Embracing Transitions in Satcom: Let's Meet at CABSAT 2018
Let's talk about your HTS, broadcast or mobile backhaul business; looking forward!


Newtec’s solutions for broadcast and mobility harness improved efficiencies and throughputs delivered by High Throughput Satellites (HTS) and spot beam technology to deliver high-quality services for operators and service providers alike:


Mobile Backhaul 2G/3G/4G

As mobile operators face increasing demand to extend their services, cellular backhaul over satellite enables connectivity, even in regions where terrestrial infrastructure is limited or non-existent. While 2G and 3G are still the primary mobile services deployed, 4G’s popularity is quickly growing, bringing significant volumes of data and an added need for efficiency and enhanced Quality of Experience (QoE).

At CABSAT 2018, Newtec will demonstrate its multiservice VSAT platform Newtec Dialog®, which offers voice service quality control, guarantees High Service Availability, ensures a high number of HTTP connections and downloads, and minimizes retransmissions in the mobile network. This allows mobile operators to meet stringent Service Level Agreements (SLA) and offer numerous mobile and fixed services from one platform.

Boosting SNG through all-IP

The media landscape is also changing, with modern newsgathering applications requiring a reliable bi-directional IP multiservice communication link of sizeable bandwidth to allow those on-location to operate like they were in the studio. Newtec Dialog leverages the power of IP and offers multiple services on a single platform while providing a solution to the most common challenges faced by broadcast crews.

The platform allows the satellite link to dynamically scale to higher bandwidths when terrestrial bandwidth becomes contended, while Newtec’s Mx-DMA® technology combines MF-TDMA’s flexibility with SCPC’s efficiency, avoiding satellite link outages, packet loss and space segment fragmentation.

Deliver Tomorrow’s Television Today

The higher bitrates required to deliver 4K and UHD TV mean increased efficiency gains will be crucial as service providers look to make the most of their current equipment. Channel Bonding is one method of optimization, using DVB-S2X to split a transport stream into two or three parts over the satellite and recomposing it on the receive side, combining multiple carriers into one large enough to handle the rigors of UHD transmission.

With the MCX7000 Multi-Carrier Satellite Gateway supporting DVB-S2X and Channel Bonding, Newtec’s equipment enables efficient video distribution of UHDTV.

Next-generation Technology for Next-generation Satellites

Release 2.1 of Newtec Dialog delivers high throughput, high density and carrier grade solutions to ensure flexibility, scalability and efficiency. The platform’s latest upgrades – including Newtec Dialog XIF hub and MDM2210 and MDM3310 IP Satellite Modems – are geared towards the multiservice era, allowing customers to combine the most appropriate modems with the most efficient return technologies to address a wide range of applications within a single platform.
