SES Americom Selects iDirect to Support REDiSat Network


iDirect Technologies (iDirect), a subsidiary of Vision Technologies Systems Inc., and SES AMERICOM today announced that the iDirect iNFINITI satellite broadband hardware and platform has been selected to support SES AMERICOM’s REDiSat Network. The REDiSat Network is a satellite-delivered emergency communications solution designed to keep businesses up and running even when terrestrial network connections and phones are out.

REDiSat offers a low-cost, customized solution and a compelling alternative to terrestrial networks for both first responder, emergency response teams and any enterprise with critical communications needs. The solution enables businesses to secure network access in the event terrestrial lines go down. The proactive REDiSat Network delivers high-speed Internet connections in two levels of service along with flexible pricing programs.

Engineered specifically to meet the real world challenges of satellite service providers, the iDirect iNFINITI series of satellite Hub Routers offers advanced network functionality and scalability. The modular design and inherent flexibility in the iDirect platform enable a single iNFINITI series chassis to support multiple networks with various requirements for frequencies, topologies or bandwidth. This level of functionality ensures SES AMERICOM can meet a broad range of user requirements quickly and efficiently.

The iDirect iNFINITI platform delivers the flexibility and reliability that REDiSat customers demand in the face of a network outage or natural disaster,” said Jon Russo, senior vice president of marketing and product management for SES AMERICOM. “iDirect’s ability to support IP intensive applications, such as VoIP, data communications, and Internet access, plays a key role in the delivery of the innovative emergency communications solution to businesses across the country.”

“We are pleased to build on our long standing partnership with SES AMERICOM,” said John Kealey, president and CEO of iDirect Technologies. “The REDiSat solution is the next evolution in customer focused solutions that iDirect and SES AMERICOM have joined forces to deliver to businesses and organizations across the country. The iDirect platform is an ideal solution for voice, video, Internet, or any broadband application when connectivity through a terrestrial network is limited or non-existent. We look forward to working with SES AMERICOM on more forward thinking solutions.”
