Quantis has ordered a Newtec Dialog multiservice platform to complement its existing satellite infrastructure and enable more advanced, customised services for its customers. Quantis is a long-standing Newtec customer, with coverage over Africa, Europe and the Middle East, including a broadband hub (Sat3Play) installed in Arganda, Madrid.
The new Newtec Dialog hub – provided by Newtec, a specialist in designing, developing and manufacturing equipment and technologies for satellite communications – will enable Nortis, a Quantis subsidiary based in Morocco, to deliver satellite broadband services.
Newtec says that Dialog guarantees optimal modulation and bandwidth allocation, whether it is being used for enterprise, consumer broadband, cellular backhaul or mobility in traditional or HTS networks. The hub also features Newtec’s patented return link technology – Mx-DMA, or Cross-Dimensional Multiple Access – which the company claims enables services to run more efficiently and reliably than ever before over satellite by combining the best features of MF-TDMA and SCPC technologies.
“We are pleased Newtec Dialog was able to not only meet the needs of Quantis but also enable them to enter new markets and generate extra revenue,” said Serge Van Herck, CEO at Newtec.
“One area which Quantis will be able to address immediately and cost-effectively with Newtec Dialog is the deployment of 3G and 4G infrastructure by mobile operators, which is being hindered in a number of regions due to the lack of fibre or terrestrial infrastructure to backhaul the thousands of base stations required to cover the population.”
Newtec had previously announced Talia as a new customer for Dialog.
