Newtec Elevation EL830 PEP-Box Gateway
The Newtec Elevation EL830 PEP-Box® Gateway is a Performance Enhancing Proxy (PEP) appliance that combines a number of advanced traffic enhancement and shaping functionalities for the end points of point-to-point and point-to-multipoint satellite IP network, such as IP trunking networks. The EL830 is to be used in conjunction with the EL840 PEP-Box Server at the other end of the transmission link.
TCP and HTTP, the most widely used protocols in the Internet, show very poor performance when being used over high latency and lossy networks, such as satellite networks. As a result users experience slow download speed and surfing performance. Moreover valuable satellite capacity is not used in the most efficient way.
The ideal solution to overcome such drawbacks is the Newtec Elevation EL830 PEP-Box® Gateway. The EL830 integrates a traffic enhancement technology that accelerates any TCP based transmissions over high latency networks. At the same time the EL830 Gateway greatly reduces the TCP data traffic on both forward and return link by means of data compression as well as TCP packet aggregation and session multiplexing. This is achieved by using ETCP (Enhanced TCP) instead of TCP over the satellite link.
The Newtec Elevation EL830 PEP-Box can also be used in conjunction with the EL860 VCM/ACM shaper and encapsulator, in networks where the transmission bandwidth is varying dynamically. Thanks to the Cross Layer Optimization capability, the EL830 dynamically adjust its performance according to the changing bandwidth availability. As a result, zero packet loss transmission can be ensured.
The EL830 comes with two additional option packages: The fi rst option package is called Advanced and performs the acceleration of popular protocols such as HTTP, FTP, POP3 and SMB (CIFS). The HTTP prefetching technology enhances the web surfi ng experience to an extent that the download time for a web site can be reduced by more than 70 %, so the user has the impression of surfi ng via regular DSL or Cable based Internet connections. On top of that, the Advanced option package of the EL830 PEP-Box® Gateway can secure any data traffic exchanged via the network by building up an encrypted VPN between the hub and the remote sites.
The second option package is called Premium and regroups all the features of the default and Advance versions in addition to a network policing engine. This engine allows the distribution of the overall available bandwidth among services and end-users according to confi gurable criteria, e.g. prioritization of VoIP traffi c.
The Elevation PEP-Box® appliances are based on the TelliNet and TelliShape of the Tellitec® IP software product family.
