iDirect, Envivio partner to increase satellite bandwidth efficiency for IP

MUMBAI: iDirect Technologies which designs, develops, and markets fast, reliable bi-directional satellite-based broadband access solutions, and Envivio which provides MPEG-4 systems that power services for the broadcast, mobile, enterprise and IPTV markets have announced a strategic technology relationship.

They will collaborate on a project aimed at increasing the efficiency of satellite bandwidth used for the distribution of IP-based digital video, voice and data services. Envivio has joined iDirect's IP Alliance programme after undergoing thorough interoperability testing. The program offers broadcast and enterprise communities proven and comprehensive networking solutions that compliment their current networking strategy and extend it beyond the constraints of the wired world.

iDirect Technologies president and CEO John Kealey says, "The IP Alliance has assembled members like Envivio who are committed to delivering best-of-class solutions to the enterprise community. These strategic technology relationships continue to help our customers better utilise their existing bandwidth and generate more bits per megahertz."

iDirect Technologies works closely with IP Alliance members to promote the interoperability of its technology with industry leading networking companies to extend full turnkey enterprise class solutions to locations where terrestrial connections are unavailable, take too long to implement and/or are too costly.

Envivio president and CTO Julien Signes says, "The enhanced capability of the iDirect platform combined with our highly efficient Envivio MPEG-4 encoding and decoding systems, will enable groundbreaking applications and unlock new opportunities for operators offering satellite broadband distribution networks. Delivering more information using less bandwidth improves the viability and profitability of IP-based services."
