The DW6030 Serial Appliance is a cost-effective solution for enabling serial data connectivity together with high-speed broadband IP access in a DIRECWAY satellite network. Designed as a simple add-on to the DIRECWAY family of terminals, the DW6030 Serial Appliance supports up to four serial ports with a variety of applications and data protocols. By enabling the simultaneous support of serial data and IP Ethernet over the DIRECWAY system, the DW6030 is the perfect solution for integrating legacy serial devices within an IP network, including devices such as credit card scanners, SCADA terminals, lottery terminals or gas station pump controllers. With the DW6030 Serial Appliance, the DIRECWAY system can supply serial data and broadband IP to anywhere in the world and provide highly efficient, two-way satellite service for enterprises of any size.

To provide good performance over the satellite link, the serial protocols over the four RS-232 interfaces are "spoofed" (terminated locally) by the DW6030 Serial Appliance. Supported protocols include SDLC, X.25, and a variety of asynchronous protocols for credit card devices and environmental controllers. And with Automatic Dial Backup, the DW6030 Serial Appliance has the ability to provide virtual 100% availability.

In conjunction with a DW6030 serial appliance, the DW satellite terminal delivers broadband access to multiple users via IP Ethernet while simultaneously supporting serial data traffic. The DW terminal supports many IP applications including content delivery, multicasting, music distribution, distance learning and training, digital media streaming, file transfer, Internet, and VPN/intranet access. The DW terminal receives and transmits data through the system's antenna and outdoor electronics, over the satellite, and via the DIRECWAY Network Operations Center (NOC). TCP connections can be initiated to or from hosts at the remote locations. Users' intranet communications are secure and isolated from other enterprise intranets and from remotes accessing the "public" Internet operating on the same network.

The DIRECWAY system complies with the industry's DVB-S standard, and therefore, it is very easy to customize a wide range of outroute (terminal receive rate) data rates by choosing different symbol and FEC coding rates. This receive rate is scalable up to 48 Mbps while the return channel (terminal transmit rate) can be 128 or 256 kbps. DIRECWAY terminals provide an integrated broadband LAN solution to Windows, UNIX, MAC, and other platforms running IP over Ethernet. The DIRECWAY terminal passes IP data packets to and from any IP device on the LAN and has the functionality of a typical IP router.

DIRECWAY® DW6030 Terminal Key System Features
