3DI Implements iDirect Skycelerator and Pumps Up Throughput to Military

iDirect Pumping up data throughput on the network by as much as 500 percent for critical military and government needs without increasing recurring monthly bandwidth costs is big news. iDirect Government Technologies (iGT), a wholly owned subsidiary of VT iDirect, Inc., announced that 3Di Technologies, a provider of VSAT systems and Enterprise Internet Telephony services, has implemented more than 20 iDirect SkyCelerator Network Accelerators on a secure U.S. Government Type 1 communications system in Southwest Asia. iGT is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology to military and government organizations.

Skcelerator 2 With troops in the region fully dependent on satellite for communications infrastructure, the SkyCelerators have boosted data throughput on the network by as much as 500 percent without increasing recurring monthly bandwidth costs. The installation improves network reliability, allowing personnel to send and receive classified data and utilize Secure Internet Protocol Routed Network (SIPRNet) voice communications concurrently with minimal latency. The new units were readily installed in the field without requiring a professional technician or compromising network performance. 

Skycelerator The SkyCelerator, which improves TCP performance, is fully compatible with the U.S. Government’s Space Communications Protocol Specification – Transport Protocol (SCPS-TP). Following the successful implementation, 3Di has incorporated the SkyCelerator into its core platform for VSAT communications to the Department of Defense, intelligence community and enterprise customers.
