A CONTINUUM OF INNOVATION
From the beginning, iDirect has taken a visionary role in VSAT, helping to shape the industry by breaking down long-standing barriers. In a landmark innovation, we developed an IP-based system that mirrored the quality and reliability of terrestrial communications
to deliver, for the first time in satellite history, enterprise-quality applications. This breakthrough helped transform satellite from a “technology of last resort” to a powerful, diverse solution able to handle core network applications and take broadband into the
heart of critical enterprise, military and public sector operations. We were first to bring business-quality IP applications to the TDMA VSAT market. Our native IP design, advanced IP routing and Quality of Service (QoS) technologies allow our Platform
to integrate seamlessly with terrestrial networks. This was a major game changer for service providers — they now had the technology to build and deliver high-quality service that could generate fresh demand for satellite connectivity. For sustained success, we knew that a higher degree of flexibility and scalability was essential. From the start, we have based our development approach on one universal set of requirements to enable service providers to meet any customer requirement, no matter the application, bandwidth, satellite, frequency, or topology. We ensured that our hub and line card system, remotes, and operating and management software all had the flexibility to handle the most diverse market needs for fixed or mobile communications. The result is the iDirect Intelligent Platform™, the industry’s gold standard in performance, efficiency, functionality and flexibility.
