Product Description

The HX200 is a high-performance satellite router designed to provide carrier-grade IP services using dynamically assigned high band width satellite IP connectivity. The HX200 satellite router provides flexible Quality of Service (QoS) features that can be tailored to the network applications at each individual remote router, such as Adaptive Constant Bit Rate (CBR) bandwidth assignment to deliver high-quality, low jitter bandwidth for real-time traffic such as Voice over IP (VoIP) or video conferencing. With integrated IP features including RIPv1, RIPv2, BGP, DHCP, NAT/PAT, and DNS Server/Relay functionality, together with a high-performance satellite modem, the HX200 is a full-featured IP Router with an integrated high-performance satellite router. The HX200 enables high performance IP connectivity for a variety of applications including cellular backhaul, MPLS extension services, virtual leased line, mobile services and other high-bandwidth solutions.
