provides enterprise-class IP transport and traffic management over satellite networks.
We are pleased to offer a new service using iDirect hardware: the Star Com service iDirect's NetModem II Plus broadband router is a simple "one box" solution that provides enterprise-class IP transport and traffic management over satellite networks. The NetModem II Plus is a compact set-top terminal that delivers a satellite modem, IP router, TCP optimization over satellite, 3DES Encryption, and QoS/prioritization all in one easy to deploy solution. At the same time, it delivers the highest data throughput speeds in the industry today - 18 Mbps downstream, and 8.4 Mbps upstream. And, because it is highly scalable for both inbound and outbound data rates, it allows users to easily accommodate current and future bandwidth requirements. Netmodem Features - For Enterprise Customers The ability to deliver broadband access to all your facilities is a critical component in your organization's productivity and efficiency. At iDirect Technologies, however, we understand that unless your remote access can also support all of your organizations business critical applications, it's only doing half the job. That's why iDirect's remote technology provides the networking power you need to support all your user applications, and meet any communications challenge via satellite. The NetModem was developed to include all the functionality customers need: Capacity Optimization - With 1.2 Carrier Spacing we deliver 14% savings in bandwidth, through more efficient use of your transponder capacity. In addition, by using a native IP solution you save 10-50% capacity compared with inefficient MPEG Encapsulation. Security - Remote locations no longer need to sacrifice functionality for security. The iDirect solution enables the deployment of government or corporate approved VPN solutions over satellite networks without loss of either TCP performance or support for real-time applications such as VoIP and streaming video. Broadband Access - iDirect Technologies supports the highest TCP/IP throughputs in the industry, with speeds up to 18 Mbps downstream and 8.4 Mbps upstream. And, since iDirect supported networks can be configured in 1Kbps increments, users can get exactly the bandwidth they need in the most cost effective manner. Application Support - Deploy any HTTP application, and simultaneously support data, voice and video to multiple locations while guaranteeing the delivery quality. Remote locations will have the same capabilities as offices on landline broadband networks. Centralized NMS System - Manage all your remote units from a central location. The iDirect Network Management System (NMS) provides all essential monitor and control operations from a centrally located Network Operations Center (NOC). Increased Bandwidth Efficiency - Support more applications and carry more traffic over your available bandwidth. Our Deterministic TDMA network architecture (D-TDMA) algorithm allocates bandwidth among multiple remote sites, based on criteria such as the queued depth at each remote site, the CIR (Committed Information Rate) configuration, Quality of Service (QOS) and prioritization requirements. Support Real Time Applications - Deploy applications like voice and video with the most flexible and granular Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities in the industry. You can automatically identify, classify and prioritize data traffic across the network to provide flexible service and application options to customers. Downloads Star Com Powerpoint presentation
