NovelSat Introduces LIBRA Dynamic Capacity Allocation Solution for Point-to-Multipoint Satellite Networks

New solution dynamically allocates real-time satellite capacity without remote terminal disconnection.

Ra’anana, Israel, March 8, 2018 – NovelSat, a world leader in satellite transmission technology, today announced the availability of NovelSat LIBRA, a new satellite network management engine that seamlessly provides real-time space segment capacity allocation without remote terminal disconnection or data loss. NovelSat LIBRA is based on SCPC architecture and a suite of NovelSat hardware and software that is optimized for Point-to-Multipoint satellite networks. This solution is designed to help satellite network operators ensure the best user experience in applications including IP trunking, cellular backhaul, oil & gas, military, maritime and homeland security.

SCPC-based satellite network architecture delivers guaranteed bandwidth, with low latency and low jitter, from a hub to multiple remote sites. These are necessary benefits for meeting Service Level Agreements (SLAs) in real-time applications such as VoIP, video conferencing, broadcast and Internet services. SCPC, however, leaves bandwidth unused when remote links are not fully loaded or are offline. On the other hand, TDMA-based networks offer more efficient satellite bandwidth utilization, but without the quality of SCPC.

NovelSat LIBRA provides network operators with a flexible solution for offering high quality Point-To-MultiPoint communication links which can be adjusted instantaneously based on dynamic usage demands. With this solution, a service manager can announce a different service capacity scenario for each site or group of sites; A site can have a Committed Info Rate (CIR) at all times, or a CIR with the option to increase capacity once available. In a third scenario, a remote site’s capacity can be defined to fall to a Minimum Information Rate if the site is lightly loaded or, alternatively, increase to a Maximum Information Rate if the site is overloaded. NovelSat LIBRA can accomplish this all automatically with zero data loss and without disconnection.
The NovelSat LIBRA management terminal monitors and manages the remote terminals’ resource utilization according to different scenarios per application, data load, pre-determined schedule, Quality of Service (QoS) rules, or manually using the NovelNet (NovelSat Network Management System) console.
