Hybrid Networks

Hybrid Networks

The explosion of new wireless technologies from LEO/MEO Satellites, 5G cellular systems and mesh wireless metro networks, along with related ad-hoc military deployments, has led to the need for seamless interconnection between these systems while also providing much higher capacities with resiliency. This paradigm has led to innovative solutions for hybrid networking and XipLink is leading the way with new software modules, such as Traffic Steering, allowing intelligent bonding and balancing of multiple link types into a single bandwidth pool while integrating award-winning XipOS optimization for box count reduction.

Customer Benefits:

  • More capacity at lower cost by augmenting existing GEO connections with NGEO or cellular data
  • Increase uptime by utilizing multiple, diverse paths with integrated session persistence to maintain end user connection
  • Reduce box count by integrating bridge/router function with bonding/balancing and WAN optimization in single platform
  • Control use of links with Traffic Steering policies, only applying optimizations when required (ex – TCP/A for GEO)
  • Automate recovery scenarios with no operator intervention or training once policy is set

Use Cases

  • Saturated microwave offload to satellite for SLA compliance, government requirements and improve end customer satisfaction
  • Drastically increase bandwidth capacity by combining existing GEO C-Band (or Ku-Band) with low cost, high capacity Ka-Band links
  • For non-stop production sites like mines and remote factories, combine wireline + terrestrial wireless + cellular data + satellite
  • For mobile applications like cruise, ferries, aviation or disaster recovery vehicles, always have two or more connections operational
