HIGH SPEED BROADBAND - INTERNET VIA SATELLITE  LATIN AMERICA & CARIBBEAN


 
We provide Internet connectivity via satellite for ISP's, Networks, Business & Residencial, Internet cafes & other customers requiring high-speed Broadband access.

Teleport Services


We provide a range of teleport services from the international teleport facility in six continents. Internet connectivity, int'l data circuits, and voice termination are the most common uses. Feel free to
contact us  with your specific requirements. Following is the list of satellites currently accessed by the teleports:

  • Satmex V - C and Ku-band
  • IS-805
  • IS-907
  • Pas-1R
  • Satmex VI
  • SES Global/New Skies
  • Loral Skynet
  • Sat-Ge


Internet Connectivity
The most common application of the EX4U Telecom teleport is to provide satellite connectivity from a remote location to the US Internet backbone. All teleports have fiber connectivity to the Internet, and in Teleport Services turn by uplinking and downlinking a satellite signal to the remote location, then that remote location is connected to high-speed Internet. We are currently providing this service to ISP's as well as private companies. Circuits can be set up to run with the same transmit/receive data rates (symmetric) or with asymmetric transmit and receive data rates.

International Data Circuits

We can provide direct connectivity from corporate headquarters to remote sites located in Latin America and/or Africa / Asia. Typically a customer will connect the our teleports to the corporate Teleport Services headquarters via a dedicated terrestrial data circuit. We will install a VSAT earth station at the remote location(s), providing the customer with end-to-end connectivity. We will provide all of the equipment with no capital cost to the customer, simply one monthly fee covers all equipment and service.

Voice Termination

We can also provide voice connectivity at the teleport hub, to provide voice termination for the customer. This connectivity can be provided via dedicated voice lines or with IP-voice.

VOIP

  • Minutes Termination
  • We provide satellite and teleport services for customers wishing to terminate minutes world wide. We have extensive minutes experience and can provide technical support in all aspects of the minutes termination business.
  • We provide Termination, Traffic and Billing.
  • We provide hosted PBX, DIDs, FolloMw, Unified Messaging, SIP/Video, SIP/Video conferencing (fixed and all mobile) service.
  • Do you have traffic and need a route?
  • Do you need Voip billing services?
       
Monitor and Control
EX4U Telecom offers off-site and on-site system monitoring, both automated and manual.  Do you need an email or text automatically sent to you when a specified device stops responding?  Do you need to monitor bandwidth usage?  We can offer simple alerts as well as dedicated off-site system monitoring tools Benefits of off-site system monitoring is that the monitor is not network dependent.  If your monitoring system is on your network and your network goes down, the monitor will not be able to send an alert!  Use off-site monitoring from us and avoid costly down time due to lack of notification.


Server Leasing

  • We are very flexible and offers several options.
  • We can custom build a server to client specifications.
  • We can lease a pre-build dedicated server.

VSAT  -  Single channel per carrier (SCPC)

SCPC Solutions
A private, secure point-to-point VSAT solution that provides a dedicated link and dedicated bandwidth between two locations.This VSAT system is Ideal for static environments, where communications requirements are clearly established - supports voice, data, video communications.

SCPC refers to using a single signal at a given frequency and bandwidth. Most often, this is used on broadcast satellites to indicate that radio stations are not multiplexed as subcarriers onto a single video carrier, but instead independently share a transponder. It may also be used on other communications satellites, or occasionally on non-satellite transmissions.

In an SCPC system, satellite bandwidth is dedicated to a single source. This makes sense if it is being used for something like satellite radio, which broadcasts continuously. Another very common application is voice, where a small amount of fixed bandwidth is required. However, it does not make sense for burst transmissions like satellite internet access or telemetry, since a customer would have to pay for the satellite bandwidth even when they were not using it.

Where multiple access is concerned, SCPC is essentially FDMA. Some applications use SCPC instead of TDMA, because they require guaranteed, unrestricted bandwidth.

Advantages:

  • simple and reliable technology
  • low-cost equipment
  • any bandwidth (up to a full transponder)
  • usually 64 kbit/s to 50 Mbit/s
  • easy to add additional receive sites (earth stations)


MCPC
With multiple channels per carrier (MCPC), several subcarriers are combined into a single bitstream before being modulated onto a carrier transmitted from a single location to one or more remote sites. This uses time-division multiplexing (TDM). It is a retronym of sorts, as it was the only way radio networks were transmitted ("piggybacked" on television networks) until SCPC.
In digital radio and digital television, an ensemble or other multiplex or multichannel stations can be considered MCPC, though the term is generally only applied to satellites.
The major disadvantage of MCPC is that all of the signals must be sent to a single place first, then combined for retransmission — a major reason for using SCPC instead.

 
VSAT  -  TDMA  Solutions
Also known as Single Hop, bandwidth-on-demand technology. A fully meshed network solution allows all connected sites to communicate directly with each other, using a shared pool of bandwidth & optimizing performance and cost effectiveness. The VSAT TDMA system is ideally suited to regionally distributed remote operations that need to communicate both locally and centrally but whose demand for network capacity fluctuates – supports voice, data, video communications - eLearning and telemedicine.
 
