Teleport Services International Offers Managed Network Services To iDirect VSAT Network Operators


6.15.2005 


HERNDON, Va. -- June 15, 2005 - iDirect Technologies, a privately held company that designs, develops, and markets the fastest, most reliable bi-directional satellite-based broadband access solutions, today announced Teleport Services International (TSI) has launched its iNOC Managed Network Service for satellite Network Operators (NO's) and Virtual Network Operators (VNO's) that use iDirect's advanced VSAT network systems. TSI's 24/7 Internet Network Operations Center (iNOC) interconnects to a NO's iDirect VSAT Hub via redundant VPN links, to provide reliable, real-time, network management, performance measurement, diagnostics and end user "help desk" functions.

Stuart Browne, TSI's CEO said "By outsourcing their VSAT network management operations to TSI, iDirect NO's and VNO's can reduce their start-up costs and operational expenses without sacrificing reliability, network management capability or end user support. TSI offers full-time, second and third shift NOC ops and back-up disaster recovery service to iDirect NO's and VNO's that operate their own networks".

iDirect's VSAT network solutions are being adopted worldwide with over 150 VSAT Hubs currently deployed. The iDirect Virtual Network Operator solution enables Network Operators to "partition" the network capacity of an iDirect Hub to multiple Virtual Network Operators. This allows the individual VNO's to initiate satellite internet network services without assuming the risk, or the upfront investment of deploying a separate network. "TSI's iNOC Managed Network Service gives VNO's another tool to quickly deploy services without investing in a NOC or having to hire technical support staff" said Browne.
