Radyne Blasts Off SkyWire Gateway

September 12, 2007
Radyne introduced its new MDX420 Satellite Network Gateway at IBC2007.

The MDX420 uses Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) technology to provide full mesh, hub-and-spoke and hybrid network architectures.

It’s aimed at small to mid-sized networks, the company said, and designed for IP network LAN-LAN connectivity. It can be used in a “True” full mesh configuration allowing for hubless operation without the need for high-stability clocking, complex management and control or expensive central bandwidth allocation servers.

SkyWire will give smaller networks the ability to begin a hub-and-spoke network at a fraction of the cost of a conventional hub-and-spoke network, the company said.

Radyne CEO Myron Wagner said the company began booking orders in August.
