Imtech Marine extends Ku-band VSAT network

Imtech Marine has extended its global Ku-band VSAT network to add coverage in the South Atlantic Ocean, between South America and Africa.

The network utilises the iDirect Evolution platform, supporting capabilities such as automatic beam switching.

Imtech Marine, together with its Florida-based partner ITC, has recently upgraded to the latest version of the iDirect Evolution software, version 3.1, which the company says will allow maritime terminals to switch beams faster and more easily than before.

The new software is also claimed to be able to improve IP throughput and to offer more efficient multicasting, making video applications more efficient.

Eric van den Adel, Imtech Marine managing director, thinks that “by upgrading our global VSAT network, we can offer our customers a higher throughput, better coverage and provide the most economical and effective business and crew communications.”
