The SatLink 2900 is ideal for carrier and ISP networks offering high-value broadband multi-media services, given its 50 Mbps of download IP throughput, QoS for all media types, and TCP & HTTP Acceleration up to 10 Mbps per connection. Special features such as: AES encryption, options for mobile configurations, an SCPC mode, and built-in mesh networking support add to its versatility. Like its smaller cousin the SatLink 2000, it also delivers the best spectral efficiency by using the international DVB-RCS2 standard supporting QPSK, 8PSK, and 16QAM on TDMA carriers. The SatLink 2900 also has all the value-added IP networking features customers expect in SatLink networks. The SatLink 2900 supports various antenna options, with BUCs/LNBs in C, Ku, Ka, X, and EHF bands, including STM’s own Ku Band transceivers. See datasheet below.
The SatLink 2900 VSAT is a member of a family of SatLink products and systems from STM enabling scalable, high-availability DVB-RCS & DVB-RCS2 networks including: VSATs, Hubs, and Hub components, with value-added options for advanced data, voice, and video networking via satellite. STM is the technology and market leader in DVB-RCS & DVB-RCS2 satellite networks delivering superior performance for telecom service providers, ISPs, governments, and enterprises around the world. STM also offers integration, installation, 24x7 global support, and managed network services.
Features & Benefits :
High Capacity with Mesh & SCPC Options
The SatLink 2900 delivers 50 Mbps of download IP throughput for broadband services using either Bandwidth-on-Demand or SCPC mode and the highest spectral efficiency. Its mesh networking option has low-blocking probability with its ability to receive 8 concurrent bursts.
Plug and Play Integrated Design
The integrated hardware design and DiSEqC interface greatly reduces installation errors while also reducing installation time and complexity. The IDU monitors and controls actual ODU power output allowing self-install.
Scalable Management & Control
All management & control processes are engineered for large networks, with automatic software updates via multicast, efficient statistics collection, and fast, easy network-wide reconfigurations, without site visits.
Comprehensive IP Networking Features
SatLink delivers TCP and HTTP acceleration, secure VPNs, NAT, and VLAN options, as well as a built-in DHCP server and both unicast and multicast IP routing.
AES-256 Encryption Built-in
Secures all user IP traffic transparently, with support for traffic key per VSAT Group and automatic key updates.
Bandwidth Efficiency at Many Levels
With its high-order modulation options, 16-state Turbo Code FECs, ACM, header compression, burst size optimization, & intelligent capacity request algorithms, the 2900 delivers highly efficient broadband applications.
ACM on Forward & Return Links
Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) is performed on DVB-S2 forward links and RCS2 return links (per burst), enabling maximum two-way link availability. ACM is integrated with SatLink’s QoS & Traffic Engineering so key customer service levels can be met during fades.
VSAT Groups, Traffic Engineering, and QoS
SatLink allows operators (and VNOs) to set up different virtual capacity pools (with max and min rates) for each QoS class used by each of a number of VSAT Groups. This give operators more flexibility & control on the service tiers they can offer. SatLink’s advanced QoS features enable all data and media types to use bandwidth-on-demand while key quality metrics, such as jitter, delay, and throughput, are held within bounds set for each VSAT Group and each individual VSAT.
Power Options and BUC Power
Can use either AC or 24 VDC power feed. Internal power to drive BUCs up to ~8 Watts. Automatic power control from the hub simplifies installation and optimizes operation and bandwidth use.
