Arabsat inks partnership deal with Newtec

AMSTERDAM, September 10, 2016

Arab Satellite Communications Organization (Arabsat) said it has signed a new partnership deal with Newtec, a specialist in satellite communication equipment manufacturing, to boost its direct-to-home (DTH) services.

The company announced the expansion of its Newtec partnership at the ongoing IBC 2016, a major  electronic media and entertainment industry event being held in Amsterdam, thus enabling optimized solutions for broadcast and telecom customers.

As per the new contract, the Belgium-based Newtec will provide Arabsat with its Newtec Dialog multiservice platform to enhance the operator’s direct-to-home (DTH) services, as well as its offerings in government and telecom markets.

Newtec Dialog is a multiservice platform which enables tailored services and guarantees optimal modulation and bandwidth allocation, whether it is being used to provide enterprise, consumer broadband, cellular backhaul or mobility services.

It features three return technologies – MF-TDMA, SCPC and Newtec’s unique Mx-DMA – ensuring maximum bandwidth efficiency and return on investment.

Newtec’s solution for Arabsat also incorporates its pre-distortion technology Equalink, which can provide an additional 15 per cent of data traffic in the same satellite capacity.

“We are pleased to be able to expand our collaboration with Newtec,” said Arabsat’s CEO Khalid Balkheyour.

“As well as offering very efficient technology, the pre-sales support and training and certification program Newtec provides means the company was the perfect choice of partner for upcoming projects,” he stated.

The training and certification delivered by Newtec is professionally run by experienced engineers, familiar with the challenges Arabsat and its customers face and includes a comprehensive online examination program and online renewals.

The certification is recognized globally and will ensure Arabsat gets the most out of the Newtec equipment installed, added Balkheyour.

Newtec chief executive Serge Van Herck said: "As a leading satellite operator, proven solutions which will enable optimised services for its customers are incredibly important for Arabsat and we are delighted to have been able to meet the requirements for Arabsat’s next-generation services."

"Additionally, taking part in our training and certification program means an even better service will be provided to Arabsat’s end-customers, while the operator will benefit from increased efficiency and effectiveness of operations," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
