Overview

Diverse Cellular Options

Support for a variety of cellular technologies such as 2G, 3G and 4G with fallback options on both GSM and CDMA networks allow the flexibility of global deployment across carriers and regions. GPS support on select 4G LTE models enable position reporting for asset tracking as well as GIS integration.

Flexible Networking

Concurrent routing and bridging allow for the flexibility of deployment in a variety of network designs and topologies. Layer 2 (Ethernet) and Layer 3 GRE tunneling further enable the establishment of point to point VPNs across any type of networks, including the tunneling of Layer 2 automation protocols such as IEC 61850 GOOSE over cellular networks.

Hybrid Radios

The MDS Orbit MCR’s support for redundant private and cellular radio uplinks maximizes network availability for critical applications. It further allows the extension of cellular connectivity using licensed or unlicensed private networks to expand cellular network coverage deep into rural and deserted areas. Private radio options include unlicensed 900MHz Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum with throughput of up to 1.25Mbps, in addition to licensed narrowband in the 400MHz and 900MHz spectrum with QPSK, 16-QAM, and 64-QAM modulations with throughput up to 120Kbps.

Enterprise-Class Security

The MDS Orbit platform’s hardware and software is built on an extensive enterprise-class cyber security framework. Advanced features such as firewalling, VPNs, X.509 certificates, RADIUS authentication as well as secure boot and firmware provide advanced security for device, network and users.

Advanced Quality of Service

Advanced Quality of Service (QoS) allows the simultaneous handling of various applications while ensuring the preservation of each application’s priority and performance requirements. Layer 2, 3 and 4 classification enables the detailed identification of application types for maximum flexibility in addition to standard 802.1p and DSCP based classifications.

Intuitive User Interface

An easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI) allows for the quick provisioning and maintenance from a web browser. MDS Orbit’s wizards accelerate the configuration of complex network functionality by breaking down processes into simple, concise and automated steps
