iDirect Unveils Software Upgrade for Evolution Platform
VT iDirect has released iDX 2.1, the latest software upgrade to its Evolution platform. iDirect’s Evolution line is based on the DVB-S2 transmission standard with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM). iDX 2.1 aims to increase DVB-S2/ACM efficiency gains through faster data processing speeds, while introducing network scalability improvements and new functionality to iDirect’s group quality of service technology. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.
With the release of iDX 2.0, iDirect has integrated 2D 16-State FEC coding technology into its overall platform to give customers an increase of up to 20 percent in their inbound IP throughput without sacrificing link performance.
“To date, iDirect partners have launched more than 200 Evolution networks. In addition, the world’s top five satellite operators and major telecom carriers have now deployed or are migrating to Evolution,” iDirect said in a company statement.
