iDirect + Nawras—Service Extension is Evolutionary (SATCOM)

[SatNews] VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of Vision Technologies Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), has announced that Nawras, which provides both fixed and mobile telecommunications services in the Sultanate of Oman, will upgrade to iDirect Evolution.

The platform upgrade will play a key role helping Nawras deliver new VSAT services, such as enterprise connectivity, SCADA and mobility. Among the emerging markets that stand to benefit most from this extension of services offered by Nawras is the oil and gas market. A major industry in the Sultanate of Oman, oil and gas typically operates across remote locations throughout the country. This calls for the need for reliable communications between remote locations, which Nawras will now be able to deliver. In addition, Evolution will help Nawras, part of Ooredoo Group, enhance its fast-growing cellular backhaul business. This will allow for higher network efficiency, lowering bandwidth utilization and cost.
