      [Via Satellite 09-17-2015] VT iDirect today announced that Harris CapRock Communications is delivering more than 1.5 billion bits per second (1.5 Gbps) of traffic across its base of maritime customers using its iDirect Evolution network. The service provider is deploying iDirect X7 remotes in order to meet the growing demand for high-speed voice, video and data services from both passengers and crew.

      iDirect cited the surge in connected devices, particularly aboard cruise ships, to the climbing demand, as well as ship operators who are turning to VSAT for equipment monitoring, IT integration, and remote access, among other services.
