Bentley Walker has launched a live Digital Video Broadcasting-Satellite-Second Generation Extension (DVB-S2X) satellite service leveraging iDirect’s iQ Desktop and iDX 4.0 software. 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.
According to Bentley Walker, iDirect’s DVB-S2X technology allows the company to leverage the benefits of Avanti’s High Throughput Satellite (HTS) Ka-band capacity, supporting Modulation and Coding (MODCODs) up to 256APSK, to significantly increase network efficiency and performance. iDirect stated that its iQ remote supports a high number of traffic sessions and delivers more than 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.
