Multiple Asian defense forces have selected ST Engineering iDirect’s Evolution platform for both fixed and mobile military broadband needs, the company announced Tuesday. 

An unnamed Asian ministry of defense (MoD) deployed multiple Evolution hubs to increase resiliency of bandwidth for its army, naval forces and paramilitary units. The army replaced their legacy SCPC/MCPC solution with a DVB-S2X Evolution multi-carrier mesh solution to provide reliable critical communications between their mobile units. ST Engineering iDirect said this allowed the MoD to maintain connectivity in challenging terrain and reduce latency. 

Another long-standing MoD customer upgraded and expanded its network by adding two Agilis high power amplifiers (HPAs), several new Evolution hubs and 100 iQ terminals for extreme environmental conditions. And a third customer uses Evolution for connectivity for its army, navy, air force, special ground forces, and public sector organizations. 

“The Evolution platform is the technology of choice for MoDs across the Asia Pacific region. Its repeated selection is testimony that this platform provides a field-proven, highly reliable and versatile solution that supports mission critical applications across Asia, no matter how tough the environment,” said John Arnold, ST Engineering iDirect’s regional vice president of Asia Pacific.
