2way2sat iDirect Broadband Services
2way2sat iDirect based services are targeted at professional users who need a highly performing satellite solution for the corporate network and Internet access needs.
iDirect enables highly efficient satellite communications based on TDM/TDMA technologies. Bandwidth efficiencies are both at the satellite communications and IP communications level.
Quality of Service (QoS), both at the hub station and at the remote site, provides bandwidth to mission-critical applications, thus allowing to size the network appropriately to the users needs. The 2way2sat services are designed to meet the actual requirements rather than "Throwing bandwidth at the problem". One application where the iDirect inherent QoS is particularly evident is Voice-over-IP (VoIP).
Dedicated and shared bandwidth allow different service classes, targeted at diverse user groups:
- 2way2sat IP-Share
Shared Upstream / Shared Downstream:
The maximum data rate and the contention ratio (sharing factor) specify largely the performance of the service. Service packages include IP-Share Team, Division and Corporate. While standard services grades enable fast Internet access and always-on functionality, the higher end IP-Share Service packages support Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) applications. IP-Share allows companies to connect single or several remote sites with headquarters. It is also the ideal for Cyber Cafés which want to increase their stream of revenues by adding VoIP services to their Internet Access offer.
- 2way2sat IP-Connect
Dedicated Upstream / Dedicated Downstream:
This 100% dedicated service bandwidth (CIR) allows to set-up a uniform Satellite Network across countries, if required. Target groups include Corporations, Administrations, NGOs and ISPs. IP Connect is the first choice for companies seeking to set up a satellite based corporate network. Application specific Quality of Service (QoS) is tailor-made according to the exact requirements of the customer. The IP-Connect network does not need to have a link to the public Internet, which greatly enhances network security.
- 2way2sat VNO
Thanks to the iDirect Technologies, atrexx is able to sell satellite capacity to virtual network operator (VNO) customers enabling them to deploy their own networks without assuming the upfront hardware costs. The iDirect solution will reportedly allow atrexx to resell its satellite capacity to customers who can then operate their own VSAT network without the cost of buying the VSAT hub infrastructure. Each VNO leases network capacity from atrexx. This capacity is physically isolated from the resources rented by other service providers, and can be managed in any manner the service provider sees fit, including using private IP addresses.
The VNO model also provides new operators with network management tools, security and functionality to deliver the applications customers need. The solution allows the customer to manage and control his remote sites, deliver end-user broadband speeds, pay only for the capacity that he uses and expand his capacity at a low cost.
