Marlink moves C-band network to iDirect

Marlink reports that it is to introduce new C-band services on the iDirect platform, utilising DVB-S2 with Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) technology on regional, multi-regional and global maritime C-band beams.

The company says that the new technology should help to improve network efficiency and open up new options for customers using its Sealink global C-band service.

The implementation of the new platform follows the recent upgrade of Marlink’s VSAT network with the integration of iDirect’s Evolution X5 Satellite Router and latest operating software release, facilitating new capabilities like Automatic Beam Switching.

“Bringing the iDirect platform to our C-band services is part of our overall strategy to offer increased choice in customised Sealink services, which are available alongside our standardised WaveCall portfolio,” said Tore Morten Olsen, CEO, Marlink.

“The use of DVB-S2 with ACM is new to maritime VSAT on C-band and we believe that the seamless communication that this technology enables is very attractive for vessels with high requirements for bandwidth and quality of service on a global basis.”
