iDirect Asia Pte Ltd today announced that LiveCom Limited (“LiveCom”), a Hong Kong based ISP, has selected Evolution as the platform to help enterprise and government customers expand their reach beyond the Asia-Pacific market. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.

LiveCom offers satellite based-services such as VoIP, videoconferencing, streaming media and data backup to customers across a broad array of markets including construction, energy, mining, IT consulting and government. Seeing an increasing need for customers to expand services beyond the Asian market, LiveCom knew it needed a satellite platform that would provide the immediacy for market expansion, along with the same level of quality and service. LiveCom will be using a mix of different iDirect remotes, each tailored to the market-specific demands of their customers across different verticals.

“We are seeing an influx of growth for the use of VSAT within the Asia-Pacific market, and many of these enterprises and government agencies are also focusing on expanding their services worldwide. Successful global expansion requires the same level of service quality and reliability you provide within your core markets anywhere in the world. iDirect’s Evolution platform can ensure such needs are met without limitations, both now and in the future.” said Tom CHEONG, Vice President, iDirect Asia.

“I am very pleased that iDirect's Evolution supports LiveCom’s strategic plan to help our customers rapidly expand and grow. My team is also satisfied with the excellent support that iDirect has provided including the technical support and training. The installation and configuration of iDirect Evolution was completed within a short timeframe and the easy deployment and simple maintenance has enabled LiveCom to reduce our OPEX.” ~ YANG Zhengrong, COO, LiveCom Limited.
