ITC purchased an iDirect Universal 15000 Series satellite hub, which is integrated with iDirect’s latest software, iDX 3.0, to support growth in the banking sector and other verticals. iDirect is the world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.
By integrating MPLS with VSAT, ITC enables its enterprise customers to manage remote extensions of their corporate network to rural areas on one MPLS network. For the banking sector, that means connecting remote branches and ATMs to corporate headquarters more efficiently, lowering operating costs and increasing productivity.
Evolution offers ITC a highly flexible platform that can support current customer demands while also scaling to meet the company’s strategic growth plans. In choosing iDirect, ITC specifically focused on iDirect’s Group Quality of Service (GQoS) feature, which provides a better end-customer experience by enabling sophisticated bandwidth allocation and prioritization. The SCPC Return capability of iDX 3.0 was also an important feature for ITC. With the ability to switch their customers from TDMA to SCPC based on their dynamic bandwidth requirements, ITC can offer more flexible VSAT services to customer segments that require both the efficiency of TDMA and the dedicated bandwidth of a fixed SCPC link.
With its investment in an iDirect Evolution network, ITC has enhanced its services and is positioned to expand its customer portfolio and enter new markets, including the oil & gas, utilities, and government sectors.
Amer Mowafi, Chief Commercial Officer, ITC, said, “At ITC, we rely on the best technology to meet our customers’ diverse communications needs. That’s why we chose to partner with iDirect. Our investment in the Evolution platform enables us to deliver more efficient VSAT services to our existing customers in the enterprise sector, and also offers the flexibility to support our expansion into new growth markets.”
Majdi Atout, Regional Vice President of Sales – Africa and Middle East, iDirect, said, “We are pleased that ITC chose iDirect technology to strengthen its VSAT services during this period of rapid growth. The capabilities of the Evolution platform align perfectly with ITC’s strategic goals, and will help the company further differentiate itself as a technological leader in the Saudi telecom market.”
