iDirect Validates Dvb-S2 Evolution Platform Performance Using Telesat Satellite


Over-the-air demo at Satellite 2008 Conference and Exhibition to showcase platform capabilities

Herndon, Va., February 2008 - iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of VT Systems Inc (VT Systems) and a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology, announced today that it has successfully tested the commercial version of its DVB-S2 Evolution platform simulating a live customer environment. The series of tests validated the platformís feature set, stability and data throughput gains and were conducted over a Telesat satellite. iDirectís Evolution platform comprises a new line of DVB-S2 remotes and line cards as well as advanced operating and network management software.
During the tests, the platformís Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) feature successfully enabled iDirectís Evolution series remote to maintain optimum coding and modulation schemes, operating at 16-APSK during fair weather conditions and shifting to more robust modulation and coding schemes during a simulation of link fade conditions. iDirect also tested Voice over IP (VoIP), Web browsing, data transfer (FTP) and email applications to validate typical broadband applications and the successful interoperability of iDirectís Evolution platform features with the DVB-S2 system.
ďThis critical commercial test represents a major milestone as we prepare for the launch of iDirectís Evolution platform. We are eager to begin working with our partners to transition their satellite networks to the DVB-S2 standard this year.Ē
Chief Technology Officer, iDirect

The Evolution platform will be demonstrated at the iDirect booth 535 throughout the Satellite 2008 Conference and Exhibition. Users can trial the platformís VoIP, Web browsing and other capabilities.
