DEAR BUSINESS PARTNER,
Welcome to Newtec News – your exclusive insight into the satellite industry and
our latest innovations as we respond to worldwide trends and rising consumer demand
that are ushering in a new era of connectivity.
Connectivity for the Masses
Looking to the Future
Newtec, along with other leading players, is also playing an important role to ensure operators and service providers can costeffectively and efficiently improve broadband quality.
Throughout this newsletter you will read about new disruptive technologies enhancing space segment efficiency and bringing new capabilities to networks. These emerging phenomena will play an important role in our future which will see connectivity defy current limitations.
A New Chapter
Much like the Satcom industry, we are also evolving. ST Technologies Engineering Ltd has entered into a conditional share purchase agreement to acquire a 100% ownership in Newtec Group.
Rapid industry developments have led ST Engineering to identify synergies between itself and Newtec. Through the proposed acquisition of Newtec, ST Engineering will add intellectual property, products and market access. ST Engineering will continue to invest in Newtec in Belgium to position it to be the Group’s European center for the Satcom business. The complementary and synergistic effect of this proposed acquisition will enable ST Engineering to meet demand across the full spectrum of the Satcom market.
Newtec is pleased that our two companies can now move forward together, using our innovation to address our changing world of connectivity.
Throughout this change, dependable, high-performance and future-proof technology remains key – and I am proud of Newtec’s strong standing here. This has just been highlighted again by the Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI) which appointed me as President of the Board of Trustees. This was a personal honor, but also one which very much reflects the achievements of the whole of Newtec.
Thomas Van den Driessche, CEO of Newtec
As its ambitious broadband connectivity targets show, Bolivia recognizes the importance of high-speed connectivity – but with an uncertain geographical landscape and historically limited broadband access, a versatile, cost-effective and efficient means to improve internet connectivity is needed.
The way we consume content is evolving, and one of the principal changes is the fact that we want to view what we want, whenever and wherever we want. This is having a huge effect on the popularity of streaming and on-demand services. So where does satellite fit into this new broadcasting landscape?
As the digital revolution steps up a gear, the reliance on broadband remains constant. The need for ‘always on’ connectivity is not only getting more pronounced, but it is also spreading to every corner of the world, with new applications emerging to entice new users.
The contributions to innovations that the satellite community brings evolve around 5G, the upcoming LEO, MEO, HEO and GEO HTS constellations and agile, efficient and resilient communications to serve the needs of the dispersed and increasingly mobile military and humanitarian end-user to provide connectivity anytime, anywhere.
As India’s largest Direct-to-Home (DTH) service provider and the world’s largest single-country DTH company, DishTV supplies its traditional and multiscreen services to more than 23 million subscribers across India. With consumer demand growing, it is upgrading its network to enable next-generation viewing
Telesat’s testing of the Ka-band payload is ongoing and Newtec’s modems are the first to have been successfully tested over-the-air on Telesat’s inaugural LEO satellite, with the technology demonstrating different service scenarios.
Only by marrying innovation in the sky with ongoing innovation on the ground will the satellite industry optimize the performance and efficiencies for its users. Read our blog by Mark Lee, Newtec's Regional Sales Director, Asia to find out more.
