Talia Announces “OnDemand” Business Continuity Service Built on iDirect’s Satellite Platform
High-Speed VSAT network to provide backup for fibre connectivity, targeted at growing Middle East market
Talia has introduced a business continuity service that will be built on iDirect’s satellite ground infrastructure platform. Talia OnDemand has been designed for organisations operating in regions where fixed line services can be unreliable or where occasional use, backup, redundancy or disaster recovery solutions are required.
The service will initially focus on the Middle East and African regions, which represents the most promising VSAT growth opportunities in the world. Improved service economics, enabled by High Throughput Satellites, will make satellite connectivity more competitive to alternative solutions and increasingly part of the global end-to-end network.
The Talia OnDemand service is powered by ConnectPlus, the Talia designed and developed, patent pending connectivity solution working in conjunction with the iDirect Satellite Platform. ConnectPlus is a network edge appliance connecting a customer’s network to the Talia OnDemand service.
“Today, uninterrupted Internet connectivity is an essential requirement to the success of organisations,” said Jack Buechler, Vice President, Business Development, Talia. “By building our OnDemand service on the iDirect platform, we are leveraging iDirect’s industry-best technology to deliver the reliable performance our customers require when it comes to running their core operations.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Talia to support the growth of businesses and organisations in the rapidly developing Middle East and African countries,” stated Dave Harrower, VP of International Sales and Business Development of VT iDirect. “One of our strategic technology priorities is to integrate satellite communications seamlessly into core enterprise networks, and Talia’s OnDemand service showcases precisely how that can be done to enable always-on connectivity for their customers.”
