SatLink 2900 Modem (End of Life)

SatLink 2900 Modem

The SatLink 2900 Modem is used on STM VSAT networks.

The SatLink 2900 Modem provides the advanced capabilities required for land, sea, and aerospace deployments, including global roaming with access to 10 different beams for continuous two-way satellite communications. Internet access, Voice over IP, GSM over IP, and video conferencing are common applications of its powerful mobile features. SatLink 2900 delivers high IP throughput for broadband services using either Bandwidth-on-Demand or SCPC mode. Reception of 8 concurrent bursts eliminates blocking in mesh networks. Excellent for multi-media & multi-cast services with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.

High Capacity with Mesh & SCPC Options

SatLink 2900 delivers high IP throughput for broadband services using either Bandwidth-on-Demand or SCPC mode. Reception of 8 concurrent bursts eliminates blocking in mesh networks. Excellent for multi-media & multi-cast services with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Adapted to Mobile Environment

The SatLink 2900 Mobile VSAT can store parameters for up to 20 Forward Links, enabling it to move seamlessly between beams. The software is specially adapted for the constant roll and pitch of the seas making it less susceptible to outages, and the unit is equipped with a GPS interface for fast, automatic logon and synchronisation. Optional transmit inhibit switch prevents inadvertent transmissions outside of authorized areas. Mesh networking option available for direct communications between mobile installations.

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, plus 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

8PSK and 16 QAM on return links with 16-state Turbo FECs, header compression, section packing, burst size optimisation & intelligent bandwidth-on-demand algorithms assure efficient broadband applications.

ACM on Forward & Return Links

Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) on both DVB-S2 forward links and DVB-RCS2 return links (per time slot) further increases bandwidth efficiency, total network throughput, and link availability.

Traffic Engineering and QoS

SatLink VSAT Groups allow Virtual Network Operators (VNOs) to set their own traffic engineering and QoS policies for control of bandwidth resources and SLAs. Networks with 100,000’s of VSATs and hundreds of VSAT Groups and VNOs are supported. SatLink’s advanced QoS features enable data, voice, and video traffic to use bandwidth-on-demand with high-quality, dynamically sharing network bandwidth for maximum efficiency.

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 optimises operation and bandwidth use.

Automatic Beam Switching

Software for automatic beam switching is included for interfacing with leading maritime & land mobile antennas via IP.
