Premium DVB-RCS VSAT mesh terminal

Advantech Satellite Networks, in collaboration with Hakusan Corp. and JSAT Corp., has successfully demonstrated the industry's first DVB-RCS VSAT terminal operating in a mesh topology where each VSAT terminal relays data via satellite to another terminal.


This configuration effectively minimizes the need for a centralized uplink site and reduces bandwidth and delay by half.


A high-resolution TV conferencing system was successfully demonstrated over a mesh network of three DVB-RCS VSAT terminals. Each VSAT terminal was able to communicate with other terminals via a single hop satellite link.


The demonstration coincides with the market release of the SatNet S5200 MeshTerminal product and Hub Mesh option, Advantech's DVB-RCS transparent mesh offering.
