Next-generation satellite terminal provider Isotropic Systems is partnering with VT iDirect to create a satellite ground terminal with integrated modem technology and provide streaming video-friendly broadband to the underserved.

Isotropic Systems’ technology is designed to deliver satellite broadband to previously non-addressable markets. As part of the partnership, Isotropic Systems will integrate an iDirect board level modem that is compatible with Isotropic’s integrated modem bays for a fully integrated terminal offering.

While retaining compatibility with standard external modem interfaces, the modular support of a broad range of different modem technologies is combined with Isotropic Systems’ multi-beam capability.

“Our agreement with VT iDirect is another step in our plan to dramatically alter satellite communications by changing the user economics enabled by our integrated technology and deliver high-throughput satellite services to untapped markets,” said John Finney, founder and CEO of Isotropic Systems. “The completely integrated solution we launch with iDirect technology will deliver satellite data, mobility and broadband services at a fraction of the cost of existing ground systems. When HTS ground technology enables mass-market use of satellites, the industry will enter into a new period of unprecedented growth from any orbit or frequency.”

“Isotropic System’s unique optical technology introduces extraordinary value and efficiency to the global HTS markets we serve,” added Greg Quiggle, VP, emerging products, VT iDirect. “Building upon this with our integrated modem technology enables our customers to realize lower terminal, installation and maintenance costs while proactively preparing for emerging multi-orbit networks.”
