The Underserved In Indonesia Are Addressed By Newtec Technologies

Indonesian SATCOM service provider Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN) has selected Newtec to connect the nation's underserved rural areas with broadband access.

Using the Newtec Dialog platform, PSN has been supplied with a 4IF Hub module and hundreds of MDM3100 Satellite Modems that feature Mx-DMA® technology to provide services using C-band transponders. The multi-service platform will be used by PSN to deliver satellite Internet access to schools, government offices and Puskesmas (community health clinics) as part of the universal service obligation for MCIT—Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology.

PSN evaluated various options based on SCPC and MF-TDMA technologies and concluded that the Newtec Dialog platform provides the best fit and total cost of ownership, based on the high throughput VSAT capabilities and Newtec’s award-winning return link technology Mx-DMA, which delivers the efficiency of SCPC with the dynamic bandwidth allocation capability of MF-TDMA.

As a multiservice platform, Newtec Dialog enables tailored services and guarantees optimal modulation, bandwidth allocation, service availability, reliable automation of link setups and flexible workflow support, whether being used to provide broadcast, consumer broadband, cellular backhaul or mobility services.
Adi Rahman Adiwoso, the CEO at PSN, stated that this access will make such a huge difference to the lives of those in rural areas of Indonesia, where more traditional means of connectivity are unreliable or non-existent.
