VT iDirect has revealed that Internet Solutions, a Pan-African telecommunications services provider, has launched the first iDirect DVB-S2X network in Africa  — which is currently live across more than 300 sites in Nigeria. The network will allow Internet Solutions to expand into new markets, such as finance and energy, delivering greater satellite throughput efficiencies to its customers. Companies will benefit from cost efficiencies as they expand their network sites, presenting more opportunities for smaller companies to enter the market, according to the release.

Launched using an iDirect Universal Hub chassis and the iQ Desktop remote, the DVB-S2X network gives Internet Solutions a significant competitive advantage in the region as demands from the Africa market are growing. Internet Solutions will be equipped to expand in established markets, while opening new vertical markets through significant efficiency gains.

“The timing is advantageous as the Africa market is growing and more enterprises and organizations are demanding higher performing and more efficient satellite networks to enable their operations,” said VT iDirect Senior Vice President (SVP) of Global Sales John Arnold.
