Dialog Hub Modules

The Dialog hub series can be configured to match the size and satellite network configuration for any customer application; a vast choice is available in terms of satellite bands, transmission speed, power, modulation and amount of forward and return links. The hub scales easily and cost effectively from small (few terminals) to large networks (hundreds of thousands of terminals) and from single coverage area to multiple coverage areas on any frequency band. The Dialog hubs provide flexibility to easily add high capacity multicarrier demodulators which support SCPC, MF-TDMA and our patented Mx-DMA return link technologies.

It can serve one or multiple satellites, including high-throughput spot beam configurations. The hubs can be deployed remotely in different teleports while being managed centrally via a single Dialog Network Management System (NMS).

Three types of hubs are available. The 1IF Hub for small scale, dedicated networks, the 4IF Hub for small gateway deployments and the XIF Hub for large gateway deployments.

Dialog
  • The HUB6501- 1IF Hub -is designed to specifically address small and dedicated networks. It can support a single satellite network, up to 250 terminals and up to 150 Mbps of traffic processing, including QoS and congestion management, acceleration, compression and encryption. The hub easily integrates with the ‘IP backbone’ router and the RF gateway up/downlink.

    • Multiservice hub platform
    • Small networks
    • Supports DVB-S2/DVB-S2X ACM with Modulation from QPSK to 256APSK
    • Support for SCPC, MF-TDMA and Mx-DMA return links
    • Modem Hardware: M6100 Modulator, MCD7000 Multicarrier Demodulator, MCD7500 Multicarrier Demodulator
    • One satellite network, up to 250 terminals
    • Up to 150 Mbps of satellite capacity
    • Includes all traffic processing functionality
    • Optional redundancy can provide better than 99.99% availability
    • Including all traffic processing, like Quality of Service (QoS) and congestion management, acceleration, compression and encryption
    HUB6501- 1IF Hub
  • The HUB6504 – 4 IF Hub – is designed to support up to four satellite networks in a single rack and is the ideal solution for service providers looking for small gateway deployments. The modularity of the hub gives service providers agility to respond to their customer and market needs in a fast and cost-effective way. Additional satellite networks can be added easily and rapidly, simply by adding additional modulators, multicarrier demodulators and blade servers into the preconfigured rack slots and activating in the Dialog NMS.

    • Supports up to four satellite networks
    • Supports DVB-S2/DVB-S2X ACM with Modulation from QPSK to 256APSK
    • Up to 800 Mbps of satellite capacity, up to 60,0000 terminals
    • Up to 133 Msps DVB-S2X forward carriers
    • Support for SCPC, MF-TDMA and Mx-DMA return links
    • Modulator/Demodulator units: Up to 18 slots
    • Modem Hardware: M6100 Modulator, MCD7000 Multicarrier Demodulator, MCD7500 Multicarrier Demodulator
    • Modulators: 1 + optional redundant per IF
    • Carrier grade reliability with built-in redundancy
    • Low initial cost, pay-as-you-grow
    HUB6504 - 4 IF Hub
  • The Dialog XIF Hub is the solution for gateway deployments, serving a multitude of beams, transponders or satellites and is designed for operators seeking high throughput through its 10 Gbps Ethernet switching infrastructure. Capacity can be extended easily and rapidly, simply by adding additional multicarrier modulators, demodulators and blade servers and activation in the Dialog NMS. The use of Private Cloud technology enables flexible VNF deployment based on scalable compute and storage resources.
