iDirect Evolution X5 DVB-S2 Remote Satellite Router

IDirect Evolution X5 Satellite Router Features

  • Star topology
  • Two modes of operation: iNFINITI or DVB-S2/ACM outbound
  • Deterministic MF-TDMA or SCPC Return channel
  • Extremely efficient 2D 16-State inbound coding
  • Advanced QoS and traffic prioritization
  • Automatic end-to-end Uplink Power Control
  • Optional Spread Spectrum waveform technology supports very small antennas

High-Speed, High-Performance IP Broadband Connectivity

Designed specifically to support business-critical applications, the iDirect Evolution X5 Satellite Router is ideally suited for high-performance broadband applications such as enterprise connectivity, cellular backhaul, maritime, secure banking, and other mobile applications.

The iDirect Evolution X5 Satellite Router features iDirect’s highly efficient implementation of the DVB-S2 standard with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) on the outbound carrier. Along with Adaptive TDMA technology or SCPC Return, 2D 16-State FEC, the Evolution X5 maximizes the efficiency of satellite capacity to enable new opportunities.
