Herndon, VA., February 6 2006 - iDirect Technologies (iDirect), a division of Vision Technologies Systems Inc., announced today the launch of their mesh solution for the iDirect platform. The iDirect Mesh product will allow a single hop connection between remote modems to support any real time application such as voice or video. iDirect designs, develops, and markets the fastest, most reliable bi-directional satellite-based broadband IP solutions.

"The Mesh solution is a great addition to our product portfolio. iDirect has always been a recognized leader in supporting VOIP and other real time applications over satellite. The addition of mesh provides our customers with greater flexibility to support their end users at all their locations. And, because it can be integrated into existing iDirect hub chassis, service providers can deploy mesh networks alongside star or SCPC topologies, all from the same platform." John Kealey President and CEO iDirect Technologies

The modular design and inherent flexibility in the iDirect platform enable a single iDirect hub chassis to support multiple networks with various requirements for satellite band, topologies or bandwidth.
