CDM-570-IPEN & CDM-570LIPEN Satellite Modems
INTRODUCTION
The CDM-570-IPEN and the CDM-570L-IPEN are IP-centric
satellite modems with data encryption that provide industry
leading performance and flexibility in a 1 RU package.
With their innovative architecture and support for advanced
capabilities, CDM-570-IPEN and CDM-570L-IPEN allow for
efficient IP networking and transport over satellite links while
supporting a wide range of applications and network topologies.
In addition to the 10/100Base-T Ethernet interface, a wide range
of data interfaces are available to support legacy applications
and assist in migrating from legacy to IP transport.
They are the platform of choice for enterprise users, Internet
service providers, satellite service providers, offshore and
maritime users and mobile operators for a wide range of
applications – communication-on-the-move, disaster recovery
and emergency communications, enterprise, satellite news
gathering, offshore and maritime communications and cellular
backhaul.
The advanced FPGA-based architecture along with the internal
Flash memory allows for easy field upgrades via the Ethernet
port.
For cellular backhaul, the CDM-570-IPEN and CDM-570L-IPEN
also offer E1 RAN Optimization as an option.

INTEGRATED IP CAPABILITY
With its innovative architecture and support for advanced
capabilities, CDM-570/L-IPEN allows for efficient IP networking
and transport over satellite. CDM-570/L-IPEN supports a wide
range of applications and network topologies.
DATA ENCRYPTION
Configurable on a per route basis, the modem supports 3xDES
data encryption for transmission security to prevent unauthorized
access to data transmitted over the satellite link .
HEADER COMPRESSION (OPTION)
Configurable on a per route basis, header compression reduces
the bandwidth required for VoIP by as much as 60%. Example: A
G.729 voice codec, operating at 8 kbps, requires 32 kbps
bandwidth once encapsulated into an IP/UDP/RTP frame. With
compression, the same voice call needs only 10.8 kbps total
WAN satellite bandwidth. Typical Web/HTTP traffic can also be
reduced by 10% via IP/TCP header compression.
PAYLOAD COMPRESSION (OPTION)
Configurable on a per route basis, payload compression can
reduce the required satellite bandwidth by up to 40%.
QUALITY OF SERVICE (QoS) (OPTION)
The modem supports multi-level QoS to reduce jitter and latency
for real time traffic, provides priority treatment to mission critical
applications and allows non-critical traffic to use the remaining
bandwidth. Supported modes are:
•
DiffServ – Industry-standard method of providing QoS
enabling seamless co-existence in networks that implement
DiffServ.
•
Max/Priority – Provides 8 levels of traffic prioritization with
the ability to limit maximum traffic per priority class
•
Min/Max – Provides a Committed Information Rate (CIR) to
each user defined class of traffic with the ability to allow a
higher burstable rate depending on availability
TURBO PRODUCT CODING
The optional Turbo Product Codec delivers significant
performance improvement when compared to Viterbi with
concatenated Reed-Solomon. It offers increased coding gain,
lower decoding delay, and significant bandwidth savings
compared to traditional FEC.
CDM-570-IPEN & CDM-570L-IPEN
MANAGEMENT
The modem supports SNMP, web-based and command line
interfaces for management. The modem can also be configured
and monitored from the front panel, or through the remote M&C
port (for non-IP mode of operation). Ten complete RF
configurations may be stored in the modem. An event log stores
alarm and status information in non-volatile RAM, while the Link
Statistics log stores link performance (Eb/No and AUPC
performance) for monitoring and reporting purposes.
E1 RAN OPTIMIZATION (POINT-TO-POINT)
Comtech EF Data’s RAN Optimization technology significantly
reduces the WAN (satellite) bandwidth required to carry an E1
bearer used for cellular backhaul. It provides the user complete
control over the desired level of optimization and link quality.
Depending on the traffic profile, typical bandwidth reduction of
30-35% can be achieved with little or no impact to the voice
quality. The WAN bandwidth can be reduced by as much as 60%
relative to the ingress data rate, allowing users to achieve
desired bandwidth savings and voice quality. The CDM-570/LIPEN provides usage statistics to assist with link monitoring.
E1 RAN optimization cannot be used simultaneously with the IP
Module.
G.703 CLOCK EXTENSION
Cellular networks require precise synchronization of base
stations, which is a challenge when using IP backhaul. Most
operators are forced to use GPS-based external equipment for
site synchronization. CDM-570/L-IPEN offers a G.703 clock
extension option that propagates a high stability reference from
Hub to the Remote. This process does not require additional
bandwidth.
EDMAC & AUPC OPERATION
The CDM-570/L-IPEN has the ability to monitor and control the
distant end of a point-to-point satellite link using EDMAC or
EDMAC2. User data is framed and bits are added to pass control,
status, and AUPC information.
Automatic Uplink Power Control (AUPC) can be used to
automatically adjust the transmit power based on the Eb/No
feedback from the distant end modem.
EDMAC operation is transparent to the user.
hub) can be switched from a shared Selective Time Division
Multiple Access (STDMA) mode to a dedicated Single Carrier Per
Channel (SCPC) connection via a variety of user defined policies
or triggers. This enables the network to more effectively handle
real-time connection-oriented applications and reduces both
latency and network congestion. Through VMS, dynamic pointto-point mesh connections can also be established between
remotes.
Upstream Switching
Through protocol classification in the remote terminals, the
modem initiates automatic switching. VMS establishes dSCPC
bandwidth based on policies that can be individually enabled on
a per-remote basis, or globally enabled. Policies can be
configured for a variety of applications such as VoIP, video
(VTC), or based on a load, or via a schedule, Type of Service
(ToS), or QoS rules such as IP port or IP address and protocol
type. Operators are able to set minimum and maximum data rates
for each remote as well as excess data rates for an initial
upstream switch.
Vipersat Operation Mode
Vipersat operation is enabled via a FAST feature code. Networks
can initially be deployed in fixed point-to-point or point-tomultipoint configurations. As the network grows and users wish to
take advantage of the bandwidth on demand savings by
implementing a Vipersat network, modems can easily be
upgraded to Vipersat mode. Vipersat mode provides for the
ability to operate in the following modulation/FEC rates:
STDMA
QPSK, Rate 3/4 Turbo FEC – all STDMA modes.
Data Rate Range: 64 kbps – 4.5 Mbps
BPSK, Rate 5/16 Turbo FEC – Entry Channel Mode only.
Data Rate Range: 32 kbps to 937 kbps.
SCPC
All Turbo Product Code FEC rates as detailed in the
following specifications
FAST FEATURE ENHANCEMENTS
The FAST codes make it easy to upgrade the modem capability
in the field. New features can be added on site, using FAST
access codes purchased from Comtech EF Data that can be
entered via the Front Panel.

VMS Network & Bandwidth Management
A Vipersat-powered network integrates this advanced modem
with a powerful network management tool, the Vipersat
Management System (VMS). In addition to the traditional
monitoring and control of the CDM-570/L-IPEN modems,
CDD-564/LEN and CDD-562LEN demodulators, the VMS allows
these devices to share bandwidth, and when needed, switch
automatically to a dedicated SCPC channel.
