible that you can change your topology at a later point, use the unit for other networks or even split or pool networks together. If additional TDMA inbound carriers are needed in one place you can easily cascade units to one stack, where all are controlled by the prime unit and using a single modulator avoids extra output power backoff. Since the optional available DVB outbound channel is not used for signalisation, multiple independent DVB carriers can be used in one network. In addition to the ACM support in DVB, an automatic registration at the DVB gateway is supported to simplify operation.
