SkyCelerator Model 1280 Network Accelerator
The iDirect SkyCelerator Network Accelerator delivers high performance TCP acceleration and compression to maximize satellite bandwidth.
The SkyCelerator product family is an ideal solution for government and enterprises alike that need to deploy highly secure networks able to handle advanced encryption or VPN solutions without compromising TCP performance.
Designed to proactively answer the challenges that come with TCP acceleration of encrypted data, SkyCelerator is a high-performance, standards based device that fully integrates the Space Communications Protocol Specification-Transport Protocol (SCPS-TP), high ratio real time data compression, HTTP Acceleration, pre-fetching and other link and performance enhancement techniques.
SkyCelerator Rear Panel
SkyCelerator provides a superior user experience while also maximizing use of expensive satellite bandwidth resources. It’s fully optimized to work within iDirect networks at speeds up to 45 Mbps for hub side appliances and up to 16 Mbps at the remote side.
High Compatibility Eases Deployment
Based on standards such as SCPC-TP and I-PEP SkyCelerator is highly compatible with existing TCP/IP systems and fully proven to work within iDirect’s network of hubs and remotes for quick, easy deployment.
With advanced compression techniques such as fast start technology, header compression, intelligent rate control and enhanced retransmission scheme SkyCelerator maximizes the use of bandwidth resources that can result in bandwidth savings when compared to other TCP acceleration solutions.
The SkyCelerator product family can be deployed in star, mesh and point-to-point SCPC networks. The models 1280 and 1150 are designed for different throughput rates and can be deployed either at the hub or the remote, providing maximum network design flexibility.
SkyCelerator is highly configurable and customizable, with features such as automatic peer discovery and redundancy options. Best of all, it can be remotely managed efficiently and effectively, just like iDirect’s entire network.
For end users this means, not only do they have access to all of their critical applications. They can also rest assured that they’ll operate with the same speed and functionality they’ve come to expect, all in a fully secure environment.
