ION launches iDirect evolution upgrade

ION - International Ocean Networks is pleased to announce that the whole of the ION network is now upgraded to full ‘Evolution’ standard. This upgrade means better quality, more resilient services and higher performance overall for all services.

The upgrade of all networks to iDirect Evolution 3.2 is fully complete and is now operating across all ION solutions. ION’s network upgrade will provide customers with improved quality of service and will also provide users with a network of greater capacity allowing ION to add more maritime services to its growing client base without reducing the performance of existing clients.

The iDirect platform will enable ION to strengthen the resilience of its network. It does this because the ‘Evolution’ upgrade uses iDirect’s Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) technology, which allows the system to provide more reliable service and ensure higher availability during adverse weather conditions or in cases of partial line-of-sight obstructions.

By automatically optimising link performance, balancing efficiency and availability during bad link reception the result is increased uptime for ION customers. This means fewer interruptions to the user. Simply put they have made their service better.
