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.
