The IPGW is a high-performance IP processing server within the HX satellite system featuring a very compact design and the capability to process IP packets forwarded/ received over the space link for enterprise networks, using Hughes proprietary software. Designed to operate in the Hughes HX System, the IPGW is housed in a standalone server occupying one Rack Unit (RU). The IPGW interfaces with other components, such as satellite gateway and DNCC in order to forward and receive the user traffic. The IPGW is responsible for traffic optimization functions, such as TCP acceleration, payload and header compression. Each IPGW can process capacity in excess of 40 Mbps of user traffic.
