February 27, 2024 – ST Engineering iDirect and AITELECOM/APCO, a leading satellite and terrestrial communications provider, are expanding their partnership to deploy new cutting-edge technology on the SES 17 network, increasing connectivity services throughout Latin America. Together, the companies have deployed ST Engineering iDirect’s flexible and scalable Dialog multiservice satellite communications platform with hundreds of operational sites deploying its MDM3310 modems across two high throughput satellite (HTS) ka-band beams. Such platforms take advantage of the high packets per second processing capabilities specifically designed for 4G/5G mobile backhaul applications. Advancing on this success, AITELECOM/APCO is continuing to work with ST Engineering iDirect as it looks to expand to additional HTS beams on the SES 17 network. The update will further roll out ST Engineering iDirect’s award-winning Mx-DMA® MRC waveform with intelligent automation, which has been a key component in enabling AITELECOM/APCO to deliver critical connectivity for 4G cellular backhaul and enterprise services.
