[Satnews] Newtec has announced that Liquid Telecom has selected the Newtec Dialog® multiservice platform to enlarge and improve the company's current VSAT services with more applications and features for current and new customers.
Extending its current relationship with Newtec, Liquid Telecom will use the Newtec Dialog platform to expand its service portfolio towards new markets. The first Newtec VSAT platform with Liquid Telecom became operational in early 2014. Since then, Liquid Telecom has been able to deploy thousands of Newtec VSAT terminals. Liquid Telecom will operate the Newtec Dialog hub alongside its current Newtec Sat3Play® broadband hub, allowing it to expand its current satellite services to more advanced business-to-business applications and deliver reliable cellular backhaul connections for mobile operators throughout Africa.
As a multiservice platform, Newtec Dialog guarantees optimal modulation and bandwidth allocation, whether it is being used for enterprise, consumer broadband, cellular backhaul or mobility in all network. It features Newtec’s patented return link technology Mx-DMA™, which combines the best features of MF-TDMA and SCPC technologies, making Liquid Telecom's VSAT services more bandwidth efficient for larger customers and enabling services to run more efficiently and reliably than before.
The contract between Newtec and Liquid Telecom was signed on November 17 at AfricaCom, which is occurring at the Cape Town Convention Centre, South Africa, until Thursday.
“We chose to add Newtec Dialog to our existing infrastructure as its scalability and flexibility enables us to expand our satellite business and the applications we offer in a cost-effective way,” said Scott Mumford, Head of Satellite Services at Liquid Telecom. “The on-board technology ensures the highest efficiency, meaning our existing customers will directly experience the benefits.”
Serge Van Herck, CEO at Newtec, said, “The scalability of the Newtec Dialog platform will enable Liquid Telecom to build its infrastructure as it grows, making it a cost-effective solution as well.”
