iDirect EC Series remotes deliver advanced embedded computing capabilities

VT iDirect, Inc., a company of Vision Technologies Systems, Inc. has released the EC Series Remotes, the company said.

With the addition of embedded computing functionality to specific iDirect remotes, the EC Series enables partners to couple market-leading iDirect technology with best-in-class software solutions tailored for a given market. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.

The EC Series of remotes consolidate solutions that would typically require use of a multi-box configuration into a 1U rack-mounted form factor, reducing the hardware footprint, simplifying installation, decreasing points of failure and lowering power consumption.

This series of solution remotes offer enhanced functionality to standard iDirect remotes by adding extra processing power and memory to run approved software applications to deliver market specific solutions, such as low-end enterprise connectivity, to cellular backhaul, to communications on the move.

Partners are able to license supported applications that enhance the capabilities of the remote, delivering specialized services to meet specific market needs.

VT iDirect provides IP-based satellite communications that enable partners to optimise their networks, differentiate their services and profitably expand their businesses.
