Square Upgrades to iDirect Platform

VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of VT Systems Inc (VT Systems) today announced that SQUARE InformatiX Ltd, the largest satellite service provider in Bangladesh, has purchased an iDirect Series 15000 Universal Satellite Hub to upgrade its existing satellite broadband service. The next-generation iDirect Evolution network will enable the company to support Bangladesh’s growing enterprise market with advanced applications for banks and other corporate customers. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.

Based on the DVB-S2 standard with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), the iDirect platform will replace SQUARE’s existing satellite system to maximize bandwidth capacity with next-generation performance. With an Evolution network in place, SQUARE plans to migrate its existing customer base of financial institutions and other organizations to an enhanced iDirect network that will deliver data throughput improvements of up to 60 percent over existing services.

SQUARE will leverage the extra satellite capacity to expand its service and support new business applications to meet the growing demand for broadband connectivity across the Bangladeshi enterprise market. These applications include online banking, ATM, Point-of-Sale and e-Commerce. Additionally, with bandwidth savings from iDirect’s platform, SQUARE plans to support an emerging telemedicine service that will deliver remote access to medical consultation in rural areas where quality healthcare service has not yet reached.

iDirect’s Evolution product line supports a wide range of carrier IP data rates, FEC codes and modulation types, including up to 16APSK on outbound and up to 8PSK on the inbound. Evolution includes the advanced features of the iDirect Intelligent Platform™, to help operators amplify the gains of DVB-S2, enabling satellite networks to meet demanding service level agreements and reach data speeds of up to 156 Megabits per second.
