August 23, 2022 – ST Engineering iDirect, a global leader in satellite communications, has today signed a multi-million dollar contract with leading regional satellite operator, Türksat, for the ground systems required to run a variety of services over the Türksat 5B satellite. ST Engineering iDirect will provide multiple Dialog® XIF hubs and 5,000 remotes, enabling Türksat to augment services to various markets including government, enterprise, mobility and cellular backhaul across 30 beams, providing the best connectivity experience from low data rates all the way to very large throughputs of over 1 Gbps for the most demanding applications. The new installations will ensure that Türksat can run its satellite networks more efficiently, easily and rapidly adapt their existing networks or build new ones through ST Engineering iDirect’s Network Management System (NMS) that allows services, capacity, terminals and beams to be scaled in an instant, fully automated and orchestrated way. Based on the latest DVB-S2X technology and Mx-DMA® MRC technology, Türksat can also maximize the benefits of the powerful 5B HTS by leveraging the highest efficiencies and throughputs of the DVB-S2X waveform as well as optimize the return link with Mx-DMA MRC. Both platform and remotes can provide the flexibility, multi-service capability and scalability to cater to Türksat’s HTS business today and as it expands in the future.
