SKYWAN Satellite Router

SKYWAN is the only trusted solution made in Europe for demanding market sectors such as aviation and the military, where the concept of reliability has far-reaching impact.

The SKYWAN 5G all-in-one solution represents such excellence by flexibly fitting all topologies, providing any-to-all full mesh connection, transmitting with single-hop efficiency, and scaling as business grows while keeping costs in check. This MF-TDMA modem with integrated DVB-S2 receiver supports both fixed and mobility satcom applications and remains the premium standard for satellite communication.

SKYWAN is the most flexible and versatile VSAT system for establishing wide area networks. It enables mobile and transportable applications with fixed and on-the-move terminals with highest performance and link availability. Through its fully dynamic bandwidth allocation scheme, SKYWAN provides instant bandwidth-on-demand for superior voice and radar in ATC networks keeping air traffic flowing safely — a great responsibility with human lives at stake.

SKYWAN 5G transmits traffic with dynamic data rates from few bits/s up to 100 Mbit/s per site enabling high speed, hub-less communication between all sites. Any site is reached via a single AES-256 encrypted satellite hop in fully meshed network topologies. Emergency services such as the police, fire brigade or homeland security set up a working SKYWAN communications environment swiftly to transmit video footage easily in highest quality. With SKYWAN 5G terminals COTM transmissions continue running thanks to its ultra-fast link re-acquisition far ahead of other solutions.

SKYWAN 5G uses ACM for SCPC links, star or fully meshed networks. SKYWAN 5G is the world’s only VSAT technology allowing multi-channel TDMA networks with True-Mesh ACM for hubless secure communication. SKYWAN with ACM is synonym for single-hop mesh for highest link reliability regardless of weather. With DVB-S2 a mix of transmission technologies (MF-TDMA plus DVB-S2) opens the sky to get more throughput and new kinds of applications without any central hub or traffic bottlenecks.

Flexibility is the decision criterion for SKYWAN 5G. Each remote may become TDMA network controller, or allows DVB-S2 transmissions to/from every node or even scale performance like a hub with the cascading option. Multiple backup devices increase the node availability even for cascaded nodes. When needed, reconfigure a SKYWAN router to SCPC (Point-2-Point) mode and exclusively and efficiently use the full link capacity. Manage your network options: 3 choices with triple access schemes within one unit. The flexibility is yours at any time.

SKYWAN 5G is the All-IP platform covering from cellular networks to service provider networks, governmental and military networks. The virtual routing functions (VRF) and trunking capabilities serve multiple customers per terminal and delivers highest throughput and transmission security. Payload compression for TCP/UDP/IP and GTP as used in mobile network access nodes in combination with the efficient dynamic bandwidth assignment further boosts data throughput in full meshed single-hop hub-less topologies.

Manage your mission critical networks invoking your preferred browser with NMS to modify easily parameters in live networks. Transactions orchestrate network wide parameter rollouts or allow to undo parameter modifications in the network. Operators use HTTPS based GUIs while experts use the secure command line interface for additional tool integration. Backup NMS appliances may be hosted anywhere. With NMS you diminish impact from cyber threats by activating security and stability patches whenever you want while saving scarce bandwidth with the smart and secure “over-the-air” update mechanism.

As soon as your SKYWAN 5G network is operational, NMS is not required anymore - all traffic prioritisation for real-time or best effort traffic as supported by QoS mechanisms, load balancing, or beam switching is implemented in each node.

SKYWAN 5G technology is available as scalable 1U indoor or ruggedized outdoor unit. It is integrated in the ManPack SPT 600M terminal or is used as the modem of choice integrated into lightweight manpack or flyaway mesh capable COTP terminals or packaged with on-the-move antennas for land- or sea-mobile COTM solutions.

Note: SKYWAN 7000 Series had reached its End of Sales (EoS) by 31. December 2019 with a subsequent software support phase (EoS +2 years). Customers can reach ND SATCOM Customer Service & Support for support services.
SKYWAN 5G
SKYWAN 5G
  • Get all-in-one - the reliable ONE solution
  • Gain flexible topology - SCPC or star or full mesh networks
  • Gain space & portability - smallest unit available
  • Gain powerful performance - ACM with single-hop mesh
  • Generate savings - lower cost of ownership

Deployed worldwide in mission-critical government and ATC networks where reliability is critical, SKYWAN 5G has built a stellar reputation for its proven high performance. This track record, plus continual innovation, have convinced multiple Ministries of Defence to select SKYWAN 5G for military networks with deployable terminals where robustness, flexibility, encrypted data transmission and secured management planes are top priorities

Recently launched, SKYWAN 5G Release 2.0 (R2.0) is the most flexible VSAT satellite router for true-mesh networks with efficient air interface thanks to its unique ACM for remote-to-remote transmission in a single-hop. That hop can contain 64x boost throughput with ND SATCOM’s exclusive True-Mesh ACM. ACM is not only possible with MF-TDMA for star and mesh networks, but also with SCPC links on only one hardware platform, reconfigurable in operation by network operators based on daily demand. These operators can flexibly decide network topology from three modes within one modem. Each SKYWAN network can be extended with DVB-S2 outbounds; each terminal has an additional integrated DVB-S2 receiver. For the highest network reliability, SKYWAN 5G R2.0 offers station redundancy and geo-redundancy functions, all without central hubs or dependency on NMS solutions.

Ease of use, secure transmission reliability and powerful scalability are the hallmarks of SKYWAN 5G R2.0. With only one hardware unit and one software, every customer benefits over the entire life cycle from simple network planning, efficient training and one-component operation, while simultaneously benefitting from scalable power through flexible deployment in SCPC connections or star or fully meshed networks with hundreds of directly connected locations, sites and/or stations.

For its customers ND SATCOM ensures business continuity, cybersecurity and reduced total cost of ownership through a 4-year package supporting the hardware platform, software maintenance and efficient implementation of security and stability patches during operation. Altogether, the customer gains from a strong ROI.

    • SKYWAN FAD 9140 unit is a 1U solution for central and branch office levels


    The SKYWAN family of VSAT networking products is complemented by the FAD 9140, a compact high performance universal access device of latest technology. The FAD 9140 is an application-aware router and multiplexer, combining the functionality of a data router, a multiplexer and a VHF/voice gateway in a single device, enabling organizations to create converged networks and transport any type of traffic over satellite.

    The FAD 9140 is a high speed, low cost, flexible and compact unit that supports 16 analog or 120 digital telephony channels in a multitude of application scenarios. The universal access device provides concentration and switching of packetized voice as well as data from the LAN ports and/or the serial interfaces. Being specifically adapted to the SKYWAN VSAT system, the combination of both defines the state of the art for voice quality in packetized transmissions over satellite. Bandwidth usage is minimized through efficient compression and dynamically call set-up. Extension interface cards add optional hardware interfaces to the unit.
    The FAD 9140 provides a safe migration path from legacy TDM or Frame Relay networks to IP-centric networks. It includes support for the latest VoIP (SIP) and Eurocae WG67 ED-136/137 standards and robust IP/Ethernet QoS, with eight classes of service and 16 levels of prioritization to ensure that mission-critical applications always receive sufficient bandwidth. In addition, specialty features are available for handling the particulars of radar, voice push-to-talk (PTT) and VHF voice applications common to Air Traffic Control and governmental networks.
