Bentley Walker, the largest supplier and operator of VSAT Networks outside of North America, has launched a live DVB-S2X satellite service leveraging iDirect´s iQ Desktop and iDX 4.0 software, the company said.
Bentley Walker will deploy the new service in the Middle East with capacity from Avanti´s HYLAS 2 Ka-band satellite. The DVB-S2X-based service will target a range of end users including consumer markets, small-to-medium enterprises, large corporate companies, Wi-Fi hotspots and military organizations.
iDirect´s DVB-S2X technology allows Bentley Walker to leverage the benefits of Avanti´s HTS Ka-band capacity, supporting MODCODs up to 256APSK, to significantly increase network efficiency and performance. The iQ remote supports a high number of traffic sessions and delivers over 100 Mbps for a high-quality, cost-effective solution. Furthermore, with the software-defined iQ remote, Bentley Walker can adapt its service to future customer requirements by licensing additional throughput and networking capabilities.
Bentley Walker is ranked as the largest supplier and operator of VSAT Networks outside of North America. Comsys independently audited Bentley Walker as having around 45% of the Market in Europe and the Middle East, to date having sold and brought online over 40,000 VSATs.
