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.
