iDirect + IsoTropic Networks... Helping To Manage A Growing Net (SATCOM)

[SatNews] IsoTropic Networks, a solutions-based provider of satellite Internet services and an iDirect Host Network Operator (HNO), has upgraded...

...its global satellite network to the iDirect Evolution platform with iDX 3.1 software. Through this upgrade, IsoTropic can reduce its overall operating costs and grow its business.

IsoTropic upgraded to Evolution to enhance the efficiency, affordability, and scalability of its growing satellite network, which is critical to its continued success as an HNO offering Virtual Network Operator (VNO) services. IsoTropic owns and operates its own teleport and shared hub infrastructure, while providing its reseller partners the ability to maintain full control of their own networks and remotes.

Evolution enables IsoTropic to reduce its operating expenses by maximizing space segment efficiency through built-in DVB-S2 with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) technology. IsoTropic will further improve the efficiency and flexibility of its services through iDirect's iDX 3.1 operating software. As iDX 3.1 integrates TDMA and SCPC connectivity on a single network, IsoTropic can offer its end customers the ability to switch between TDMA and SCPC based on dynamic bandwidth requirements.
