Is a protocol that enables the modem to talk to an antenna control unit in this case the terminal-embedded system. OpenAMIP requests the remote geolocation from the terminal. Using that information, the modem decides from a beam map (a predefined set of satellite beams with the frequency information associated with different geolocations) which satellite and with what frequency settings to try to connect to a HUB. The position of the satellite, as well as frequency and LO settings, is sent to the pointing system and the LNB and BUC in the terminal. The terminal must then only be accurately pointed to be able to start transmission in a new location. Therefore, using OpenAMIP reduces the number of settings the remote terminal end-user must configure considerably and allows for much simpler terminal use.
To utilize OpenAMIP on a Satcube Terminal, the following information should be configured to the modem to allow for the necessary information exchange.
- • IP address should be set to the terminal IP address: 192.168.222.219.
- • Connecting on port 5005.
- • An OpenAMIP license must be loaded onto the terminal. This license file is preloaded for terminals equipped with an IQ200 modem or a Newtec MDM2510 modem. For UHP terminals this can be acquired through Satcube support.
For detailed instructions on how to configure OpenAMIP for different modems please refer to the modem manufacturer’s manuals.
