Allot Communications NetEnforcer® AC-500 Series 400 Mbps Bandwidth Management Devices

The Allot NetEnforcer® AC-500 is designed to manage Internet traffic on multiple Ethernet links at speeds of up to 400 Mbps.

These flexible devices bring carrier-class functionality and reliability to enterprise networks by providing real-time monitoring, reporting and policy enforcement.

AC-500 Main Features

  • Throughput of 10, 45, 100, and 200 Mbps (full duplex) with real-time monitoring and QoS management of up to 512,000 concurrent IP flows
  • Interface options support a variety of network topologies:
    • 2 x 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet ports (1 link) + 2 ports for cascading, high availability
    • 4 x 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet ports (2 links) + 4 ports for cascading, high availability
  • IPv4/IPv6 dual stack subscriber support for flexible network configuration
  • Powered by Allot’s Dynamic Actionable Recognition Technology (DART) engine, which provides granular visibility of user, application, device (including tethering), and network topology traffic
  • DART’s extensive signature library accurately identifies hundreds of Internet applications and protocols, including P2P, VoIP, streaming, gaming, instant messaging, web and enterprise applications
  • Automated, web-based update keeps the signature library up to date with the latest developments
  • Supports user-defined signatures based on HTTP attributes, as well as monitoring reports based on custom HTTP signatures
  • Real-time traffic monitoring and automatic alarms enable fast and accurate troubleshooting with the ability to trigger corrective actions
  • Works together with Allot Subscriber Management Platform (SMP) to provide real-time usage data for online and offline charging and subscriber policy management
  • Integrated URL filtering service blocks access to blacklisted and illegal web sites at the network level (see Allot WebSafe)
  • Integrated threat protection system prevents DNS blacklisting, isolates infected botnet hosts for clean-up, and surgically mitigates DDoS attacks (see Allot ServiceProtector)
  • Managed by Allot NetXplorer centralized management system

Newtec Sat3Play IP Broadband Hub

The Newtec Sat3Play IP Broadband Hub is an all IP communication platform supporting different IP services like internet access, VoIP, enterprise connectivity and multicasting.

The Sat3Play has been designed in order to be highly scalable for both traffic and management aspects. The platform consists of an IP Broadband Hub and multiple remote modems.

The platform offers:

  • “Pay as you grow” modularity
  • Support for multiple Virtual Network Operators
  • Carrier grade infrastructure with hot redundancy
  • Rapid network deployment
  • Optimal availability and efficiency


The Sat3Play® IP Broadband Hub provides the entire required infrastructure to receive and transmit IP data from and to the remote terminals. It includes support for multi-gateway and multi-spotbeam configurations.

The Hub manages the services offered to the customers in terms of Quality of Service, security and terminal population. It provides connectivity to the internet, private data networks, SIP or PSTN networks. The core component of the system is the Hub, which transmits a DVB-S2 carrier with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) for the forward link received by all remote terminals. The remote terminals use MF-TDMA channels to communicate with the Hub.

A Hub consists of one or more carrier blades including all equipment for the forward link, the corresponding return links and all additional traffic shaping and acceleration functionality. A carrier blade can be operated on Ka-, Ku-, C- or any other frequency band.

Pay As You Grow

The architecture and accompanied CAPEX investment model suits a smooth growth of the network. The satellite connectivity infrastructure is easy to install and enables immediate service deployment and large scale rollout.

Multiple Virtual Network Operators

The Newtec Sat3Play® management features the concept of multiple Virtual Network Operators, allowing network operators to wholesale parts of the system infrastructure and capacity to several Service Providers. Unique remote management tools allow these Service Providers to independently manage, control and monitor their resources in terms of subscriber management, QoS, terminal population, accounting and diagnostics.

Low Operational Cost

Sat3Play® offers high network efficiency reducing satellite capacity OPEX and an easy to operate hub minimizes operational expenditures. Newtec’s Network Optimisation technology enhances the IP performance of the system through traffic acceleration and compression. This results in a true broadband experience and reduces the required bandwidth. The work flow based network management focusses on the entire transaction and not just single or partial transaction. It results in proper management of the specific configuration item and minimizes the operational overhead.

Through the northbound interface operational tasks like reporting, accounting, terminal provisioning and bandwidth management can be fully automated and seamlessly integrated with OSS/BSS infrastructure.
