HERNDON, Va., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of VT Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that OmniAccess S.L., the leading communications provider to super- and mega-yacht owners, will be the first iDirect partner to upgrade its entire maritime satellite network to iDirect's soon-to-be-released next-generation Evolution X7 remotes and iDX 3.2 software featuring Adaptive TDMA.  Through the upgrade, OmniAccess will be able to offer substantially higher throughput rates for maritime applications, as well as significantly increased link-availability for its global customer base. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.

OmniAccess will leverage the X7, with its new multi-core processor, to deliver throughput rates in excess of 50 Mbps, significantly enhancing its industry-leading BroadBEAM connectivity at sea service. This will enable the company to offer yacht owners and passengers high speed access to high-definition video conferencing, streaming HDTV channels, corporate VPN access and toll-quality voice calls from anywhere in the world.

By implementing Adaptive TDMA, OmniAccess will also be able to provide greater network availability to its customers who regularly travel through changing weather and varied satellite spectrum conditions. With iDX 3.2, VSAT networks can be designed to provide more than 20 dB in fade margin without compromising clear weather throughput, resulting in a 40% to 80% throughput gain in handling rain fade and beam contours for a typical mobile network.  

"At OmniAccess we strive to offer industry-leading speed and availability performance to our customers, and we are convinced that the combination of iDirect's iDX 3.2 software and powerful next-generation Evolution X7 remotes will bring major benefits to our customers. Upgrading our entire network will be a very important step for our company, and we are convinced that by becoming the first adopter of iDirect's leading technology, OmniAccess is well positioned to take full benefit of the abundant new bandwidth and capabilities of new high throughput satellite technology."
