Government Network Service Device (NSD)

The first software-defined tactical networking solution for use with Inmarsat’s new Global Xpress (GX) satellite network services

Solution Overview

The Government NSD combines Klas Telecom’s ATLAS virtualization platform allied with a 5th Gen Intel® Dual-Core virtual machine server that enables Cisco 5921 ESR routing and Cisco VDS-IS content distribution in an easy-to-use, two-pound, ruggedized module. The Government NSD provides a smart interconnection between proprietary military networks and the worldwide, high speed GX family of satellites. In addition to GX, the Government NSD also terminates BGAN services for L-band links and enables Inmarsat Over-The-Top (OTT) services like GX Voice, managed browsing services, content delivery and applications.

Key Features

  • 5th Gen Intel® Dual-Core™ i3-5010U (1.8GHz) processor with 8 GB RAM and virtualization
  • Four Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Removable SSD storage
  • DisplayPort (DP++) interface, HDMI and VGA supported via adaptors
  • Console management interface
  • 2 x USB 3.0 Type A interfaces
  • VIK (Voyager Ignition Key) secure removable configuration storage

Applications

The Government NSD is currently deployed by the thousands to collect, store, process and transmit voice, video and data forward of disadvantage links for local networking capability. With the addition of virtual Cisco 5915 ESR routing, the Government NSD is the smallest routing/server/compute module on the market.

  • MILSATCOM
  • UAV, maritime, land force operations

Sample Configurations

VoyagerVMm routing/compute connected to BGAN and GX terminal with VoyagerESm switching to IP devices

In this configuration, the VoyagerVMm compute module is connected to the VoyagerESm switch. These modules can be standalone or installed in a Voyager2, Voyager8 or VoyagerECK chassis. An encryption device can also be connected to provide a secure red/black enclave.

Red/Black operations solution

In this configuration, VoyagerERm black-core router provides connectivity over SATCOM with commercial Wi-Fi and cellular. The Red/Black solution contains a sled to power a HAIPE encryption device. It supports KG-250X, KIV-54 or KG-175D (mounted separately) . A VoyagerESm on the red side includes VIK functionality.
