Share |



Eclipse is a multifrequency time division demand-assigned multiple access (MF-TDMA DAMA) satellite communication system designed for bandwidth-efficient, topology-flexible, Internet protocol-based networks providing converged communication services such as IP data, voice over IP (VoIP), videoconferencing, and various multimedia traffic via satellite. The Eclipse product family includes associated core building blocks for a cost-effective communications infrastructure. Eclipse provides the scalability, flexibility, and bandwidth optimization that allows users to adapt quickly to change in their communication requirements without replacing or reengineering the satellite transmission system.

The Eclipse TDMA technology supports a variety of network architectures and topologies. The topologies include real full mesh topology with peer-to-peer communications between any nodes in the network; star topology with all communications occurring between the hub and the remotes; and a hybrid topology employing a DVB outbound carrier from the hub to all remotes overlaid on the TDMA Star or Mesh topology.

Other features of Eclipse include

  • Multifrequency multirate agile TDMA
  • Highly synchronous architecture
  • Bandwidth-on-demand DAMA
  • Quality of service
  • Unique modulation technique
  • Automatic rain fade and power control
  • Internet protocol routing with multicast forwarding
  • L-band IF interface
  • Powerful network management system
  • Multilevel redundancy
  • Scalability
  • Open network architecture
