atrexx... No Deposit And A Lot Of Return (SatCom)

Geographical coverage of the Telstar 12 satellite
[SatNews] Internet services fragmentation is the target for this Company's broadband offerings in South America...

Satellite service provider, atrexx, has introduced a new service platform to its product portfolio specifically targeted at meeting demand for broadband services in the South America region which, like other emerging regions of the world, is highly fragmented in terms of access to fast Internet services. Many parts of the continent are not covered by terrestrial connectivity due to the vast geographical nature of the region, and the dispersed population. Satellite technology offers the people the opportunity to become connected without the need for cable or fiber, which is often too expensive to rollout to more rural areas. The new services will enable small enterprises, including farms, to become connected to the global marketplace and to improve their businesses by using the Internet to become more competitive and to sell their goods across the rest of the continent — and the world.

The 2way2sat services, delivered in Ku-band on Telstar 12 satellite at 15 degrees West, require no deposit fee. The service includes access to fast Internet, always-on functionality and Voice-over-IP (VoIP). It operates on a 3-month recurring contract basis. The iDirect Evolution X3 platform offers 30 percent more bandwidth efficiency in the outbound link plus Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) that is optimized and dynamically adjusted for each individual remote station. It also offers higher resistance to rain attenuation and an additional bandwidth gain of 50 percent at clear sky conditions, made possible through ACM.
