Flexible, Efficient Core Architecture: iDirect hub can connect to any frequency band on all satellite architectures. Evolution is built on DVB-S2/ACM with Adaptive TDMA and multiple efficiency technologies to allocate bandwidth efficiently over distributed networks, while automatically adjusting to dynamic traffic demands and changing network conditions.

Modular Design for Scalability: The modular hub and line card system enables operators and service providers to minimize initial capital costs, offer multiple service types from a central hub, and scale business one network at a time in a “pay as you grow” manner. It also allows Service Providers to operate across all business models, including VNO, HNO and managed service models and easily add new capabilities with over-the-air software upgrades.

Integration with Terrestrial Networks: Evolution mirrors the quality and reliability of terrestrial services, ensuring an enterprise-class user experience, and can operate seamlessly as part of an integrated global IP network. iDirect’s Layer 2 over Satellite (L2oS) feature will enable a satellite network to behave more like a mainstream access network.

Advanced Quality of Service and Reliability: iDirect’s QoS technologies allow operators and service providers to create application-level Service Level Agreements within a customer’s network and offer multi-tiered services. Evolution’s hub diversity and redundancy and seamless network failover protects overall network integrity and delivers carrier class reliability.

Data Security : Evolution supports Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for commercial applications, as well as advanced military security standards, such as TRANSEC, FIPS and STANAG.

Mobility Capabilities : Industry-leading mobility functionality lets operators and service providers capitalize on emerging maritime, government and defense, and aviation markets. This includes Automatic Beam Selection (ABS) technology, which enables the operation of global connectivity with no manual intervention across multiple satellite footprints. Spread Spectrum waveform technology supports very small antennas on aircraft, maritime and land-based vehicles. There are also high-speed COTM features such as fast beam-switching, Doppler compensation and fast reacquisition after blockage. Remotes are optimized around Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) and ruggedized gear and router boards can be integrated into aeronautical, portable and other specialized mobility systems.

Operational Efficiency: The NMS enables operators and service providers to run their entire business operations more efficiently and profitably. With the NMS, they can streamline their operations to maximize productivity and lower costs and risks. They can also operate at peak efficiency, bringing everything within their view and under their control to make responsive, strategic decisions. Business can expand effortlessly, managing large-scale global networks with world-class service and operational support. Operators and service providers can also integrate third party systems and develop customized NOC features to continually refine internal tasks and processes. Customers can be provided with unrivalled visibility and responsiveness that will differentiate customer service, deepen loyalty and add revenue opportunities.

Investment Protection : We continually strive to extend the value of the Evolution product line. Software enhancements continually fuel the product line, delivering innovations ranging from remote performance gains and faster processing speeds to expanded functionality throughout the platform. With the Evolution, customers can invest in an innovative technology mindset aligned with a long-term business strategy.
