"Core Node" is most likely a revamped SMTS-1200, which in earlier days, was located at earth station, iirc.

So now, it appears, a direct pipe is used from earth dish to a server farm (data center), where it hooks to a modified SMTS-1200, so marketing department gave it a new name.

Previously called Accelenet servers:

Dallas, Denver, Fort Worth, Salt Lake City, and Seattle in 2012

My gateway RNO (Lovelock, NV) and I always went through SLC - suspect I still do (probably why hoem depot always wants me to go to SLC for pickup unitl identify my store in VA) but they haven't called them Accelenet in several years now and the IP addresses that used to tell have been private address for a while.



The terminology has changed over the years:

@CO....Ya think?

Is this a no brainer? 

"On 10 January, it launched Exede, a new satellite broadband service that the Carlsbad, Calif., satellite communications company claims will be as good as or better than the average optical fiber connection on the ground."

“screamingly fast.”
=============================

"AcceleNet" boxes were powered via blades, and SMTS-1200 units were too.  Hence, most likely, Wildblue users had DAMA servers, and Exede users AcceleNet" servers...which were modified SMTS servers....aka Ver 1.0...Ver 2.0.

Yes, yes it is - Jim16 is handling the hardware discussion adn should be weighing in under the thread above with the potato modem. You started with a visualization, I expanded it to include the pieces you left out. None of it has to do with marketing, the average residential subscribers could care less, but having at least a knowledge of what's going on could help.

He who smelt it, dealt it.

@CO....potato modem

It was replaced with the Spock modem, which doubles as a space heater.
