ST Engineering iDirect Lands LatAm Connectivity Deal – Via Satellite


ST Engineering iDirect is expanding a strategic partnership with AITELECOM/APCO to improve connectivity services throughout Latin America. AITELECOM/APCO is a satellite and terrestrial communications provider mainly targeting customers in Mexico, but also other countries in Latin America. The two companies announced the expanded partnership on Feb. 27.

The two companies have deployed ST Engineering iDirect’s 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.

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 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.

“We partnered with ST Engineering iDirect as we were impressed by the team’s ability to provide a comprehensive turnkey and managed-services solution under an innovative long-term scheme. We’ve found deployment to be very quick and efficient, with excellent technical support and project planning. Above all, we’re seeing very strong network performance with exceptional bit/hertz efficiencies,” Orlando Castillo, CEO of AITELECOM/APCO, said in a statement.
