      [Via Satellite 07-07-2015] Satellite service provider Axesat has implemented iDirect’s Remote Commissioning Solution to help accelerate the commissioning of its Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) remotes. The solution helps the company deploy new services more efficiently and add customers on to the network faster.

      Axesat is a multinational company with presence in Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, and Central America. The service provider is targeting Mexico as its base for serving the entire Latin American market. Roughly half of its 12,000 VSATs are installed in this region where it anticipates new opportunities across core markets such as retail, infrastructure, financial, and energy, growing the business by 40 to 50 percent.

      Axesat’s VSAT service is based on iDirect Evolution. The iDirect Remote Commissioning Solution is based on Integrasys’ Satmotion product and allows Axesat to autonomously point and adjust its antennas, streamlining the overall commissioning of its X1, X3 and X5 remotes.
