Multiservice platform selected for Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) USO project
JAKARTA, Indonesia and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 16 November 2016. Newtec – a specialist in designing, developing and manufacturing equipment and technologies for satellite communications – today announced its Newtec Dialog® platform has been selected by Indonesian satellite telecommunications service provider Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN) to deliver broadband access to underserved rural areas.
Using the Newtec Dialog platform, PSN has been supplied with a 4IF Hub module and hundreds of MDM3100 Satellite Modems featuring Mx-DMA® to provide services using C-band transponders. The multiservice platform will be used by PSN to deliver satellite Internet access to schools, government offices and Puskesmas (community health clinics) as part of the universal service obligation for MCIT – Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology.
PSN evaluated various options based on SCPC and MF-TDMA technologies and concluded that the Newtec Dialog platform provides the best fit and total cost of ownership, based on the high throughput VSAT capabilities and Newtec’s award-winning return link technology Mx-DMA, which delivers the efficiency of SCPC with the dynamic bandwidth allocation capability of MF-TDMA.
Adi Rahman Adiwoso, CEO at PSN, said: “Newtec Dialog provides us with the ability to deliver efficient and flexible Internet connectivity especially for high-speed services within a single platform. This access will make such a huge difference to the lives of those in rural areas of Indonesia, where more traditional means of connectivity are unreliable or non-existent.”
As a multiservice platform, Newtec Dialog enables tailored services and guarantees optimal modulation, bandwidth allocation, service availability, reliable automation of link setups and flexible workflow support, whether it is being used to provide broadcast, consumer broadband, cellular backhaul or mobility services.
Thomas Van den Driessche, Newtec’s CCO, added: “To have the Newtec Dialog platform selected by PSN shows its ability to provide a service that is flexible enough to fit the needs of rural broadband connectivity and scalable enough to handle a project that we know will continue to expand.”
