AiTelecom Launches First DVB-S2X Network in Mexico

Service provides higher-quality connectivity, improved speeds, and cost savings across multiple markets

Herndon, Va., April 8, 2019 – VT iDirect, a company of VT Systems, today announced that AiTelecom has launched the first iDirect DVB-S2X network in Mexico. Utilizing VT iDirect’s iQ Series of remotes, this next-generation DVB-S2X technology will enable AiTelecom to offer high-speed and cost-effective services throughout the region to meet the growing demand for connectivity across multiple market segments.

With DVB-S2X ground technology and new high-throughput satellite (HTS) capacity, VSAT is now more affordable and of a higher quality, making it a viable alternative to fiber connectivity for individuals and businesses across Mexico. AiTelecom’s network will improve connectivity and speeds while adding capacity for rural locations, enterprises, oil and gas companies, maritime operators and social inclusion programs. AiTelecom is also partnering with country-wide Mobile Carriers to provide 4G and eventually 5G backhaul services.

“Satellite connectivity represents a large opportunity for driving the challenge to reduce the digital divide in communities within Mexico,” said Orlando Castillo Trelles, CEO, AiTelecom. “With VT iDirect’s DVB-S2X platform and iQ Series remotes, our customers can access high-speed, high-quality internet, no matter how remote the location.”
