Described as a scalable and flexible multiservice platform that allows operators to build and adapt their infrastructure easily as their business and the satellite market grows and changes, Newtec Dialog receives its European launch at IBC2014.
“The Newtec Dialog platform is designed to be used for every type of network, from the very smallest, to the very largest, and from single coverage to multispot High Throughput Satellite networks,” said Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec.
Newtec says that Dialog is designed to give operators optimal modulation and bandwidth allocation regardless of the application it is being used for. Newtec’s engineers have achieved this, according to the company, by inventing a new patented return link technology called Mx-DMA or Cross-Dimensional Multiple Access. Together with the new HighResCoding, it is said to combine the best of both worlds, incorporating the best features of MF-TDMA and SCPC technologies and enabling services to run more efficiently than ever before over satellite — all while still providing the option to have the platform also run in either SCPC or MF-TDMA.
For dedicated capacity services, Newtec says that Mx-DMA typically brings two attractive options when compared to SCPC: save more than 35% bandwidth, or serve 54% more customers with the same bandwidth.
Newtec Dialog supports multiple satellites, multiple frequency bands, and regular and spot beam satellites. It is said to be scalable from five to hundreds of thousands of terminals. Featuring what Newtec says is highly efficient DVB-S2 ACM and Clean Channel Technology in the forward link, the new product provides hierarchical QoS management with seven classes, advanced network management system capabilities, both GUI and API, including VNO support. Satlink Manager is provided for satellite resource allocation, reservation and automated link setup or teardown.
