Agile Asymmetric Routing
A hybrid internet-over-satellite service uses different transmission paths for incoming and outgoing data. The agile Mimir Gateway provides operators with smooth reception of requests on one network interface while outgoing transmission is performed on another network interface
Mimir supports multi-transponder environments with automatic load balancing between transponders, based on geographic properties of end users.
Agile User Management
The integrated Mimir NMS feature includes simple user provisioning, allowing the system administrator to easily configure and manage users, terminals, and different types of accounts and services. Mimir supports third-party provisioning and billing systems with easy integration through a provisioning API
The flexible Mimir design supports different types of link aggregation. Example: Combining bandwidth of two mobile connections for improved uplink performance.
Forsway recommends deploying the Mimir server at the uplink site. While the Mimir server is most commonly pre-installed to simplify deployment, the Odin router can be factory configured based on an operator’s needs.
On-Demand Satellite Bonding
Mimir seamlessly bonds medium bandwidth return channels with a satellite service. To optimize service and reduce latency, when bandwidth usage is low, all traffic will travel over the return channel.
When a return channel cannot support increased bandwidth demands, satellite service is automatically activated and bonded with the return link.
End-users are provided with combined bandwidth of the satellite link and return channel, boosting previously unreliable or slow connections.
Robust latency-sensitive protocols are prioritized for the low-latency return channel.
