iDirect Mini Hub Series 10000

The Series 10000 iDirect Mini Satellite Hub provides a very small, highly efficient solution for smaller teleport operators and enterprises operating their own network with up to 15 to 30 remotes. IsoTropic’s has the ability to build an iDirect Mini-Hub should you need it. However, there are other options for networks in the range of 50 remotes that you might want to consider. Contact IsoTropic Networks for a complete analysis of your requirements and a custom solution.

iDirect Mini Hub Highlights

  • Ideal for operating a single, small star network
  • Provides one inbound/outbound network capability
  • 1IF supports one network on one satellite
  • 8-port 10/100 Ethernet switch
  • Integrated routing and processing capability
  • Managed by iVantage® NMS

The iDirect Mini Hub is a highly efficient solution for smaller enterprises operating their own private networks. The iDirect Mini Hub provides one inbound/ outbound network capability, providing data rates up to 18 Mbps downstream and 5 Mbps upstream. The Mini Hub is available in either 15 remote or 30 remote option and is non-redundant.


Capacity optimization is inherent throughout the iDirect solution. By using a native IP solution, you’ll save 10–50% capacity versus an inefficient DVB MPEG encapsulation scheme. The extremely rapid bandwidth-on-demand system, capitalizing on MF-TDMA protocol, ensures the highest efficiency of capacity utilization.


Increase bandwidth as needed on-the-fly: upstream carriers from 64 kbps to 5 Mbps; downstream carriers up to 18 Mbps. Upstream per remote up to 5 Mbps; Downstream per remote up to 18 Mbps. You can also configure carriers in 1 Kbps increments, and add new remotes easily without increasing satellite capacity.


iDirect’s D-TDMA allocates bandwidth among multiple remote sites, based on instantaneous conditions. Several times a second, our D-TDMA feature allocates bandwidth dynamically based on criteria such as the queued depth at each remote site, the CIR (Committed Information Rate) configuration, Quality of Service (QoS) and prioritization requirements, as well as any Rate Limiting established at each remote site.
