Designed for demanding environments, the Connect180 offers a variety of features to achieve the required accuracy needed for the best possible GX performance, including the One Touch Commissioning function to enable simple RF-chain setup. Paradigm offers the Connect180 as a standard terminal, with relevant accessories. Installation manuals and a quick start guide are also supplied on CDROM. For ease of setup, a tool kit with compass is provided.

Supplied with either a Kingpost, Non-Penetrating Roof Mount or Paradigm ISO Container Mount, the antenna system can be deployed/installed in any location.

Terminal M&C and modem operations are performed by the Indoor Paradigm Interface Module (PIM), which can optionally be supplied as a Rack Mount unit. For scenarios where the modem is required to operate outside, Paradigm offers an Outdoor PIM option.

To increase flexibility and adaptability, Paradigm offers alternative interface options to the standard 10/100BaseT, including fibre and wireless solutions. Cable options to suit specific installation environments can also be offered.
