Satellite Spotlight is a daily online news source for the satellite industry operated by the Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC), a leading communications and technology community. For more than 10 years, TMC has honored companies across several categories with Product of the Year Awards, which are regarded among the most prestigious and respected awards in the communications and technology sector worldwide. For the Satellite Spotlight Product of the Year Awards, editors consider companies that have demonstrated the vision, leadership and thoroughness associated with these awards, while contributing to the advancement of technologies that address real needs in the marketplace.
As an Operations Support System (OSS), iDirect’s SatManage product is designed to handle operators’ emerging network management requirements by integrating and automating disparate systems into a single, user-friendly interface. As service providers expand their networks to support new applications and keep up with customer demands, it is becoming more difficult for them to provision, manage and monitor networks effectively and efficiently. SatManage offers comprehensive network management and performance monitoring functionality to improve management of large, complex customer deployments, resulting in stronger network performance, faster response times, greater customer satisfaction and lower operating costs. Major satellite service providers including BT, Intelsat General and MTN have implemented SatManage to scale their networks, improve overall service quality and network operations, and gain the intelligence and visibility necessary to optimize their business.
"The opportunity to expand networks to capture new customers and grow revenue has never been greater for satellite service providers. We designed SatManage to help providers grow confidently and efficiently by streamlining and automating network operations so they can keep customers satisfied and focus on their overall business. A 2010 Product of the Year Award from Satellite Spotlight affirms how positively the industry is receiving SatManage and we’re honored with the distinction."
