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 New cost-effective, compact, and low-power remotes
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

14 iDX 3.2 Highlights

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 20% ROF 5% ROF 34Msps 30Msps DVB-S2 Outbound (full transponder) DVB-S2 Outbound (full transponder) 36MHz

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

21 iDX 3.2 Launch Plan iDX 3.2.0 – (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 Refined Network Control Success is Yours
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

28 Providing Choices Bandwidth choices No compromises
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
iVantageTM NMS iDX Internet Hub System Large Regional Beams with Fixed Capacity No frequency reuse Transponder shared for entire footprint

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