Meeting the needs of diverse
As the number of applications for
satellite IP communications grows, so does the
need for specialized services in market
segments. iDirect’s presence continues to expand
across a broad range of industries as we
leverage our expertise and advanced technology
to meet the varied needs of these customers.
Energy & Utilities
Energy and Utilities are making progress developing a
next-generation communications network capable of running their
smart grid, but many Utilities need to plan how to affordably
and reliably extend this communications network to the difficult
to reach locations of their service territory.
Satellite communications play a vital role within the maritime
industry and iDirect is a technology leader providing the
platform of choice for service providers connecting vessels at
sea. iDirect’s VSAT technology is the most broadly
deployed solution across the growing ranks of broadband-enabled
Oil & Gas
An iDirect network meets the demand of drilling companies in
some of the harshest conditions on earth. By providing reliable
voice, data and video access, iDirect supports real-time
information exchange between in-field operations and on-shore
experts. The result is faster, more accurate analysis on
drilling data that optimizes production and contains costs.
iDirect has developed the next-generation satellite IP router
technology to power in-flight broadband connectivity, overcoming
technical and operational challenges that grounded previous
solutions. Airlines that implement iDirect’s technology can
offer in-flight connectivity for a broad range of passenger and
An essential element for any military organization is the
ability to communicate, share information and provide support
for large mobile groups of personnel anytime, anyplace.
||iBusiness Continuity and
iDirect satellite networks keep businesses and organizations
running at high speeds when land lines are not an option or
terrestrial networks fail. iDirect’s technology provides the
reliable, secure, high-speed business continuity over satellite
for seamless connectivity that keeps organizations operating
more smoothly through any event.
High-speed Internet access can make all the difference in
emergency life and death situations where every second counts.
iDirect helps relief teams leverage satellite communications,
enabling immediate broadband connectivity to deliver lifesaving
services not dependent on terrestrial infrastructure.
When schools and universities are beyond the limits of
terrestrial broadband services, iDirect’s satellite connectivity
bridges the digital divide. Through two-way networks that enable
interactive video conferencing and chat, for instance,
organizations and institutions can expand any educational or
training program worldwide.
iDirect advanced technology provides enterprises with immediate
global reach, enabling the essential integration across
terrestrial and satellite networks and platforms. iDirect
technology is trusted to support critical IP applications across
the enterprise from VoIP, VPN and Internet access to streaming
media and data backup.
As the demand for wireless voice and data services increases so
does the challenge for mobile operators to cost effectively
expand their networks. Whether it is for network fill in or
expanding capabilities into remote and rural areas, satellite
technology plays a key role in backhauling voice and data
traffic and will continue to be a valuable solution for 2G, 3G
