SDN-based architecture enables satellite operators to dynamically support multiple fixed and mobility applications and business models from a single platform
October 27, 2015 — Wavestream Corporation, a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today the launch of X-Architecture for SkyEdge II-c, its revolutionary distributed Architecture to address the growing demands of High-Throughput Satellites (HTS) . The Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-based architecture enables satellite operators and service providers to support mobility, enterprise, cellular and consumer broadband applications and business models from a single platform.
The programmable, cloud-based architecture allows networks of any size, using traditional wide-beam and high-throughput satellites, to deliver managed services in hosted or virtual network business models. X-Architecture was built to support dynamic on-demand services, empowering service providers to broaden their offerings. Unique cloud bandwidth management capabilities enable both mobility and Virtual Network Operators (VNOs) services over spot-beam satellites.
Flexibility is enabled by the distributed architecture, which separates data center functions from baseband elements. The network is easily controlled by a global, unified and centralized network management system, Wavestream TotalNMS.
Total Cost of Ownership is significantly reduced with 1:N inter-beam redundancy, 30 separate VNOs per rack, automatic remote service provisioning, Cloud-VNO over multi-spot beams and SDN/NFV future-ready functionality.
With X-Architecture, satellite service providers can now easily expand their offerings to reach a broad range of up-and-coming markets for high-bandwidth satellite communications, including broadband access, 4G/LTE cellular rapid deployments, hardware and software enterprise VNOs, as well as mobility applications for in-flight connectivity (IFC), maritime and trains.
“We believe that X-Architecture is the only platform on the market capable of realizing the full potential of HTS,” stated Dov Baharav, Wavestream Chairman of the Board and Interim CEO. “In validation of the strength of our technology,
X-Architecture has already enjoyed early success in major deals with leading satellite operators in Europe, China and Latin America.
“Not only do we deliver the most innovative technology, we also are committed to our long-term partnerships with satellite operators and their continued growth with built-in support for next-generation HTS and satellite constellations,” Dov Baharav concluded.
X-Architecture for SkyEdge II-c will be unveiled at Wavestream booth (J2) at the China Satellite Conference in Beijing, October 28-30, 2015, and will also be showcased at AfricaCom in Cape Town, November 17-19, 2015.
