MEASAT Deploys First DVB-S2X Service in Asia


June 24, 2018

VT iDirect, Inc. announced that MEASAT Satellite Systems has deployed the first iDirect DVB-S2X network in Malaysia in a bid to bring scalable and affordable satellite broadband Internet services across Malaysia.


This state-of-the-art platform allows MEASAT to tap into new markets and take advantage of High Throughput Satellite (HTS) opportunities in a cost-effective manner. Complementing existing terrestrial connectivity, the new service provides an additional communications option for Malaysians with limited or no access to broadband.

MEASAT chose to use iDirect’s Universal Hub chassis with iQ Desktop remotes, as well as iDirect’s ULC-T line cards designed to support much higher symbol rates of up to 119 Msps and higher modulation and coding (MODCOD) schemes via a software license upgrade. iDirect’s ULC-R line cards feature Adaptive TDMA, multi-channel support, and a path to higher symbol rates on the return.

“With VT iDirect, MEASAT can rest assured they are getting the most innovative satellite solutions and support services,” said John Arnold, Senior Vice President of Global Sales, VT iDirect. “Our company mission is to bring connectivity to diverse and challenging environments. I am happy we are helping MEASAT provide a solution for customers previously constrained by location and cost.”
