GLOBE Telecom said it has partnered with VT iDirect Inc. (iDirect), company of Vision Technologies Systems Inc. (VT Systems ) and a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology, to offer local businesses high-speed connectivity in previously unconnected areas.
The partnership between iDirect and Globe Telecom will bring very small aperture terminal (VSAT) connectivity to regions of the Philippines that are out of reach of terrestrial services. It will also facilitate the establishment of disaster recovery networks to enable reliable voice and data communications at all times.
“Globe Business further increases its influence in the region by partnering with iDirect Asia as we combine our expertise for Philippine businesses to leverage on best-in-class satellite capabilities,” said Nikko Acosta, senior vice president of Globe Business, the corporate and enterprise information and communications technology arm of Globe Telecom.
“Our partnership with Globe Telecom by way of Globe Business marks iDirect’s initial entry into the Philippines and further demonstrates VSAT’s strong growth in the Asia-Pacific region,” iDirect Asia general manager Tom Cheong said.
“It showcases one of the unique value propositions that satellite can deliver, being able to provide high-speed connectivity to regions of the country that had previously been unconnected,” Cheong added.
