Advantech Wireless introduces next-generation satcom product
Satellite manufacturer Advantech Wireless is proud to announce the debut of the New Millennium Series VSAT Hub for HTS — the company’s most powerful next-gen satellite communications product.
Developing upon the Discovery Series of DVB-RCS Hubs, a single rack of the Millennium Series can be designed so that it supports upwards of 20,000 remote terminals and 775 Mbps of traffic to the remotes, spread across up to five various transponder/satellites and 480 TDMA carriers. One rack can receive up to 240 Mbps of IP traffic-generated by the remote terminal population.
In a company statement, Advantech Wireless PLM Director John Landovskis explained: “A powerful feature of the Millennium Hub is its redundancy capability. On the Forward Link, the standard design incorporates a 1:5 scheme, whereby one Forward Link chain operates in a Hot Standby mode, ready to automatically takeover in the event of a malfunction of any of the 5 active Forward Link systems. Similarly, for the Return Link, the standard design provides for a 1:n redundancy scheme”.
This new series of VSAT Hub is designed to function with all fixed satellite frequency bands (C, X, Ku, Ka-band) and support all of Advantech Wireless’ family of Satellite Interactive Terminals (SITs).
