VT iDirect announced that Tuaropaki has launched a broadband network built on
iDirect’s Evolution DVB-S2 with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) product
Tuaropaki installed an iDirect 5IF Hub in
Auckland and will purchase a number of iDirect Evolution satellite routers,
along with PCMA devices and XipLink XA30K network accelerators, to support
anticipated customer growth over the next three years. iDirect is a world
leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.
With the iDirect platform’s built-in Group Quality of Service and ACM capabilities, Tuaropaki will enhance
its Ruralinzone broadband service to deliver attractive data usage plans to
existing customers, as well as target new enterprise and government customers.
The expanded network will position Tuaropaki to meet the
growing capacity needs from its existing customer base, as well as offer
carrier-grade satellite service to support in-demand applications such as
Internet, IP infrastructure extension, VPN access, video, voice over IP,
business continuity, emergency communications, distance education and 3G
cellular backhaul. Tuaropaki’s service will integrate bandwidth from three
beams on the IPStar and GE-23 satellites.
“Rolling out an iDirect Evolution network for
current and future customers is a strategic move in helping Tuaropaki become
the preferred provider of satellite communications to consumers, government and
commercial entities in New Zealand. It puts us in the same league as the best
VSAT operators around the globe who are using the latest technology to deliver
innovative solutions,” said
Warwick HEARN, general manager, Tuaropaki.
“With this major investment, Tuaropaki becomes a
leading iDirect operator in New Zealand. Improved network performance, expanded
satellite coverage and enhanced services will position Tuaropaki to meet
accelerating customer demand and heightened expectations for reliable,
high-speed satellite connectivity,” said John Arnold, regional vice
president, sales, Asia Pacific, iDirect.
