Pactel International... Linking Up (SATCOM)
[SatNews] This month, Pactel International established a new satellite link between their US Hub and the Cocos Islands, using Newtec’s DVB-S2 technology — the new service addressed the immediate expansion needs for the local Internet service provider, CIIA.
The satellite link is designed to carry Internet traffic to/from the Cocos Islands. The new DVB-S2 platform is directly connected to Pactel
’s redundant backbone (in Hawaii) via the APSTAR-6
satellite and provides Cocos Island’s residents with direct access to US Tier 1 Internet backbone, ensuring higher Internet speed and reliability.
