iDirect Routers

iDirect’s Evolution routers support DVB-S2 with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), a bandwidth-efficient technology for networks with larger outbound capacity requirements. iDirect’s DVB-S2 was designed and developed around IP and uses extremely efficient encapsulation techniques that deliver speeds up to 140 Mbps.

Evolution X3 Satellite Router

With DVB-S2 and ACM on the outbound and deterministic TDMA on the return, the Evolution X3 maximizes the efficiency of satellite capacity to enable new opportunities for star topology networking. The Evolution X3 is supporting a wide range of carrier IP data rates, FEC codes and modulation types.

  • Optional 256-bit AES encryption


Evolution X5 Satellite Router

The Evolution X5 features dual-mode operation of DVB-S2/ACM or iNFINITI TDM on the outbound, supporting speeds up to 140 Mbps. Designed specifically to support business-critical applications, the Evolution X5 is a next-generation satellite router ideally suited for broadband applications such as enterprise connectivity, cellular backhaul, maritime, and other mobile applications.

  • Star and future support for SCPC- return upstream channels
  • Deterministic MF-TDMA return channel with 2D 16-State FEC on the inbound
  • Optional 256-bit AES encryption and Spread Spectrum waveform technology supports very small antennas


Evolution 8000 Series Satellite Router

The Evolution 8000 Series provides a new level of IP broadband capability, supporting both the DVB-S2/ACM and the iNFINITI outbound technologies. Service providers can implement the most efficient technology dependent on their network architecture, resulting in a more cost-efficient use of extremely small antennas on aircraft, maritime and land-based vehicles for government and military applications.

  • Star, mesh, and SCPC topologies
  • Integrated Spread Spectrum waveform technology supports very small antennas
  • Unique FIPS 140-2 certified, TRANSEC security with 256-bit AES encryption
  • Supports WGS IF ranges: 950-2000 MHz

iNFINITI Satellite Routers

iDirect’s iNFINITI routers support a unique IP-based TDM/D-TDMA satellite transmission technology that enables customers to intelligently share network capacity across multiple locations, allocating bandwidth in real time and on demand.

iNFINITI 7000 Satellite Router

The iNFINITI 7000 Series meets the requirements of the military and government with a secure, high performance broadband connectivity with speeds up to 20 Mbps on the outbound and up to 6.5 Mbps on the inbound.

  • Star, mesh and SCPC topologies
  • Unique FIPS 140-2 certified, TRANSEC security with 256-bit AES encryption
  • Advanced QoS prioritization

iNFINITI 5000 Satellite Router

The iNFINITI 5000 Series is designed to support critical business applications for medium to large enterprises that require maximum flexibility, higher traffic and advanced interoperability with their existing infrastructure. The routers can support IP data rates up to 20 Mbps outbound and up to 6.5 Mbps inbound.

  • Star, mesh and SCPC topologies
  • Optional 256-bit AES encryption
  • Advanced QoS prioritization


iNFINITI 3000 Satellite Router

The iNFINITI 3000 Series is designed as an easy-to-deploy solution that can support IP data rates up to 18 Mbps outbound and up to 5 Mbps inbound. The routers also come as a narrow-band model capable of delivering the same inbound IP data rates, but limited on the upstream to 200 kbps.

  • Star topology
  • Advanced QoS prioritization


Benefits

Superior Performance

  • Highest TCP/IP throughputs in the industry (9.1 Mbps downstream – 4.2 Mbps Upstream)
  • TCP/IP is very sensitive to BER. TPC Encoding ensures 10-9 BER, providing fiber-like reliability
  • Technological superiority allows use of much smaller antenna sizes

TCP Performance Improvements

  • Mitigates the effects of latency over satellite
  • TCP Acceleration - reduces overall bandwidth requirement, while enhancing performance
  • 3-Way Handshake Acceleration – provides better HTTP performance
  • Local DNS Caching – more user satisfaction

Quality of Service

  • Traffic Prioritization based on multiple parameters (Source/Destination IP Address, Source/Destination Port Number, Protocol Type)
  • Class-Based Queuing – assign percentage of bandwidth to each class
  • Rate Limiting – allocate only bandwidth that is needed
  • Committed Information Rate – dedicate bandwidth as required (Static and Dynamic)
  • Easily support VOIP and VTC
Specifications

Security

  • 3DES Link Encryption (only remotes that need it, even in a shared network)

Scalability

  • Increase bandwidth as needed on the Fly
  • Upstream from 64 kbps to 4.2 Mbps (antenna and transmitter size may vary)
  • Downstream from 64 Kbps to 14.1 Mbps (antenna and transmitter Size may vary)
  • Can easily add new remotes without increasing satellite capacity
  • Equipment will work with C, Ku, or Ka Band Satellites

Flexibility

  • Point-to-Point IP (SCPC) Configuration
  • TDMA Configuration
  • Star Topology
  • Mesh Topology / Star-Mesh Topology
  • Mobile Application
  • Fly-Away Suitcase

Hub Technology

Network Design Flexibility

  • MF-TDMA allows for adding capacity to network without interrupting service
  • Implement different networks within the same chassis
  • Extensive traffic engineering capability allows better utilization and control
  • Linearly scalable frame lengths, design networks to applications
  • Can create networks that range from high-oversubscription, high latency to low-oversubscripton and low-latency.
  • Can support any TCP/IP application
