Comtech H-Plus ODU Heights Remote Gateway
The Heights™ Networking Platform is engineered to elevate your services with unparalleled horsepower, efficiency and intelligence. The Heights platform was designed with the service provider and its multi-user environments in mind, from concept to operation, Heights combines our most efficient waveforms, header and payload compression engines, WAN optimization, proven dynamic bandwidth and power management along with bi-directional ACM capability to provide the highest user throughput, highest availability, and most optimal resource utilization available in the industry.
Heights meets the demands of those operating on traditional wide beams while providing distinct advantages for those with High Throughput Satellites (HTS) in their future. Heights is HTS ready, allowing service providers to leverage the significant increases in performance these new designs will offer for inbound links.
Purpose-built to unleash the potential of these tight spot beams, Heights remote gateways provide the strongest processing performance, maximizing user IP bits per Hz while realizing significant gains in user IP bits per Amplifier (BUC) Watt.
The H-Plus Remote Gateway is a dual-purpose modem. The H-Plus can be used as a Point-to-Point SCPC modem or can be purposed as a mid-tier Heights Remote Gateway. It is capable of providing high-performance for low to medium capacity sites at an attractive CAPEX. It supports multiple transmit throughput tiers up to 10 Mbps, which is managed via centralized licensing capability for ease of use. This scheme allows users to standardize on a single remote platform for low to medium capacity sites, simplifying stocking and sparing.
Heights Dynamic Network Access (H-DNA / Heights Mode Only)
H-DNA is an evolutionary dynamic network access technology designed for Heights return links that:
• Rapidly adapts to changing environments
• Delivers superior efficiency & Quality of Experience (QoE)
• Instantly assigns capacity based on network-wide demand
• Intelligently utilizes total network bandwidth at all times
H-DNA is designed to provide network wide fast switching on a sub-second interval making the process seamless and transparent to end users for real-time as well as non real-time applications. H-DNA leverages Comtech’s high performance VersaFEC®-2 waveforms with ACM, dynamic power control, high performance packet processing, network wide multi-tier QoS and IP optimization technology to enable unprecedented bandwidth efficiency and superior QoE. H-DNA fast switching and bandwidth allocation mechanism allows a Heights network to respond rapidly to changing traffic and link conditions while maintaining lowest latency and jitter for superior QoE and maximum bandwidth utilization efficiency.
H-DNA is fast, flexible and uncompromising, delivering unprecedented benefits to users and service providers alike.
SCPC Mode of Operation
The H-Plus can be used as a Heights Remote Gateway or a true SCPC point-to-point modem and is interoperable with another H-Plus or Comtech’s award-winning SCPC modems such as the CDM-625, CDM-625A and CDM-425 modems. This is very beneficial for users who anticipate growing their network or need more flexibility or don’t have access to a Heights Hub.
