Newtec targets large and small broadcasters with new satellite platform
Satellite service provider Newtec has launched a new multiservice platform it says will allow large and small broadcasters to use satellites at a level appropriate to their business needs.
Newtec says its Dialog® scalable and flexible multiservice platform allows operators to build and adapt their infrastructure easily as their business and the satellite market grows and changes. The platform can be used to address consumer and enterprise VSAT, broadcast, cellular backhaul and trunking, as well as government and defence markets.
The company says Dialog gives operators the power to offer a variety of new services on one platform, knowing they are using the most optimal modulation and bandwidth allocation.
Newtec Product Manager Mr Jo De Loor says: “Using this new mix of return technologies typically results in doubling the transponder throughput using the same bandwidth, or alternatively allows service providers to serve twice as many customers as before while not spending a penny more on space segment.”
The company’s CEO, Mr Serge Van Herck, says the platform is designed for every type of networking, from the smallest with, for example, five remotes, up to the largest, having hundreds of thousands of remotes, from single coverage to multi-spot High Throughput Satellite (HTS) networks.
“Additionally, operators can invest as the business grows, the HUB scalability and flexibility enables low up-front CAPEX [capital expenditure] requirements,” he says.
Mr Jean-Pierre De Muyt, Newtec’s Vice President of Strategic Business Development, adds: “The versatility of Newtec Dialog now gives operators the power to make decisions on their technology of choice without having to worry about the continuous evolution of end-users’ applications and requirements.”
