iGT's Bandwidth Timeslot Correlator Provides Visibility Into Network Statistics to Enhance Bandwidth Optimization

Company's SatManage 5.2 Enterprise Add-On Module Supports Traffic Engineering Leading to Bandwidth Savings

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - Aug 26, 2013) - iDirect Government Technologies (iGT), a wholly owned subsidiary of VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), today announced the availability of its Bandwidth Timeslot Correlator (BTC), an add-on module to its SatManage 5.2 Enterprise edition that allows network operators to view and analyze bandwidth and timeslot allocations.

The BTC expands Network Operations Center (NOC) capabilities in a Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) network to enable network operators to manage timeslot allocations and to optimize networks to avoid network traffic gridlocks. This is important because several users share the same frequency in TDMA networks, and critical communications must get through the network for operation success.

The add-on software module provides an automated graphical representation of historical timeslot usage and bandwidth for a given network, in-route group or remote. By using historical data, users can re-define and enhance upstream links for better throughput performance and achieve savings in satellite bandwidth and costs. These report designations are configurable through a user interface.

"The BTC continues iGT's investment in bringing to market solutions that support connectivity for crucial government missions and that promote satcom network efficiency," said Karl Fuchs, iGT Vice President of Technology. "The BTC can arm military, government and emergency response agencies with insight into network traffic so they can plan effectively for communications. Organizations which require traffic engineering and better network optimization can rely on the BTC to meet their needs."
