The objective of the project is to enhance existing SatLink VSAT network capabilities by further developing functionality related to mobility, security, and bandwidth efficiency by:
It is important to ensure a seamless and cost efficient upgrade path to DVB-S2X for existing SatLink customers by:
SatLink beyond 2020 offers:
SatLink “proactive beam switching” is a new unique feature that is especially designed for networks with land-mobile and maritime mobile users and aims to enhance the end user experience as well as service provider bandwidth utilization.
New modems with state-of-the-art technology, including support for DVB-S2X and higher beam throughput.
Fulfilling customer security requirements to both local and remote connections.
SatLink Beyond 2020 supports the following features:
The SatLink satellite modem networking system provides broadband IP networking capability for operators that offers end-users broadband IP services by using VSATs and geostationary satellites. A modem network can be utilised by a single operator or it can be used to host virtual network operators (VNO) as desired. Each VNO has limited and restricted access to the management system and may manage a subset of the VSAT Modem Units(VMUs). The network is suited for end-users in fixed locations, on maritime vessels and on land-mobile units. Interconnection with terrestrial WAN infrastructure can be provided e.g. by having the hub hosted in a satellite teleport with good WAN interconnectivity.
The satellite networking topology that is supported is hub-spoke networking for IP traffic, using DVB-S2, DVB-S2X and DVB-RCS2 signals.
The project duration is 3 years starting Q2 2020, divided into 3 stages where in addition to continuously enhancing and developing new features for mobility, security and bandwidth efficiency, there is development of new DVB-S2X compatible HUB and VSAT modems, main HW developments per stage are:
First stage of development.
