BusinessCom Launches iDirect VSAT Services in the Middle East
[Satellite TODAY 04-21-10] BusinessCom has launched iDirect Evolution Ku-band satellite Internet access services on the Loral Skynet Telstar-11N and SES NSS-12 geostationary satellites, BusinessCom announced April 20.
The Evolution services cover the Middle East, Iraq and surrounding regions. BusinessCom said its primary markets for the services are DTH and SOHO users, Internet cafes, SCADA, telemetry applications and small to medium-sized wireless hot spots.
“Because the Ku-band Evolution X3 satellite based equipment is much more affordable than the C-band PEP-iDirect VSAT kits, BusinessCom quality service just got one step closer to a consumer market,” BusinessCom said in a statement.
