Latest revenue figures included in the report highlight the fact iDirect has grown revenues for ten consecutive years, solidifying its lead in the enterprise VSAT market. iDirect is a world leader in satellite-based IP communications technology.
iDirect continues to maintain the number-one market position in the satellite market for IP hub sales. Its share of terminal shipments has quadrupled from five percent in 2004 to nearly 20% in 2012.
