The SatLink 1000 is the leading DVB-RCS certified VSAT Indoor Unit, with support for DVB-S2 and DVB-S forward links. Optimized for IP networking its cost-effective design, packaging, and easy operation make it ideal for Internet access services to consumers and small businesses. Yet it has the advanced QoS, traffic acceleration, VPNs and other value-added software features required for carrier-class interactive data, voice, and video conferencing, plus multicast IP applications. Users connect via Ethernet. The SatLink 1000 supports various antennas options, plus BUCs/LNBs in C, Ku, Ka and EHF bands.
Cost-Effective, High-Volume VSAT
SatLink 1000 delivers the price-performance for small business and residential broadband Internet services
Bandwidth Efficiency at Many Levels
Advanced DVB-S2 modulation and FEC, header compression, section packing & intelligent bandwidth-on-demand algorithms enable efficient broadband applications; the unit consumes only 64 bps when idle, 0 bps in "auto-sleep" mode.
Comprehensive IP Networking Features
SatLink delivers TCP and HTTP acceleration, VPN, NAT, and VLAN options, plus a built-in DHCP server and both unicast and multicast IP routing.
Advanced QoS for Data, Voice, Video
QoS Groups for bandwidth-on-demand enable delay sensitive traffic for interactive media concurrently with bulk data, without dedicating bandwidth per VSAT.
Fanless, Compact Consumer Packaging
The SatLink 1000's compact size, fanless operation, external power supply, and vertical mounting option makes it ideal for office desktop and residential uses.
Simple, Consumer-Friendly Operation
Engineered for plug & play operation and simple enough for self-installation, the SatLink 1000 allows all necessary software updates and remote management via satellite from the hub.
ACM and Rain Fade Mitigation
Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) on forward links and adaptive FEC and symbol rate on return links increase bandwidth efficiency and improves link margins to mitigate rain fades.
BUCs up to 3 Watts with Power Control
Internal power for BUCs up to 3 Watts; automatic power control from the hub simplifies installation, and optimizes operation and bandwidth use.
Throughput: Up to 12 Mbps of IP packets at 1500 bytes (varies with IP software features enabled)
IP QoS and Bandwidth-on-Demand
Traffic Classification: May use combination of 802.1p, DSCP, Protocol Type, IP Source Address, IP Destination Address, TCP/UDP Source Port or Destination Port
