The Global Xpress Link Emulator is a one-box-solution that replaces terminal, satellite link and ground station. All you need to set up a test or demonstration of your Global Xpress applications is the Global Xpress Link Emulator box incl. software, a laptop to run the Global Xpress application, an Internet connection and cables to connect.
The Global Xpress Link Emulator enables application testing and verification on an emulated Global Xpress link, as if the user is connected via the live Global Xpress network. You configure the Global Xpress Link Emulator through a web server, embedded in the Global Xpress Link Emulator hardware unit. The web user interface allows the user to set up a range of real-life scenarios such as network congestion and bandwidth degradation. The application’s performance and throughput are presented as visual graphs and counters.
The Global Xpress Link Emulator enables you to verify your GX solutions’ functionality in any scenario – without use of a terminal and airtime. Due to the closed test environment the risk of exposure on the live Global Xpress network is also eliminated.
The tool offers a user-friendly network sandbox environment and facilitates exchange of IP data via an emulated Global Xpress connection providing Global Xpress specific emulation of service plans, bandwidth and latency. This allows you to test more efficiently and at a lower cost, compared to on-air testing, as you can set up and reproduce the exact network conditions you want to test as many times as you need.
On the live network, you will undoubtedly encounter varying Quality of Service. Factors such as weather fade, terrain or less than optimal equipment may lead to latency, jitter, dropout or just generally low bandwidth. Applications must be designed to cope with these many variable factors and still produce a useful response to the user. The Global Xpress Link Emulator allows you to test any scenario necessary with different levels of signal degradation.
