iDirect Strengthens Presence In Canada

Company moves to new premises in Ottawa, bolstering resources to support local partners and capitalize on market growth


Herndon, Va. – VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of VT Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that it has moved its Canadian office to the nation’s capital, strengthening its commitment to the Canadian satellite communications market. The new Ottawa facility will serve as the head office for iDirect Canada and support a growing team of sales, operations, engineering and technical research, and development functions. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.

Satellite communications industry analysts project significant future growth in Canada as the country expands communications deep into its vast remote areas to spur natural resource development and strengthen rural societies and economies. With the iDirect platform already widely deployed in markets as varied as oil and gas, mining and government and defense, a more established presence positions the company to better serve local partners while developing products that address the growing national focus on connectivity and access.

“The expansion of our operations in Canada is a strategic and timely move. We’re bringing resources closer to our partners to meet greater demand for satellite communications and iDirect technology. Our team here is excited about the tremendous opportunities we can capture with our partners.”
