iDirect Evolution X5 Satellite Router Overview
High-speed, High-performance IP Broadband Connectivity
Designed specifically to support business-critical applications, the iDirect Evolution X5 is ideally suited for high-performance broadband applications such as enterprise connectivity, cellular backhaul, maritime, secure banking, and other mobile applications.
The iDirect Evolution X5 features iDirect’s highly efficient implementation of the DVB-S2 standard with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) on the outbound carrier. Along with Adaptive TDMA technology or SCPC Return, 2D 16-State FEC, the iDirect Evolution X5 maximizes the efficiency of satellite capacity to enable new opportunities.
The iDirect Evolution X5 offers dual-mode operation between iNFINITI TDM or DVB-S2/ ACM on the outbound and ATDMA or SCPC Return on the inbound, 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 a DVB-S2 network in the future, the Evolution X5 adapts to a customer’s changing requirements. A customer can also temporarily switch from TDMA to SCPC Return without having to swap out the equipment.
With over-the-air software licensing features that can add spread spectrum capabilities, operators are allowed even more flexibility to customize the Evolution X5 to meet their technical and budget requirements.
Increased Efficiency with Superior Quality of Service
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 allow service providers to translate ACM benefits into new revenue-generating service offerings.
Leading spread spectrum technology enables use of ultra small and phasedarray 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 iDirect Evolution X5’s high-stability oscillator allows for operating in environments with steep temperature changes, making it ideal for mobile applications like cellular backhaul and maritime.
