iDirect Supports Large-Scale Narrowband Networks
The company has launched iDX 3.1, which allows satellite service providers and operators to pursue opportunities in a key segment of the satellite market.
iDX 3.1 was unveiled at the SATELLITE 2012 conference and exhibition, which ran March 12-15, 2012 in Washington, D.C.
This cost-effective remote bundle is optimized for large networks with small inbound channels.
iDirect’s iDX 3.1 includes a range of features such as the new Evolution X1 remote bundle, which combines a low power, compact remote with a highly efficient BUC and LNB.
iDX 3.1 also includes an outdoor version of the Evolution X1 remote, a new 16-channel licensing option for the Evolution XLC-M line card, and group QoS enhancements.
VT iDirect adds that iDirect's Group Quality of Service bandwidth allocation algorithm has been optimized for large-scale narrowband networks with iDX 3.1.
Sold as a scalable satellite solution for the utility market, the iDX 3.1 upgrade also supports other key applications including distance education, pipeline monitoring, business continuity, and point-of-sale.
"iDX 3.1 enables organizations to scale iDirect networks to a significantly greater number of sites, reach new levels of bandwidth efficiency, and expand field applications,” said Greg QUIGGLE vice president of Product Management, iDirect.
“It’s a very timely release as satellite communications continues its transformation into a mainstream networking solution."
VT iDirect was recently in news for announcing that a new VSAT service based on the iDirect Evolution Platform will been launched by YahService, the end-to-end managed satellite solutions division of Al Yah Satellite Communications Company PrJSC (Yahsat).
