[Satellite TODAY 05-24-11] Marlink is expanding its portfolio with the introduction of new C-band services on the iDirect platform, the company announced May 23. These services aim to enhance network efficiency and open up new options for customers using SealinkTM global C-band coverage for business critical applications. The services will utilize DVB-S2 with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) technology on regional, multi-regional and global maritime C-band.

            “Bringing the iDirect platform to our C-band services is part of our overall strategy to offer increased choice in customized Sealink services, which are available alongside our standardized WaveCallTM portfolio. The use of DVB-S2 with ACM is new to maritime VSAT on C-band and we believe that the seamless communication that this technology enables is very attractive for vessels with high requirements for bandwidth and quality of service on a global basis,” Marlink CEO Tore Morten Olsen said in a statement.
