ST Engineering iDirect and AXESS Networks Work to Better Connectivity in Mexico
ST Engineering iDirect and AXESS Networks are joining forces to bring better connectivity to remote parts of Mexico. The two companies announced a new deal June 15, in which ST Engineering iDirect will provide AXESS Networks with the first Newtec Dialog XIF hub deployed in Mexico to connect remote communities and businesses. The hub will be utilized by AXESS Networks’ customer, mobile operator Altan, to deliver 4G mobile services to rural sites across the region.
AXESS will leverage ST Engineering iDirect’s Mx-DMA return technology, a core feature of the Dialog platform, to extend 4G cellular backhaul connectivity services to remote parts in Mexico, reaching 100 Mbps/30 Mbps throughput per site. Mx-DMA is a dynamic return technology that will enable AXESS to seamlessly share satellite capacity efficiently among terminals, while meeting demanding throughput requirements in markets such as cellular backhaul, trunking, and high-end enterprise.
“Communities are often difficult to connect in rural areas of the country, but mobile connectivity is a necessity, enabling people and businesses to access critical services such as mobile banking and to stay in touch with friends and family. Through our platform range, we are able to help customers like AXESS scale their networks to extend highly efficient, reliable and cost-effective services to people in harder-to-reach areas, driving our vision of connecting global cities,” said Darren Ludington, regional vice president of sales for the Americas for ST Engineering iDirect.
