Globe Business recently announced its tie-up with VT iDirect, a company under satellite-based IP communications provider Vision Technologies Systems, with its very small aperture terminals (VSAT) to bolster its portfolio of services for its business clients.
Through VSAT, the corporate and enterprise information and communications technology arm of Globe Telecom will be running data services in the Philippines over an MPLS network, targeting automated teller machines or ATM banking, mining and government services as initial markets.
The iDirect Evolution platform, coupled with the iDirect X3 remote, provide flexibility and efficiency necessary to help Globe deliver services that meet the demands of customers, which include large companies, multinational corporations and the like.
?Our partnership with Globe Telecom by way of Globe Business marks iDirect?s initial entry into the Philippines and further demonstrates VSAT?s strong growth in the Asia-Pacific region. It showcases one of the unique value propositions that satellite can deliver, being able to provide high-speed connectivity to regions of the country that had previously been unconnected,? acknowledged iDirect Asia general manager Tom Cheong.
According to officials of both companies, delivering connectivity to regions of the Philippines that require the reach of terrestrial services generates new social and economic opportunities not only for the telecommunication company?s business clientele, but also its individual customers.
In addition, VSAT deployed through Globe Business can help establish disaster recovery networks to enable maintaining voice and data communications at all times.
