Based on the next-generation DVB-S2 standard, Evolution increases SkyStream’s bandwidth efficiency by as much as 30 percent over its previous system. An additional gain of 50 percent is also possible through Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), an advanced feature of DVB-S2 which iDirect has built into its Evolution product line. SkyStream has used the bandwidth savings it has achieved from Evolution, to expand its coverage area for maritime customers, adding C-band satellite coverage over the Indian Ocean and Far East to complement its existing Ku-band service across the Arabian, Red and Mediterranean Seas.
Further, ACM enables SkyStream to expand its service to a new yachting segment that uses smaller than 1-meter antennas by supporting multiple outdoor configurations on the same network. For both new and existing customers, SkyStream will continue to support high-speed communication applications, including email, voice and data, as well as extended GSM network access and Video-on-Demand.
