Industry Recognition

One way of showing our innovation in the satellite communication market is by showing how the industry looks at our innovations. We are proud of this list of national and international prizes that we have been collecting since 2007:

  • Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards for Enterprise Service Innovation - The prestigious Innovation Awards recognise the industry’s most innovative and successful project partnerships between operators and vendors over the last 12 months.  2016, Liquid Telecom and Newtec deployed the first Mx-DMA® satellite links in Africa in response to increasing demand from enterprises wanting always-on satellite connectivity with channels always open and immediately available. Mx-DMA is a dynamic bandwidth allocation technology from Newtec, which is featured on the company’s innovative Newtec Dialog® platform and adapted by Liquid Telecom for the African market. It provides high quality, dedicated connectivity to enterprises at a massively reduced cost by allowing bandwidth to be moved to where it is being demanded, exploiting the ‘bursty’ nature of an IP network – and providing TDMA-like on-demand variable bandwidth allocation with SCPC-like efficiencies.


  • Best Ground Segment Technology - VSAT Global - 2016: Newtec has been presented with the “Best Ground Segment Technology” award at the VSAT Stellar Awards for its dynamic Mx-DMA® bandwidth allocation technology.
