A single 1RU unit UHP-240 houses two UC and can implement up to two OC and up to two MCD-IC. Extra Outroutes and Inroutes can be added by growing the number of UC with appropriate licenses. The Hub can support any redundancy scheme for any of its elements, and also geographical redundancy for multiples Hubs.
The Network Management System (NMS) runs on a Linux server. It is separate from the Hub, so it’s failure would not bring down the VSAT network. While the NMS optional in a basic Hub, it is required in the high-end Hub designed to control a network operating over High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) with multiple spot beams.
