iDirect Technologies (iDirect), a division of Vision Technologies Systems Inc., announced today that Globecomm Systems Inc. will deploy an iDirect platform to support their customer in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) markets.

The initial deployment will include an iDirect 5IF hub allowing Globecomm Systems to launch multiple shared networks throughout the EMEA region - supporting thousands of remote sites. iDirect designs, develops and markets the fastest, most reliable bi-directional satellite-based broadband IP solutions. This partnership with iDirect will help Globecomm Systems meet the demand for broadband IP access, as well as the growing market for other IP centric applications traditionally supported by terrestrial networks.

"We are very pleased to be working with a partner like GSI, particularly in the EMEA region where they are experiencing some of the fastest growth in Broadband IP over satellite service. The iDirect platform is an ideal solution for voice, video, Internet, or any broadband application where last mile connectivity can't be fully met with traditional landline connections. Working with a partner like GSI who can provide a single, source for engineering, systems and services greatly simplifies the deployment of these services to customers, and delivers an all around better customer experience."
