ICCES expands VSAT coverage in Africa, Middle East with iDirect evolution platform

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, February 10 - 2011 @ 10:29

With the expanded coverage, ICCES will support government, private enterprise and home users in these regions. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.

By adding Evolution to its existing iNFINITI-based iDirect infrastructure, ICCES can maximize the efficiency of its space segment and expand its satellite coverage to support new customers. The company is seeing increased demand for VSAT connectivity in developing areas for a variety of needs ranging from core communications to more advanced enterprise applications. These include basic Internet access, Virtual Private Network (VPN) connectivity between branches of large corporations and Voice-over-IP (VoIP). By increasing its C-band satellite capacity over Libya, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, ICCES plans to target resellers, enterprises, governments and home users.

Based on the next-generation DVB-S2 standard with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), Evolution enables ICCES to scale capacity affordably to grow its customer base, while continuing to provide a highly reliable service that customers require. ICCES can intuitively and efficiently allocate bandwidth by customer and even by application type using iDirect’s built-in Group Quality of Service (GQoS) technology. The provider can also protect customer links from degrading during adverse weather thanks to ACM, which automatically adjusts signal strength to avoid rain fade.

“Over the years we’ve dealt with many satellite platforms and ultimately found iDirect’s to be the most efficient, flexible and scalable. iDirect has been our trusted VSAT partner since 1995, providing the technology, management tools and support that enables ICCES to deliver a successful service to customers and continue to grow our business,” Mohamed Nafjan, CEO, ICCES.

“ICCES has migrated to our next-generation Evolution platform, joining a majority of our customers who have deployed over 300 Evolution networks to date. With more advanced capabilities to ensure high reliability, ICCES can confidently expand its services, knowing it has a platform that can meet customers’ increasing bandwidth needs,” Majdi Atout, Director of Sales – Middle East, iDirect.
