This is important especially now during the height of the maritime season for yachts in the Middle East. Milano Teleport is mainly using two types of Newtec modems depending on the throughput required – Newtec’s MDM33xx and the MDM5000 Satellite Modem series.
A number of vessels are already in service, with Milano Teleport seeing significantly reduced Operational Expenditure (OpEx) as a result of the Newtec Dialog hub located at its teleport in Italy. Milano Teleport is also taking advantage of the multiservice capability Newtec Dialog brings. In addition to offering maritime services over the infrastructure, it is using the same Newtec Dialog hub to deliver broadband connectivity services in Africa. Newtec’s certified business partner Diem Technologies was also involved in the project, primarily in the project planning phase and to support the distribution.
Newtec's Dialog features the award-winning return link technology Mx-DMA, which delivers the efficiency of SCPC with the bandwidth allocation of MF-TDMA.
