SKYWAN Satellite Router
SKYWAN Satellite Router

SKYWAN is a highly flexible and versatile MF-TDMA VSAT system for establishing wide area networks. Acting either as IP routers or Frame Relay switches - or both at the same time - the SKYWAN network integrates seamlessly. It enables mobile and transportable applications with the smallest antennas and highest performance. Through its fully dynamic bandwidth allocation scheme SKYWAN provides instant bandwidth-on-demand for superior voice and high definition video quality. SKYWAN transmits traffic bursts with dynamic data rates from 64 Kbit/s up to 100 Mbit/s per site and enables high speed, hub-less communication between all sites. Any site can be reached via a single satellite hop connection supporting fully meshed network topologies.
SKYWAN Product Lines

ND SatCom offers two VSAT system product lines that have MF-TDMA in common:

SKYWAN 7000 series
SKYWAN 5G

At a first glance, these two independent products seem to be identical and 1:1 replaceable. However, in addition to all the common capabilities for building meshed VSAT network topologies, these products differ significantly: the satellite interfaces are not compatible because SKYWAN 5G is designed for a new configuration concept, differing protocol implementations in TDMA and higher layers like discontinuation of the Frame Relay service and new network wide IP QoS mechanisms linked to VRF domains.
Both VSAT system product lines are active and ND SatCom maintains and provides long term support for both product lines.

 
 

SKYWAN 7000

SKYWAN 7000 series is the feature rich flagship with a long success story in reliable governmental networks, fully redundant air traffic control networks but also COTM scenarios.

SKYWAN 7000 series was introduced with the new Turbo-Phi coding in 2010 and since then many new features were added. The modular SKYWAN modems come in many variants and chassis types tuned for specific scenarios.

SKYWAN 7000 series modems are deployed in networks where reliability is key. Extensions to monitor ODUs, dedicated interfaces to Redundancy Control Units and protocol extensions to ensure fully redundant node designs for all used services characterize this product line.

With multiple interfaces for Frame Relay (UNI and NNI) the SKYWAN 7000/2x70 modems provide seamless service integration with additional IP traffic. The frame relay switch integrated in SKYWAN 7000/2x70 modems gives lowest overhead for end-to-end real-time services using selected external Frame Relay Access Devices for a plurality of legacy voice, video, radar and data user devices. Protocol extensions are implemented to allow special signaling with Access Devices for voice call and voice codec processing leading to satellite bandwidth savings.

For networks with highest security demands, the SKYWAN 7000 series provides strong encryption (AES-256) in hardware on TDMA level with no performance penalty, and even comes in variants for WGS and FIPS 140-2 level 3 certified nodes

SKYWAN 7000 series supports COTM waveforms with verified COTM antenna systems where mobility is a must for some or even all network nodes.

SKYWAN 5G

SKYWAN 5G is the new All-IP platform that targets commercial markets like cellular backhauling and service providers requiring virtual routing capabilities to serve multiple customers per terminal or are demanding for high IP throughput in star or mesh networks.

SKYWAN 5G is evolving and following its own roadmap with innovative features.

With SKYWAN 5G each node may become TDMA network controller, or allows DVB-S2 transmissions to/from every node or even scale performance like a hub when using the cascading option.

Initially, some MF-TDMA extensions and encryption on the satellite link layer are not integrated. Instead with DVB-S2 a mix of transmission technologies opens the sky to get more throughput and new kinds of applications that avoids a central hub and traffic bottlenecks.

SKYWAN 5G is the product of choice by our partners when integrating it into lightweight fly-away mesh capable terminals.
