[Via Satellite 02-01-2016] Advantech Wireless has unveiled its newest VSAT router, the VR7400C. The router enables Internet / Intranet access, videoconferencing, video streaming, backup services, video-on-demand, distance learning, multicasting, and Digital Satellite News Gathering (DSNG) trucks for broadcasters. It is also able to support efficient 3G / 4G and LTE cellular backhauling and optimize 3G and 4G traffic in order to use the minimum required bandwidth over the satellite link.
Advantech Wireless’ VR7400C VSAT router uses the company’s A-SAT-2 technology to dynamically switch the transmission waveform and access scheme based on the type of traffic being carried in the network. The waveform is selected between Multi-Frequency Time Division Multiple Access (MF-TDMA), Single Channel Per Carrier (SCPC) and the patented Burst Mode Frequency Division Multiple Access (BM-FDMA) waveforms.
“Broadcasters, cellular network providers, government and corporate markets are looking for more flexibility and capability from their satellite routers,” said John Landovskis, vice president of product line management and business development for satellite networking products at Advantech Wireless. “The VR7400C is a big step forward to meet the expanding need for high bandwidth and carrier grade operational flexibility in cellular backhauling, broadcast operations, and corporate and government video. This technology will be a powerful new asset as satellite operators migrate from traditional architectures to the [High Throughput Satellite] HTS networks that are coming on line in 2016 and beyond.”
