Herndon, VA. 27 JUNE 2018 .  VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of Vision Technologies Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), announced that MEASAT Satellite Systems, a regional communications satellite operator based in Malaysia, has deployed the first VT iDirect DVB-S2X network in Malaysia, in a bid to bring scalable and affordable satellite broadband Internet services across the region. This state-of-the-art platform allows MEASAT to tap into new markets and take advantage of High Throughput Satellite opportunities in a cost-effective manner. Complementing existing terrestrial connectivity, the new service provides an additional communications option for Malaysians with limited or no access to broadband.

MEASAT chose to use iDirect’s Universal Hub with iQ Desktop remotes, as well as iDirect’s ULC-T line cards designed to support much higher symbol rates of up to 119 Msps via a software license upgrade. iDirect’s Universal Hub also supports higher internet protocol (IP) throughputs with higher modulation and codings (MODCODs), and iDirect’s ULC-R line cards which feature Adaptive time-divison multiple access, multi-channel support, and a path to higher symbol rates.

“With VT iDirect, MEASAT can rest assured they are getting the most innovative satellite solutions and support services,” said John Arnold, Vice President, Global Sales, VT iDirect. “Our company mission is to bring connectivity to diverse and challenging environments. I am happy we are helping MEASAT provide a solution for customers previously constrained by location and cost.”
