Connectivity for the Masses

As we welcome this new age, there are two fundamentals we must consider: How can we bring consistent, high-speed broadband to those that remain unconnected, no matter how remote their locations, and how can we deliver faster, higher-quality, and more reliable connectivity to those who already have access? 
 
There is no doubt the satellite industry is perfectly positioned for the former. The technology’s ability to cost-effectively defy geographical constraints makes it timeless – a fact which is underlined in this newsletter with recent examples which showcase how we are bridging the digital divide.
 

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.

World-Class Excellence

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.

Best regards,

Thomas
