IGT's iDX 3.2.3 Software for Increased Bandwidth & Higher Throughputs

 iDirect Government Technologies, Inc. (iGT), a wholly owned subsidiary of VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), today announced the availability of iDX 3.2.3 software, which meets the  military, intelligence and public safety communities growing needs for increased bandwidth and higher throughputs.

iDX 3.2.3 features Adaptive Time Division Multiple Access (ATDMA), which improves return channel performance and increases network availability under rain fade and satellite link degradation. The software enables customers to design networks for a typical case scenario instead of worse-case scenario, saving time, costs and complexity without loss of performance.

With ATDMA, customers can boost their network throughput, increase network availability and reduce bandwidth and terminal costs or combine these benefits to support high-speed Communications on the Move (COTM) in a maritime, terrestrial or airborne environment.

iDX 3.2.3 has been submitted for Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2-compliant remotes and line cards. Each multi-channel demod line card is capable of supporting as many as 8 inbound channels with TRANSEC, and meets Wideband Global Satcom requirements.

Additional features include:

Waveform enhancements provide 5 percent to 15 percent bandwidth efficiency improvements (as much as 40 percent for binary phase shift key, or BPSK)

“Superburst” enables as much as five times faster remote acquisition Improved DVB-S2 carrier roll-off for as much as 13 percent in outbound bandwidth savings Mission-critical applications connectivity and security Specialized demodulators support High-speed COTM
 

“iGT’s latest software release incorporates new features that greatly increase the availability and reliability of satellite communications  in harsh and remote environments where military, intelligence and public safety agencies rely on consistent connections,” said Karl Fuchs, iGT Vice President of Technology. “By maximizing availability and bandwidth savings with ATDMA on both the inbound and outbound carriers, agencies are better able to use airborne and COTM to meet their satcom connectivity needs whether for voice, video or data communications in the air, on the ground, or at sea.”
