However you want it, wherever you need it: enabling seamless satellite connectivity for a range of markets


As end-users, demands continue to evolve, so too do the needs of today’s network providers. For satellite communications equipment solution developers and manufacturers, this means they have to do everything in their power to ensure that they remain at the forefront of trends in a range of segments, from maritime to mobile to disaster recovery.

As network providers’ operations become increasingly complex and they continue to expand into new fields, they require a solutions partner which will enable them to not just deliver high-speed, reliable satellite connectivity, but to do so for a vast range of markets. What’s more, they must be able to meet the specific connectivity requirements of each individual market. In response to this demand, we have teamed up with satellite communications solution provider Paradigm to create an all-in-one solution, which can empower satellite providers to deliver high-speed satellite connectivity to a range of markets, via a single platform.

Responding to Demands

As the first company to host the Newtec Dialog® SMB3310 high-throughput modem board, Paradigm has successfully embedded the modem into its Paradigm Interface Module® (PIM) terminal controller. Combining the efficiency and flexibility of the Newtec Dialog platform with the versatility and reliability of the PIM, the joint solution is designed to provide a common terminal interface for fixed and quick deploy terminals operating on all major satellite networks. Through the PIM, Newtec’s SMB3310 can interoperate with OTP and OTM satcom terminals for a range of different markets, including Government, Defense, Broadcast and Mobility. Thanks to its easy-to-use and seamless interworking with compliant antennas, the PIM has a proven track record in integrating a range of terminals.

It Takes Two 

The PIM’s long track record has been combined with the best efficiencies of the Newtec Dialog platform. Newtec Dialog is a single-service and multiservice VSAT platform that allows operators and service providers to build and adapt their infrastructure and satellite networking according to business or missions at hand. Based on the cornerstones of flexibility, scalability and efficiency, the Newtec Dialog platform gives the operator the power to offer a variety of services on a single platform. The Newtec Dialog VSAT platform provides robust and resilient links which are both efficient and affordable thanks to the wideband DVB-S2X forward and the governmentgrade frequency hopping waveform Newtec Mx-DMA®, which includes features such as spread spectrum and randomization of carriers. The combination of the two instantly gives customers access to the Newtec Dialog VSAT platform via Paradigm’s range of high-performance multiband terminals including the lightweight, rugged and ultra-portable SWARM, the HORNET flyaway terminal, the Communications on the Move (COTM) solution MANTA, and the cost-effective CONNECT100T tripod terminal.

The End Result

By increasing the range of PIM-based terminals available to network providers, Newtec Dialog users will be able to rollout a multitude of high-throughput, fast-deploy applications on their Newtec Dialog platform. This will allow them to not only achieve the highest efficiency over satellite, wherever they may be, it will enable them to operate a vast scale of markets. Thanks to the flexibility of the solution, tailored services can be delivered to a range of customers, as well as for range of applications from cellular backhauling, disaster recovery to mobile Internet access, right through to news gathering and video/audio streaming – providing satellite providers with the confidence to expand their services, which will ultimately, increase their business growth.

Ulf Sandberg, Managing Director at Paradigm“As an established provider of end-to-end solutions to address the evolving requirements of network providers, we are always looking to form new partnerships with other industry leaders. Newtec’s new modem board is not only innovative, but flexible enough to provide tailored services to our customers, powering a range of applications from mobile Internet access, cellular backhauling and disaster recovery right through to news gathering and video/audio streaming.”
