iDirect Series

While iDirect's iNFINITI®-based networks have proven themselves as the most reliable and efficient MF-TDMA satellite-based TCP/IP systems available, the dramatic improvements in bandwidth efficiency and service quality provided by DVB-S2 with ACM and 2D 16-State coding has created a compelling case for existing iNFINITI-based iDirect Government Technologies (iGT) customers to migrate to an Evolution-based DVB-S2/2D 16-State architecture.

iDirect Evolution

iDirect's Evolution product line is built on the DVB-S2 standard with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM). The new product suite comprises iDirect's Evolution routers, line cards and iDX software.

Service providers can leverage this product line to build next-generation satellite networks that significantly improve bandwidth efficiency and lower operating costs.

iDirect iNFINITI

The iDirect iNFINITI series enables network operators to support SCPC, Mesh and Star networks to multiple satellites all from a single hub chassis. The hub solutions built from the iDirect iNFINITI series platform will allow for scalability to multiple thousands of remote sites.
