iDirect Achieves 100 Mbps With Evolution X7 Remote

Press Release
Thursday, October 18, 2012

Next-generation remote powers high-bandwidth applications, unleashes the performance of high throughput satellites.


 
VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of VT Systems Inc. (VT Systems), has announced key performance statistics for the Evolution X7 remote, the first in a family of next-generation remotes that have been optimized to deliver best-in-class Adaptive TDMA throughput performance and operate with high throughput satellites. Built on an entirely new multi-core hardware system, the X7 can reach up to 100 Mbps of combined inbound and outbound throughput, with more than 20 Mbps on the return channel alone. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.


 
The Evolution X7 leverages dual DVB-S2 demodulators with fully independent RF chains. This makes it uniquely suited to support a robust suite of enterprise voice and data services while simultaneously receiving up to 12 shared, high-definition multicast channels over the same or a second transponder or satellite. The X7 also features an embedded 8-port switch, which provides unrivaled flexibility for physically segregating multiple end user traffic groups based on VLAN tags when coupled with the iDirect platform’s best-in-class GQoS and NMS. Additionally, the new remote comes with multiple embedded PSU configurations to power higher wattage BUCs.


 
The X7 enables service providers to deliver high-bandwidth data rates while utilizing the iDirect Intelligent Platform’s Adaptive TDMA shared return. For example, service providers in the maritime, cruise, oil & gas, and mining markets can efficiently deliver basic voice and data traffic, while also managing bandwidth-heavy business applications and multicast services like IP TV. Further, cellular backhaul providers can meet the throughput requirements for demanding, large cell sites as mobile operators expand 3G and 4G networks in remote areas.


 
"With the X7 iDirect has achieved a breakthrough in packets-per-second performance. Our partners can now deliver data speeds on a TDMA platform that until now have only been possible on an SCPC dedicated link. This is just the first step in our ambitious plan to equip our partners to meet escalating customer demands for satellite bandwidth, while capturing the market opportunities that high throughput satellites will bring."~ Dave Bettinger, Chief Technology Officer, iDirect


 
"The X7 is a critical development that positions the iDirect platform as a go-to solution for high bandwidth applications. With the next-generation design of the X7, iDirect has once again lived up to its reputation as an innovator in the satellite industry at a time when demand for high-throughput service is exploding and satellite is poised to become a mainstream connectivity solution." ~ Simon Bull, Senior Consultant, COMSYS
 


The X7 will be supported through iDX 3.2 software and will be available in Q1, 2013.
