iDirect Evolution X5: Satellite Router



The Evolution X5 features iDirect’s highly efficient implementation of the DVB-S2 standard with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) on the outbound carrier. Along with deterministic MF-TDMA technology or SCPC Return, 2D 16-State FEC, the Evolution X5 maximizes the efficiency of satellite capacity to enable new opportunities.


  • Star topology
  • Two modes of operation: iFINITI or DVB-S2/ACM outbound
  • Deterministic MF-TDMA or SCPC Return channel
  • Extremely efficient 2D 16-state inbound coding
  • Advanced QoS and traffic prioritisation
  • Automatic end-to-end Uplink Power Control
  • Optional Spread Spectrum waveform technology supports very small antennas
