iDirect 4-Slot Hub Series 12000
This Universal Satellite Hub system is a cost-effective, compact, highly scalable solution for service providers operating multiple networks looking to benefit from the same level of flexibility, efficiency and reliability as larger iDirect hub solutions. There is no better solution for building providing VSAT Services to corporate clients. The iDirect 4-Slot hub is ideal for LTE backhaul, SCADA, and other applications that benefit from a hub located at corporate headquarters or local state government offices.
iDirect 4-SlotHub Series 12000 Highlights
- Rack-mountable chassis with 4 line card slots and a fifth slot for configuration
- 1IF or 4IF version supporting multiple bands and transponders on up to four satellites
- Supports star, mesh and SCPC topologies
- 8-port Gigabit Ethernet LAN interfaces supports high carrier symbol rates
- Built-in redundancy with fail-over capability
- Daisy chain capability
- Enables Host Network Operator and Virtual Network Operator configuration options
- Operates with Protocol Processor and NMS servers for smart IP routing and load balancing
This Universal Satellite Hub system is a cost-effective, compact, highly scalable solution for service providers operating multiple networks looking to benefit from the same level of flexibility, efficiency and reliability as larger iDirect hub solutions.
Smart Design With Great Scalability
The hub consists of 4+1 slots and up to 4 IF interfaces enabling multiple in and outbound networks on 4 satellites. The fifth line card slot can be used for configuration. The compact design enables service providers to start with a smart and feature-rich solution when building new networks, while offering the same functionality as iDirect’s larger hubs including integrated IP routing, TCP/IP acceleration, advanced Group QoS, encryption, iVantage™, iDirect’s industry-leading NMS (network management system). Scalability is furthermore achieved through a hub daisy chaining capability.
The hub is highly flexible, supporting the entire array of topologies and access schemes including star, mesh, SCPC, deterministic MF-TDMA and TDM or DVB-S2/ACM all in the same chassis. Bandwidth can be increased on the fly up to 20 Mbps per iNFINITI line card, and up to 138 Mbps per Evolution line card on the outbound and up to 10 Mbps on the inbound. Furthermore, the hub supports up to 4 IF interfaces, supporting up to 4 satellite connections.
Greater Control and Manageability
Convenient plug-in modules, with an extensive LED array, offers even more control and manageability. The management control module includes power and fan status module reset switches, audible alarm on/off, and over temperature sensor switches. The LED array provides instant status checks on IF modules, line cards, power supplies, fans, RCM and chassis conditions.
