Now you can support all your customers’ bandwidth needs regardless of their location, topology, requirements or application. iDirect provides the most cost-effective and reliable broadband business-class IP solution over satellite. We integrate IP routing capability and application prioritization optimized for satellite transmission, with business-class reliability and performance. The unique iDirect technology allows you to:
In addition, iDirect offers unique capabilities that provide more revenue opportunities through highly efficient bandwidth usage, greater flexibility, and enhanced reliability and performance.
Capacity Optimization - By using a native IP solution, you’ll save 10-50% capacity versus an inefficient DVB MPEG Encapsulation scheme. The extremely rapid bandwidth on demand system ensures the highest efficiency of capacity utilization. MF-TDMA, D-TDMA is 98% payload efficient. In addition, with 1.2 Carrier Spacing we deliver 14% savings in bandwidth through more efficient use of your transponder capacity.
Scalability - Increase bandwidth as needed on-the-fly: upstream from 64 Kbps to 4.2 Mbps; downstream from 128 Kbps to 9 Mbps. You can also configure carriers in 1 bps increments, and add new remotes easily–without increasing satellite capacity.
Increased Bandwidth Efficiency - Support more applications and carry more traffic over your available bandwidth. Our Deterministic TDMA network architecture (D-TDMA) algorithm allocates bandwidth among multiple remote sites, based on criteria such as the queued depth at each remote site, the CIR (Committed Information Rate) configuration, Quality of Service (QoS) and prioritization requirements.
Centralized Network Management - iDirect’s Network Management System (NMS) provides all essential monitoring and control operations from a centrally located network operations center. The system can scale to monitor multiple hubs and thousands of remote sites from a single NMS.
Improved Network Efficiency - The iDirect NMS provides network operators with an unmatched tool to increase network efficiency, support individual site requirements, and maximize network reliability. From one easy to use GUI script, network operators can:
