[SatNews] VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect) has announced that Telefonica Grandes Empresas in Peru (Telefonica del Peru), a business unit of the Telefonica Group, has upgraded to iDirect Evolution®, running the latest iDX 3.2 software.

ESSALUD’s criteria for a network provider included being able to achieve a high rate of availability while doubling the IP data rate for delivering services. iDirect Evolution 3.2 offers high data rates, and with ATDMA, it maximizes bandwidth efficiency, allowing the network to react accordingly in times of peak traffic. Evolution has helped Telefonica Peru deliver ESSALUD global spectral efficiency of 1.8bps/Hz and 99.8 percent availability to 151 sites. Going forward, Telefonica del Peru anticipates Evolution will help it serve the upcoming national elections in the region, as well as expand existing services and pursue new opportunities associated with government and enterprise customers around Peru.
