What do we mean by trunking and what are the challenges in this market?

Satellite trunking networks provide local and mobile networks with access to the internet backbone or to the mobile core.

Main challenges:
  • Constant scrutinizing of OPEX due to a highly competitive market with razor-thin margins
  • Demands for new technical solutions

What is Newtec’s value proposition for the trunking market?

Newtec's trunking solutions are based on the award-winning MDM6000, leveraging DVB-S2, DVB-S2X and S2 Extensions. The MDM6000 combines a set of innovative technologies which help provide exceptional service quality at the lowest possible cost.

The MDM6000 can be deployed in single SCPC links, but also in a hub-and star network with the Hub6000. Additionally, Newtec Dialog can also offer trunking and fiber restoral capability, please check the Newtec Dialog page.

Which Newtec technologies are leveraged and for what benefits? (in the MDM6000)


Optimal service availability in fading (Inclined Orbit, Ku-, Ka- and X-band) or environmental (rain, dust) conditions, or where there is interference (between two adjacent satellites). 

Committed Information Rates (CIR) in highly-adaptive satellite bandwidth environments for services such as video, VoIP or for customers demanding a fixed throughput at all times.


Service priorities and Quality of Service policies auto-adapted on-the-fly depending on bandwidth availability.

Bandwidth Cancellation

Unsurpassed performance with the lowest possible residual cancellation noise, resulting in the highest possible spectral efficiency.
