UHP-230 is a universal VSAT router with Software-Defined Architecture pioneered by UHP Networks. The device packs industry-highest processing capability into a very compact size with power consumption under 12W. It can process up to 450 Mbps of aggregate traffic. UHP-230 comprises two DVB demodulators, four TDMA burst demodulators, a universal TDMA/SCPC modulator and a powerful IP router capable of processing over 190 000 IP packets per second (PPS). The high processing capability allows implementation of uniquely efficient protocols for network access, resource allocation and data encapsulation as well as support for advanced modulation and coding.

UHP-230 is a truly universal router which can operate as a star or mesh TDM/TDMA remote or as a Tx/Rx SCPC IP modem, or as a node in a Hubless TDMA (full mesh) network, or as a building block (universal controller) in a large TDM/TDMA Hub. This unique device can work as a fully-fledged TDM/TDMA Hub with one Outbound TDM and up to 4 Inbound TDMA carriers.
Multiple demodulators allow simultaneous reception of two DVB (TDM or SCPC) carriers and a group of up to 4 mesh TDMA carriers from two distinct satellite beams or from two antennas. This makes UHP-230 an optimum choice for TDMA Mesh networks and also for hierarchical networks with multiple DVB carriers.
UHP-230 router is supplied in a compact 1U chassis for installation in a standard 19 inch rack. Built-in AC power supply with high power rating and 10 MHz frequency reference ensure reliable operation of the router itself and of the outdoor RF equipment from multiple vendors. Low power consumption, optional DC power input, and uniquely fast start on power-up facilitate use of alternative power sources, such as solar batteries.
UHP Smart Redundancy facilitates self-healing architecture for a single VSAT Hub and also for multiple geographically diverse (redundant) Hubs. Architecture of the Hub with Smart Redundancy is not different from a traditional Hub architecture, but all the controllers are universal and can assume any role. The NMS dynamically assigns specific roles to the universal controllers. Smart Redundancy dramatically increases network availability level while only requiring a very modest investment.
