VT iDirect, Inc. say that RigNet, Inc. has deployed an iDirect Series 5IF Universal Satellite Hub in Guaratiba, Brazil, which will enable RigNet to accelerate its penetration of the region's growing oil and gas and energy maritime markets.

Based on the network expansion, RigNet will offer a managed service for energy, deep-water maritime and remote applications such as VoIP, Internet, video-conferencing and video services. The network delivers Ku-band bandwidth over iDirect's Evolution iDX 3.1 software and X5 remote. (iDirect is a leader in satellite-based IP communications technology).

This deployment follows RigNet's recent expansion of iDirect services into the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. The goal of these deployments is to provide regional TDMA services for the energy maritime sector, and build seamless Ku-band services on a global scale.

"Expanding our coverage to the Latin America market is a strategic move as the region continues to grow and demand greater satellite connectivity.  Our continued investment in the iDirect platform enables RigNet to offer managed services to both onshore and offshore energy maritime, oil and gas, and other markets, connecting remote and central locations to improve operational efficiencies," said Mauricio Rubinsztajn Manager – Brazil, RigNet.
