RI10- DCE / IP-TO-SYNC CONTROLLER | synchronous serial data over Ethernet (TCP/IP)

RI10 IP-TO-SYNC Controller – 120 kbps

The RI10 IP-to-Sync Controllers are a pair of 19-inch rack-mountable hardware for transferring synchronous serial data over Ethernet (TCP/IP). By utilising the RI10, the transfer of encrypted bulk data over IP over extended distances for split-site systems are possible whilst leveraging on the already installed base of high-performance COMSEC devices.  Besides, transferring the data, the RI10 product also operates as a split-site controller for configuration, control and status.

The RI10 product breaks the continuous serial data stream into fixed-size packets, adds the IP framing and sends the data over a packet-switched Ethernet network, e.g., Defence LAN/WAN to a remote Tx or Rx Site. In the reverse direction, the IP Data received via the LAN is de-encapsulated and synchronously clocked into the data encryption equipment, e.g., NATO KIV-7M and KG-84 Encryptors.

The RI10 DCE variant is positioned between the COMSEC device and the Wide Area Network (WAN). On the radio equipment side, the RI10 DTE variant operates as a Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) device. If the RapidM RM10 HF wideband modem is used, the RI10 DTE variant is not required as the RM10 provides an embedded DATA LAN/WAN port.

The RI10 is suitable for installation on naval and maritime platforms as well as NATO shore stations requiring a split-site operation, e.g., BRASS/BRE1TA and BRIPES.

The RI10 is a member of the RapidM “Family 10” 19-inch rack-mount hardware products, including the RM10, RC10, RB10 and RS10 products, all sharing a common hardware platform enabling a long (20 year) product and spares availability period.
