iDirect X3

IDirect Evolution X3 is the first next-generation satellite router featuring iDirect’s highly efficient implementation of the DVB-S2 standard. Evolution X3 is ideally suited for broadband requirements such as Internet and VPN access to enterprise networks, as well as real-time VoIP and videoconferencing.

With DVB-S2 and Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) on the outbound and deterministic TDMA on the return, the Evolution X3 Satellite Router maximizes the efficiency of satellite capacity to enable new opportunities for star topology networking. The Evolution X3 Satellite Router is an integrated satellite modem and IP router supporting a wide range of carrier IP data rates, FEC codes and modulation types.
