This proof-of-concept is critical in helping SpeedCast achieve a leading position in cellular backhaul provisioning and helping mobile operators extend the reach of their services via satellite connectivity.

As demand for 4G/LTE service continues to escalate around the globe, SpeedCast is helping mobile operators scale their networks efficiently through delivery of a managed service offering, delivering high performance with no capital expenditures for the operator. Core to that strategy is choosing the right mobile backhaul that can extend data connectivity into rural and remote areas, along with specialized environments, such as emergency services and disaster recovery, in a cost-effective manner while ensuring high service reliability.

With test results hitting 350 Mbps on the downstream, iDirect’s DVB-S2X technology provides a proof-of-concept that essentially doubles previous levels of speed achieved in the market. Designed to provide a path to the most optimal ongoing network performance, iDirect’s DVB-S2X strategy puts SpeedCast in best position to match network speed and quality of service expectations, both today and going forward.

“Today, SpeedCast plays a critical role in helping mobile operators extend their service offering into new geographical areas to capture greater revenue,” says Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO of SpeedCast. “After witnessing a new throughput record for GTP/LTE traffic being transmitted over a single iDirect terminal, we are excited about the benefits it can provide to our customers in terms of speed and efficiency. We continue to see growing demand from mobile operators and such technological advancements will be key to ensure our continuous success in meeting operators’ needs.”
