UHP-1000 Hubless TDMA Satellite Router

The Romantis UHP-1000 Hubless VSAT Satellite Router is fully scalable and can be operated as a mini-hub or a remote station in a TDM/TDMA network, or any node (master or slave) in a fully meshed Hubless TDMA network. This extreme versatility makes this router a universal software-defined component of a highly-efficient satellite network utilizing any operation mode or topology.

The Romantis UHP-1000 router is a compact and reliable device and can be installed on a work desk or in an equipment rack or inside a customized enclosure. Low power consumption and uniquely fast start on power-up facilitate use of alternative power sources, such as solar batteries. Integrated high-performance IP router supports different protocols and has expanded means for provision of Quality of Service (QoS).

Installation Manual

The UHP Networks UHP1000 series router is ideal for simultaneous reception of either TDM carrier from the hub and TDMA mesh carrier from two distinct satellite beams or from two antennas. This Universal modulator can instantaneously switch from TDMA burst mode to SCPC mode, thus assuring high data throughout and efficiency.
