Network Switching Eased With Paradigm’s Enhanced PIM950 Interface Module

Paradigm has developed the first interface to switch between Velocity and Evolution satellite networks both ways, at the click of a button, taking operational agility to a whole new level.

Certified on all major satellites, the PIM950 enables non-technical users to confidently switch between Velocity and Evolution networks, without any change of hardware or configuration in the field, simplifying the user experience.

In contrast to legacy options that restrict users’ access to features and require complex manual reconfiguration on-site to switch networks, the PIM950 is preconfigured with both network options, providing the flexibility to jump between the two quickly.

The development significantly increases flexibility for users who need quick access to operational alternatives and redundancy, without a dependency on technical expertise. Supported on all iDirect-based satellite networks and recently certified by Inmarsat Global Xpress, operatives can connect wherever they are in the world.

Paradigm’s General Manager, Jon Godfrey, comments, "The Paradigm Interface Module (PIM) has led the industry’s advance towards more intuitive, simple user interfaces, through its integration of modem, router, satellite alignment tool, management and power distribution. The fact that it’s modem- and terminal-agnostic ensures end-user flexibility. The ability to quickly and simply switch between networks in the field, is a natural extension to this capability.  The high demand from military sectors in particular, has focused our engineering on solutions that balance flexibility and performance. Not only does the PIM950 make it extremely easy to switch between networks in the field but, with TRANSEC/FIPS140-2 capability, operatives can do so with certainty of security. Essentially, our objective is to give users confidence. We do that by making the world’s most advanced satcom simple to use."
