Virtual Network Operators (VNOs) rent network capacity from a host network operator (HNO). Capacity is physically isolated from the rest of the network, and can be managed to any specifications the VNO requires, including using private IP addresses. Virtual networks offer all the opportunity of the satellite industry without assuming the risk, or the upfront investment of deploying a separate network. And, since VNO can start with as little as a single line card, they have the ability to deploy exactly the network bandwidth for their initial business case, with the flexibility to expand as much as the markets demand. The VNO model allows new operators to develop niche opportunities worldwide, and provides them with state of the art network management tools, security and functionality to deliver the applications customers need.


iDirect hubs can configure networks starting at just 64 Kbps, and scale up to 18 Mbps in 1 Kbps increments.

This, combined with the bandwidth efficiency of iDirect networks, significantly lowers both the capital expenditures and the operating expenditures for carriers utilizing iDirect equipment.
