KIV-7M PDF Print E-mail

Operating at speeds up to 52Mbps, the KIV-7M is the first encrypter to attain the NSA's new guidelines under the Crypto Modernisation Initiative. For high speed operationg the KIV-7M has an LVDS / EIA644 interface, which is not commonly found on Telecoms or Datacomms equipment unless of course you come to Metrodata.

LVDS is not a new interface to Metrodata, as long before the KIV-7M came out we were already supporting LVDS on our LV1000 Ethernet over Serial Extender (now replaced by the LV2000 Ethernet over Serial Extender) offering Ethernet service delivery applications over LVDS satellite modems.

With the increase in speed of the KIV-7M over the older KIV-7HSA, its important that you do not create a bottleneck within your network by interfacing to slower serial interfaces. Metrodata allow you to get the maximum benefit from your KIV-7M as we have developed our LVDS products to operate at the maximum data rate of 52Mbps of the KIV-7M and the high speed LVDS modems such as the Paradise P3000.

Example KIV-7M LVDS / EIA644 interfacing applications:

We are also developing other EIA644/LVDS products that may help you interface your infrastructure to the KIV-7M or other LVDS encrypters, so please contact us if you need to interface EIA644/LVDS products with fiber, EIA530, or leased line services such as E3, DS-3 or OC-3.

CONNECTING THE KIV-7M ON ITS RED SIDE TO IP ROUTERS / SWITCHES

The LV2000 enables the connection of an Ethernet Interface on a router or switch to an LVDS/EIA644 encrypter such as the KIV-7M, supporting data rates of up to 52Mbps including asymmetric data rates (e.g. 26Mbps in one direction and 42Mbps in the other direction). The LV2000 also supports an Automatic Crypto Resync function whereby the data is constantly monitored for loss of synchronisation (e.g. as occurs when moving between satellite footprints) and when this loss of synchronisation occurs the encrypters are automatically told to resynchronise.

CONNECTING THE KIV-7M ON ITS RED SIDE TO A HSSI ROUTER

The BC1100 connects a HSSI router interface to the LVDS/EIA644 interface on the Red Side of a KIV-7M encrypter, supporting data rates of up to 52Mbps including asymmetric data rates (e.g. 26Mbps in one direction and 42Mbps in the other direction). The BC1100 supports Crypto Resync by buffering and level shifting the router Crypto Resync signals.

CONNECTING THE KIV-7M ON ITS BLACK SIDE TO A HSSI RADIO OR SATCOM MODEM

With the Metrodata BC1000 it is possible to connect the LVDS/EIA644 Interface on the Black Side of the KIV-7M Crypto, to a HSSI Interface on a Radio Relay System or Satcom Modem. The BC1000 can only be used on the Black Side, and supports a maximum bitrate of 52Mbps.
