Kratos OpenSpace Platform Now Enables Carrier Ethernet-over-Satellite

Virtual, Orchestrated Environment Supports Deployment of Point-to-Point Services through Standards-based Integration Across Satellite Ground Systems and Global Communications Networks

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc., a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced that its OpenSpace™ Platform now supports integrated delivery of E-Line services using Carrier Ethernet-over-Satellite.

Kratos’ OpenSpace Platform is the first and only completely virtual satellite ground system based upon an open, standards-based Software-Defined Networking (SDN) architecture that enables satellite operators and global communications networks to interoperate seamlessly. Introduced last year with support for Earth Observation and Remote Sensing missions, the OpenSpace Platform now adds support for E-Line Carrier Ethernet Services through its SCPC Service Chain, enabling operators to expand their offerings to include use cases where a two-way satellite segment is beneficial, such as service delivery to remote locations underserved by terrestrial or cellular technologies.

E-Line is a widely used networking service enabled by MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet (CE) standards. MEF is a global industry association of network, cloud, and technology providers who drive network transformation to power the digital economy. With CE, operators can deliver scalable, reliable, carrier-class services. For example, a company with headquarters in New York can connect its corporate WAN via E-Line over satellite to rural branch offices as if they were in one network. This unified network can also be seamlessly connected to other CE-based networks across the globe.

With OpenSpace, an end-to-end E-Line service can be instantiated in minutes. Software modems at the gateway and remote sites communicate over a fully digital ground infrastructure. Signal processing runs in software on generic, off-the-shelf computers without the need for additional hardware acceleration such as Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGAs) or Graphics Processing Units (GPU). Employing MEF’s Lifecycle Service Orchestration (LSO) reference architecture and framework enables end-to-end automation and orchestration of the tasks to deliver a service. Operational planning and business systems can be integrated, and E-Line services can be activated and de-activated in tandem with satellite operations to support changes in supply and demand on the fly. OpenSpace provides customers with accelerated service delivery and a feature-rich solution that includes built-in, unified network management that simplifies service implementation, monitoring and assurance.

“The space layer is evolving rapidly with advancements such as software-defined payloads and mega- constellations, which are opening up new opportunities for satellites to enhance telecommunication services for enterprise network extensions and cellular backhaul which directly benefit from satellite’s advantages of remote reach and coverage,” commented Christopher Boyd, Senior Director of Product Management at Kratos. “This seamless digital internetworking with global carriers is enabled as the satellite industry moves beyond siloed and proprietary technology and embraces industry standards such as MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet used extensively by the world’s largest telecommunication and technology providers.”
