Debuting at the D.C. trade show is Advantech Wireless' WaveSwitch™

Advantech Wireless has unveiled their WaveSwitch™ “on-the-fly” SATCOM Waveform Switching Technology for their ASAT II Multiservice VSAT System.

To address the high complexity of new generation multiservice IP broadband satellite deployments, Advantech Wireless introduced WaveSwitch™, the firm's novel service modeling architecture that dynamically optimizes waveform assignment to achieve the highest application performance, with minimum satellite bandwidth resources and the highest network utilization.

With WaveSwitch™, no manual intervention is required. The system will dynamically assign from Advantech Wireless’ RCSX™ selection of waveforms - ASCPC™, MF-TDMA, and SCPC DVB-S2/S2X . WaveSwitch™ seamlessly optimizes the access technology to the dynamic and varying customer application requirements in real time, allocating bandwidth from a common space segment pool.

WaveSwitch™ on-the-fly waveform and access method switching technology, enabled the company to add new dimensions to bandwidth allocation decisions in addition to data rate requirements, applying in real-time the most efficient and best suited waveform for dynamic application requirements, automating this previously manual selection process. This enables Advantech Wireless to achieve quality SATCOM services at the highest efficiency and network utilization.

The ASAT II™ System’s unique WaveSwitch™ technology, coupled with the 3D-BoD™ multidimensional bandwidth-on-demand scheduling and bandwidth allocation system, represent a major breakthrough in the way VSAT platforms are optimized, according to Oscar Glottmann, the CMO Satellite Networks Business Unit at Advantech Wireless, who then added that current generation VSAT systems typically partition bandwidth space segment by waveform, and usually waveform selection is done at provisioning.
