Globecomm launches VSAT service

Globecomm has announced full commercial availability of its new ‘Globecomm VSAT, powered by iDirect’ high-capacity satellite service, which will be aimed at enterprise, government and maritime markets.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The service includes narrowband and high-throughput applications provided over a scalable network with a range of shared services, as well as fully private networks as required. Coverage includes the major ocean regions most relevant to merchant shipping, the company says.

“Globecomm VSAT enables us to provide the industry's most ubiquitous global broadband capability for maritime and land-based enterprise, government, critical infrastructure and telecom customers. Our focus is to supply our customers with the satellite coverage and capacity required to support their growing needs beyond basic connectivity,” said Globecomm SVP of corporate strategy, Jon Kirchner.

The VSAT network is based on iDirect Evolution IP-based platform technology, and can communicate with a range of iDirect modems including the X7, which supports automatic beam switching as well as new HTS services.

Customers will have access to Ku-, Ka-, and C-band services on the new platform, Globecomm says, using the company’s global teleport presence, terrestrial fibre connectivity and iDirect's coding and network management to provide an end-to-end managed service.{/mprestriction}