       
VSAT Star networks (topology) are one of the most common computer network topologies. In its simplest form, a star network consists of one central switch, hub or computer, which acts as a conduit to transmit messages. This consists of a central node, to which all other nodes are connected; this central node provides a common connection point for all nodes through a hub. Thus, the hub and leaf nodes, and the transmission lines between them, form a graph with the topology of a star. If the central node is passive, the originating node must be able to tolerate the reception of an echo of its own transmission, delayed by the two-way transmission time (i.e. to and from the central node) plus any delay generated in the central node. An active star network has an active central node that usually has the means to prevent echo-related problems.
The star topology reduces the chance of network failure by connecting all of the systems to a central node. When applied to a bus-based network, this central hub rebroadcasts all transmissions received from any peripheral node to all peripheral nodes on the network, sometimes including the originating node. All peripheral nodes may thus communicate with all others by transmitting to, and receiving from, the central node only. The failure of a transmission line linking any peripheral node to the central node will result in the isolation of that peripheral node from all others, but the rest of the systems will be unaffected. It is also designed with each node (file servers, workstations, and peripherals) connected directly to a central network hub, switch, or concentrator.
Data on a star network passes through the hub, switch, or concentrator before continuing to its destination. The hub, switch, or concentrator manages and controls all functions of the network. It also acts as a repeater for the data flow. This configuration is common with twisted pair cable. However, it can also be used with coaxial cable or optical fibre cable.

Advantages
  • Better performance: star topology prevents the passing of data packets through an excessive number of nodes. At most, 3 devices and 2 links are involved in any communication between any two devices. Although this topology places a huge overhead on the central hub, with adequate capacity, the hub can handle very high utilization by one device without affecting others.
  • Isolation of devices: Each device is inherently isolated by the link that connects it to the hub. This makes the isolation of individual devices straightforward and amounts to disconnecting each device from the others. This isolation also prevents any non-centralized failure from affecting the network.
  • Benefits from centralization: As the central hub is the bottleneck, increasing its capacity, or connecting additional devices to it, increases the size of the network very easily. Centralization also allows the inspection of traffic through the network. This facilitates analysis of the traffic and detection of suspicious behavior.
  • Easy to detect faults and to remove parts.
  • No disruptions to the network when connecting or removing devices.
       
 
  

VSAT Mesh networking (topology) is a type of networking where each node must not only capture and disseminate its own data, but also serve as a relay for other nodes, that is, it must collaborate to propagate the data in the network.
A mesh network can be designed using a flooding technique or a routing technique. When using a routing technique, the message propagates along a path, by hopping from node to node until the destination is reached. To ensure all its paths' availability, a routing network must allow for continuous connections and reconfiguration around broken or blocked paths, using self-healing algorithms. A mesh network whose nodes are all connected to each other is a fully connected network. Mesh networks can be seen as one type of ad hoc network. Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) and mesh networks are therefore closely related, but MANET also have to deal with the problems introduced by the mobility of the nodes.
The self-healing capability enables a routing based network to operate when one node breaks down or a connection goes bad. As a result, the network is typically quite reliable, as there is often more than one path between a source and a destination in the network. Although mostly used in wireless scenarios, this concept is also applicable to wired networks and software interaction.

Wireless mesh networks
Wireless mesh networks were originally developed for military applications and are typical of mesh architectures. Over the past decade the size, cost, and power requirements of radios has declined, enabling more radios to be included within each device acting as a mesh node. The additional radios within each node enable it to support multiple functions such as client access, backhaul service, and scanning (required for high speed handover in mobile applications). Additionally, the reduction in radio size, cost, and power has enabled the mesh nodes to become more modular—one node or device now can contain multiple radio cards or modules, allowing the nodes to be customized to handle a unique set of functions and frequency bands.

C2020 Satellite BUC 20 Watt

Features

  • Complete BUC for L-band Earth Stations
  • Low Cost
  • Built-in Monitor and Control Capability
  • Converter and Power Amplifier in Single Housing
  • Digital Gain Compensation

Description

The C-band 20 Watt BUC, model C2020, is designed to provide a low-cost, high-performance solution for satellite communications' networks. The BUC is designed with a 950-1525 MHz input, to be able to interface with a wide range of commercially-available L-band modems. The BUC performs a block upconversion of the input frequency band to the transmit range of 5850 - 6425 MHz.

The BUC is designed to mount on the kingpost or feed support arm of the antenna. The Type-N output can be connected to the feed very simply with a heliax or other low-loss RF cable.

Monitor and Control

The operation of the BUC is controlled by a microprocessor-based computer mounted inside the BUC. This M&C card controls the operation of the BUC, including the built-in digital gain control. Via the RS-232 interface, the operator can control the transmit and receive gains of the unit, the transmit and receive frequencies, and the power amplifier mute. In addition, the operator can monitor the status of the BUC.

Built-in Surge Suppressor

Each BUC includes a built-in AC line surge suppressor in series with the AC input of the unit. The surge suppressor is designed to work in conjunction with the customer UPS to insure that the BUC continues to operate during and after power line spikes and surges.

Power Supply

The 20 Watt BUC is designed to operate from 115 V/230 VAC via an autoranging power supply. Careful design has resulted in low power consumption by the BUC, reducing the size of fans needed for fan cooling. This greatly improves the reliability of the unit and reduces the need for periodic site visits for maintenance.

Redundancy

Each BUC has built-in programmed intelligence to allow fully redundant operation. This integrated and economical approach brings redundant capability to a level suitable for even low cost remote stations. The addition of a second BUC, appropriate waveguide switches/cables, and the waveguide control unit results in an economical redundant earth station.

Installation

We have installation kits to mount the BUC to a wide range of available antennas. These installation kits include detailed drawings and installation procedures for installing the BUC on specific antennas. The BUC weighs approximately 32 lbs. Our technical support can provide assistance in determining the best location for mounting the BUC.

When the installation kit is ordered, all necessary connectors are provided for the required cables. Supply of all the miscellaneous parts required for the installation helps speed the process and provides a consistent, high-quality installation every time.
