Australian Satellite Communications (ASC) Deploys iDirect Hub to Support New Partnership With Daltron

HERNDON, Va., March 13, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of VT Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that Australian Satellite Communications Pty Ltd. (ASC) has selected a new Series 15100 Universal Satellite Hub to support a partnership with Daltron, Papua New Guinea's leading ICT solutions provider. The satellite solution will enable Daltron to capitalize on the significant need for high-quality broadband services in Papua New Guinea and new growth opportunities for service providers following recent deregulation in the telecommunications sector. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.

Initially, Daltron will provide satellite solutions to natural resources companies and corporate enterprises, with plans to expand its offering to support education and disaster communications applications.

Daltron chose to partner with Australian Satellite Communications because of its significant expertise in the design and implementation of turnkey solutions including teleport facilities and remote networks, based on iDirect's highly scalable and reliable core satellite platform. Additionally, iDirect's sophisticated network management system, SatManage, provides Daltron with in-depth visibility into network performance and operations, helping the provider deliver a high level of service and responsiveness and drive efficient operations.

"We wanted to work with a company that had the experience, reputation, and managed service capabilities to get our network up and running quickly and efficiently. It is a huge advantage for our customers across the Pacific that we are able to implement a tried and tested solution. In supporting enterprises in this region, it was also critical to use the most reliable technology available. Partnering with ASC and iDirect, we got both." Graham RIXGeneral Manager, Daltron "Recent government deregulation of telecommunications in Papua New Guinea opened up a huge opportunity for Daltron to expand its service portfolio and become the superior business-class satellite service provider in the region.
