IP Access International Utilizes iDirect Evolution Technology to Launch Isis Dual-Satellite Network
Dec 13, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
VT iDirect, Inc., a company of VT Systems, Inc., announced that IP Access International, a global satellite service provider, has deployed a new iDirect Series 15100 Universal Satellite hub to launch its Isis dual-satellite network.
According to a release, the new hub, located in Woodbine, Maryland, is linked with the company's existing iDirect hub in Napa, California, to provide critical redundancy for IP Access International's emergency management customers. iDirect is a provider of satellite-based IP communications technology.
Having access to a deployable satellite communications system is essential for emergency management professionals, first responders, and disaster relief organizations, the Company said. Through Isis, IP Access offers seamless connectivity between its west coast network, operating on Intelsat's Galaxy-18 satellite, and its east coast network, operating on SES' AMC-9 satellite. With both satellite networks online and operational, Isis gives customers the ability to switch between either network for look angle versatility or in the event of a disruption in service.
"With multiple satellite options and independent earth stations on both coasts, IP Access can better support our emergency management customers who need to keep their networks online at all times. Giving our customers the ability to switch between satellites quickly and easily in the event of a service disruption or to provide look angle diversity is an important differentiator for our business and it's all due to our investment in the iDirect Evolution Platform," said Alan Rich, President, IP Access International.
