The new Comtech FX Series WANOp appliance delivers up to 5 Gbps throughput and 1,000,000 TCP flows.
Targeted at satellite service providers for Internet trunking applications, Comtech EF Data Corp. has expanded its WAN Optimization (WANOp) product line. The expansion includes new WANOp appliances and enhanced functionality focused on users’ Quality of Experience (QoE).
The new Release 7 of the FX Series WANOp appliance delivers up to 5 Gbps throughput and 1,000,000 TCP flows, leveraging the bandwidth capabilities of High Throughput Satellites. When paired with Comtech EF Data’s CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking and Broadcast Modem, the FX Series delivers the ultimate Internet trunking solution for satellite service providers.
- Faster web browsing experience (up to 50%) matching standard terrestrial backhaul Internet access
- Faster file transfer (object download/upload) up to 250 Mbps per session
- Significantly better resiliency to packet loss by several orders of magnitude
Comtech’s WANOp solution is designed to meet service providers’ most stringent requirements in terms of:
- Service availability and reliability: Hot swap redundant power supplies, system and LAN/WAN connectivity (dual-path) redundancy, fail-safe pass-through, extended temperature range
- Scalability: One platform, upgradable through software license
- Operation efficiency: Simplified “plug & play” configuration
Another development is the Layer 2/Layer 3 network transparency of the appliance solution, facilitating network deployment and ease of operation. Acceleration is performed on the end user traffic regardless of the underlying network protocols and encapsulation methods. The FX Series WANOp can manage any combination of stacked VLANs, stacked MPLS, Layer 2 or Layer 3 VPN, GTP encapsulated LTE/4G or 3G Mobility traffic, including support of Ethernet Jumbo frames up to 9,000 bytes and dual stack Ipv4/Ipv6.
When paired with Comtech EF Data modems, the FX appliances with Release 7 monitor, in real-time, the available bandwidth and maximize the throughput and usage of the link to the modem’s current capacity. This function is essential when using Adaptive Coding and Modulation, which is commonly the case for satellites operating in Ka- or Ku-bands.
