New Vizada Networks iDirect Services Go Live Today
“The launch of our new iDirect based services in Tanzania was a successful event, so we are confident that customers will take us up on our new offering of highly reliable and cost effective connectivity,” states Stefano Vittor, CEO of Vizada Networks. “With our new infrastructure in place, we really can offer a level of service and availability not before seen in Tanzania and the East Coast of Africa and believe that businesses and organisations in the region will be keen to try it for themselves.”
The new Viznet Dynamic Africa Ku-band services are primarily aimed at organisations and businesses having branches in the Eastern Africa region who want to connect to Dar es Salaam or other major cities in East Africa, directly. Using iDirect DVB-S2/ACM satellite technology in addition to Vizada Networks’ proprietary technology, Viznet Dynamic delivers a secure, reliable broadband connection regardless of location or local environment. The new iDirect hub in Tanzania also offers dual redundant connectivity through direct connection to both the SEACOM and EASSy subsea cables.
iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology. Its solutions enable Vizada Networks to make efficient use of available bandwidth and pass the outcome of this onto customers in terms of competitive pricing. With additional in-house developed bandwidth/traffic management system, Vizada Networks is able to offer private networks, MPLS connections and voice lines over the iDirect platform.
Vizada Networks utilises iDirect’s latest iDX3.0 software at its new hub in Tanzania. iDX3.0 enables service providers to switch any Evolution router back and forth between TDMA and SCPC based on dynamic bandwidth requirements. This provides adaptability to support each application with the most efficient transport technology whilst reducing infrastructure and operating costs. It also enhances visibility into SCPC link performance for overall network efficiency and provides expandability of a core platform to grow business in line with demand.
“Our new services from Tanzania combine a number of state-of-the-art technologies to ensure that customers receive flexible and reliable connectivity. In addition to offering high availability supported by the redundancy of the SEACOM and EASSy subsea cables, Viznet Dynamic services are enhanced by local and European NOC support, to make sure that customers receive the best service possible,” concludes Vittor.
