Evolution offers satellite service provider more reliable and efficient connectivity for emergency management, disaster recovery and other blue light applications
Herndon, Va., June 25, 2012 — Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited’s (ST Electronics) related US satellite communication company, VT iDirect (iDirect), today announced that IP Access International, a global satellite service provider, has upgraded its satellite-based Internet, video, and voice services with iDirect’s Evolution platform. Through its upgrade to Evolution, and the purchase of a Series 15100 Universal Satellite hub and line cards, IP Access International can significantly improve bandwidth efficiency, leading to a greater end-user experienceby increasing the overall capacity available for critical communications. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.
IP Access Internationaloffers high-bandwidth communications connectivity for a range of applications, including emergency management and disaster recovery, where dedicated and reliable bandwidth is a must. Through Evolution, IP Access International can provide emergency responders with a fixed or mobile satellite solution that can be deployed in minutes and deliver high-bandwidth connectivity as needed.
IP Access International utilises iDirect’s iDX 3.0 software to run its Evolution network. With built-in DVB-S2/ACM technology and advanced bandwidth management capabilities through its Group Quality of Service features, iDX 3.0 provides IP Access International with a highly efficient and reliable satellite solution. Additionally, because iDX 3.0 integrates both TDMA and SCPC connectivity on a single network, IP Access International can offer a more efficient and affordable service for customers who need SCPC connectivity by the day.This is extremely useful for IP Access International’s emergency response and disaster management customers since it allows them to turn on SCPC Return for temporary heavy-traffic conditions, such as in the aftermath of a disaster when they need to get communications back online quickly.
"For our customers, on-demand connectivityis critical. With Evolution, we have improved the efficiency of our services, enabling us to give end users the reliable bandwidth they need when they need it most. Evolution also gives us more flexibility in how we sell our services, particularly our dedicated SCPC solutions, which is an important service for our emergency management and disaster recovery customers."
President, IP Access International
"Disasters are unpredictable, which is why an instantly deployable solution like satellite is such an important technology to emergency responders. By upgrading toan Evolution network, IP Access International has brought major gains in performance, efficiency, and reliability to its service, ensuring that relief operations can happen without a hitch."
