SkyEdge II is designed and optimized for broadband communications via satellite supporting data, VoIP and video applications. An excellent solution for broadband IP networks with high-speed inbound requirements, SkyEdge II offers a high performance and cost-effective way to deliver the communications services that enterprises, carriers, service providers and governments require. SkyEdge II adds new capabilities to Gilat's industry-leading SkyEdge family of VSAT products.
SkyEdge II highlights:
Highly efficient - supports higher modulation such as 16APSK/32APSK for outbound channels and QPSK/8PSK for inbound channels, reducing space segment costs
Full modulation / coding adaptivity for both outbound and inbound channels at multiple levels
Scalability from small networks numbering tens of VSATs and small initial space segment requirement starting from 500 KHz to very large networks and a fully saturated transponder
High performance - higher Inbound rates of 4Mb/sec and up to 135Mb/sec per outbound channel
Designed for reliability and high MTBF, based on Gilat's extensive experience in deployments in rural and harsh environments
Standards-based - DVB S2- ACM outbound and DVB-RCS inbound. SkyEdge II's DVB-RCS implementation is the same as the SkyEdge DVB-RCS certified VSAT, with additions such as DVB-S2 ACM.
SkyEdge II is RCS-compliant and will be submitted to the SatLabs Qualification Laboratory for testing.
