[SatNews] OmniAccess S.L. has launched a 100Mbps dedicated VSAT service.

The upgraded Broadbeam Ultra variant is based on iDirect's next-generation X7 modem platform and XipLink’s WAN optimisation appliance and is the latest addition to its high throughput Broadbeam VSAT service plans. By leveraging the maximum efficiency of the X7 and Xiplink combo, OmniAccess is able to offer an unparalleled 100Mbps single-link VSAT service to customers across the Caribbean and Mediterranean.

The service has been designed and engineered to meet the high throughput requirements of demanding users who are increasingly using bandwidth-hungry applications and IPTV streaming solutions, such as the upcoming High Definition Plexus TV services.

Earlier this year, OmniAccess was appointed as a launching customer for iDirect's next-generation platform and is now deploying the X7 satellite modems on-board its vessels and upgrading its ground infrastructure to the new Evolution iDX 3.2 software. With the X7's built-in support for high-speed and high-efficiency applications, customers can upgrade to OmniAccess' latest service offering without the need to change the existing iDirect VSAT platform.

Unlike other TDMA service standards that peak at 15 Mbps, the BroadBEAM Ultra 100 is capable of exceeding these limitations while still using the prevailing TDMA iDirect architecture. This platform consistency allows OmniAccess to provide flexibility, scalability and competitive fees across its entire fleet.
