8 Evolution X1 Features X1 Remote Indoor and Outdoor versions Low power requirements Bundled with Universal LNB/BUC AC or DC power supplies Core Feature set DVB-S2 outbound, up to 2 Msps inbound Single client or limited routing VLAN support, DHCP relay server Robust QoS Multicast up to 40Mbps Extended L-Band Interface Compact, low-power remotes ideal for large-scale networks

9 Evolution X1 Outdoor Features Outdoor hardened remote IP67 enclosure for extreme temperatures Pole mountable Power supply options IP67 enclosure AC and 12/24V DC power Optimized for low power Powers up to a 3W BUC Solar/battery capable Hardened remote ideal for outdoor usage

10 X1 Web iSite Web-based iSite for remote commissioning No need for PC client on the installers laptop Streamlined information Dashboard Status – Modem, IP, Ethernet and Events Commissioning – Angle calculator, antenna pointing & cross-pol Admin – Options files New web interface for easier installation

11 Narrowband XLC-M License Optimal support for networks with a large number of small return channels New Multi-channel demod Narrowband license Supports up to sixteen 128ksps return channels Existing XLC-M line card Benefits Increases hub scalability – single hub, thousands of remotes Optimized for small return channels Reduces cost per remote site Limits power and bandwidth required at remote site with smaller antennas and more affordable ODU

12 QoS Enhancements Benefits Reduces bandwidth to keep idle remotes in network Improves efficiency while maintaining network reliability Do not have to reacquire into network like sleep mode Guaranteed SLAs

13 iDX 3.1 Summary New cost-effective, compact, and low-power remotes New web interface for easier installation Improved Return Channel Economics with a narrowband line card Non-contention based for improved efficiency and network reliability Leverage your iDirect infrastructure for large, narrowband applications

15 iDX 3.2 & X7: XPECT MORE! Network Control and Efficiency Adaptive TDMA returns Outbound DVB-S2 roll off enhancement Performance with X7 Significant increase in performance High end features for demanding use cases

16 Adaptive TDMA Overview Before Inroute Groups (IRG) consisted of homogeneous carriers In iDX 3.2 IRG can consist of heterogeneous carriers Benefits Enables terminals to achieve their max speed No need to assume the worst case scenario Greater dynamic range in network design Different symbol rates Different MODCODs Different SS factors

17 Adaptive TDMA Higher Control and Efficiency Optimize network performance in any condition Up to three dynamic “profiles” or compositions Clear sky Fade Heavy fade (a safety net) Benefits Margin is converted to bandwidth efficiency Availability is maintained via dynamic profiles Unprecedented control to fulfill SLAs

18 Outbound Enhancement Reduced Roll Off Factor New, selectable roll-off factor Options include 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% (existing) Dependent on carrier size Example: 36MHz Transponder Increase usable symbol rate by 4Msps Benefits 10Mbps gains in IP throughput in 36 MHz TXP Up to 13% gain in outbound throughput for <36 MHz DVB-S2 Outbound (full transponder) DVB-S2 Outbound (full transponder) DVB-S2 Outbound (full transponder) DVB-S2 Outbound (full transponder) 30Msps36MHz 20% ROF 34Msps 5% ROF

19 Introducing X7 “The Need for Speed” Insatiable demand for connectivity “Enterprises, organizations and consumers are devouring satellite bandwidth as quickly as service provides can deliver it.” -Simon Bull, COMSYS, Sep’12 Noticeable in key applications Cruise & Super-Yacht Off-Shore Drilling Macrocells Mining More bandwidth intensive applications Demand for more bandwidth continues to grow

20 X7 Overview Multiple AC/DC Power Supply Options 19” 1RU Chassis Embedded 8-port VLAN Aware Switch ATDMA/SCPC Return Channel Dual DVB-S2 Demodulators Console Port Multiple Image Embedded Web I/F Next generation remote optimized for mobile, enterprise grade, bandwidth intensive applications Improved PPS

21 iDX 3.2 Launch Plan iDX – (Limited Availability Release) Support for X7 HLC support limited to XLC-10/ XLC-M Heterogeneous carriers, 1 composition group iDX – (GA Release) Extend support to all Evolution remotes Extend support to XLC-11, eMxDx HLCs Expand from 1 to 3 composition groups iDX – (GA Release) X7 support for SCPC Return and 2nd Demod

22 iDX 3.2 Summary Performance Enable terminals to achieve their max speed Fuel bandwidth intensive applications Refined Network Control Margin is converted to bandwidth efficiency Availability maintained via dynamic profiles More control to achieve SLAs Success is Yours More throughput enables higher performance services Opens up new revenue streams Greater efficiencies means lower bandwidth costs

24 The Product Strategy Challenge This explosion in new opportunities brings growing diversity in requirements Emerging satellite programs New HTS capacity New opportunities Active migration planning Push the performance curve Operation in blended networks Huge breadth in use cases A simple example Carrier limits One size doesn’t fit all…

25 Introducing a Multi-Product Line Strategy

26 High-Level Architecture Common NG NMS Common Hub Platform X3/5 NG Aero Remote X1/4/7 XLC-M XLC-11 VLC-R VLC-T Web Apps Web API Web GUI Evolution Velocity

27 Product Differentiating Attributes Network Size Remote Performance Remote Performance Networking Architecture Networking Architecture Beam Switching Beam Switching Evolution Velocity 100K remotes per NMS 300 remotes per PP 7.5Msps per I/B XLC 100K remotes per NMS 2,000 remotes per PP 30Msps per I/B VLC 5.875Msps I/B 20 Mb/s I/B TPUT 15 Msps I/B* 45 Mb/s I/B TPUT* Native VLAN/GQoS IPv6 via L2oS* Native VLAN/GQoS Native IPv4/6 BGP via L2oS* Native BGP FAP via L2oS* Native FAP MAP-based 120 sec switch MAP-based 10 sec switch 45Msps O/B 100Msps O/B* * future development

28 Providing Choices Bandwidth choices Some customers are shifting from Mb/s to Gb/s Some customers are optimizing around Kb/s No compromises No longer a compromised approach to performance No longer forced upgrades for those that don’t need them Some customers will likely choose both We must still protect your investment in iDirect Common Hub, unified NG NMS

29 Implications for Engineering Structural changes to the roadmap Evolution lives on… Velocity emerges as a new product line Unified NG NMS for both Role of organization & architecture Parallel developments Quarterly release cycle Sustaining Engineering Timely support of existing releases

30 Plan for Velocity Success with Global Xpress on Velocity 1.0-LA Other HTS programs (EPIC) Key enhancements with Velocity GA Improved scale/performance More powerful hardware VLC-T, VLC-R Dual purpose remotes High-Speed COTM, Spread spectrum NG aero remote iDX 3.2 improvements set the stage for HTS

31 Bringing it Together with the NG NMS An entirely new architecture Increased scale, performance Robust Web-services interface HTML5-based GUI Consistent APIs, Web Apps Emphasis on the user experience Unified management platform Evolution Velocity SatManage

32 Broad Beam Satellites iDX Large Regional Beams with Fixed Capacity No frequency reuse Transponder shared for entire footprint Internet iVantage TM NMS Hub System

33 Spot Beam Satellites Universal Hub System Internet NG NMS Dedicated, High Bandwidth, Feeder Link Dedicated Feeder Link Frequency Reuse Several Smaller Beams=Affordable Satellite Capacity

34 A Very Exciting Time Our industry is poised for growth New HTS deployments and architectures New capacity New opportunities Product strategy that embraces the opportunity Evolution Velocity NG NMS Together…we’re in a great position to win!
