SkyWAN® Release 7.2


In the scope of the project SkyWAN® Release 7.2 several new features are provided: extended site redundancy options, added comfort for site installations, Chinese User Interface for SkyNMS, and integration with the SWE-DISH CCT portable user terminal.


See Features above.


The major benefits of the new SkyWAN® Release 7.2 features are:

  • Further simplification of line-up,
  • Extended redundancy options for operation critical applications. In addition to the SkyWAN® IDUs in the active paths, now also IDUs in the inactive paths are manageable,
  • SkyNMS network management system for Chinese market
  • Cost saving of ODU and satellite capacity,
  • SkyWAN® networks can use the SWE-DISH CCT terminal. From now on, SWE-DISH terminals are available for SkyWAN networks.


The key features and key issues of the project are:

Robust and Easy Line-up
