iDX 3.2 & X7: XPECT MORE!
• Network Control and Efficiency
• Adaptive TDMA returns
• Outbound DVB-S2 roll off enhancement
• Performance with X7
• Significant increase in performance
• High end features for demanding use cases
Adaptive TDMA
Overview
• Before Inroute Groups (IRG) consisted of homogeneous
carriers
• In iDX 3.2 IRG can consist of heterogeneous carriers
• Different symbol rates
• Different MODCODs
• Different SS factors
• Benefits
• Enables terminals to achieve their max speed
• No need to assume the worst case scenario
• Greater dynamic range in network design
Adaptive TDMA
Higher Control and Efficiency
• Optimize network performance in any condition
• Up to three dynamic “profiles” or compositions
• Clear sky
• Fade
• Heavy fade (a safety net)
• Benefits
• Margin is converted to bandwidth efficiency
• Availability is maintained via dynamic profiles
• Unprecedented control to fulfill SLAs
Outbound Enhancement
Reduced Roll Off Factor
• New, selectable roll-off factor
• Options include 5%, 10%, 15% and
20% (existing)
• Dependent on carrier size
5% ROF
20%
34Msps
30Msps
• Example: 36MHz Transponder
• Increase usable symbol rate by 4Msps
