IDMI Adds to List of International Groups Choosing Newtec's FlexACM®

(PresseBox) (Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, ) Newtec announces today that Beirutheadquartered IDMI has chosen Newtec's unique award winning FlexACM® technology to boost capacity and availability on key satellite IP trunking links between Greece and ten customer sites in the Middle East.

IDMI is a specialist of satellite and wireless solutions and services across the Middle East, East and South Asia, Europe and Africa. FlexACM® will optimise IDMI's return on investment (ROI) by increasing the bandwidth efficiency of the satellite transmission on average and guaranteeing the highest service availability for its customers. This is the latest major international success for the product, which gives Newtec customers around the world the opportunity for increased output, lowered operational expenses, improved Quality of Service (QoS) and the capability to use new resources such as Kuband/Kaband.

"Newtec's technology enables us to deliver reliable and stable links over satellites across the Middle East region," said Mrs Zakie Karam, CEO of IDMI.

"Our aim is always to keep on providing additional value to our customers, with the right ratio of quality and price and once again Newtec have proved to be able to meet all our expectations - showing themselves to be our correct partner for the platform.", Zakie added.

FlexACM® combines a range of cutting edge technologies for implementing Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), traffic shaping, payload compression and IP acceleration in a highly efficient way for IP trunking and IP backbone satellite links. In addition to doubling the capacity of an existing link, on average, it also guarantees 100 per cent availability of link reception, even when all other systems are down due to heavy rain fade. FlexACM® can be used in pointtopoint and pointtomultipoint systems, in one way (with terrestrial return channels) as well as two way configurations (with the return channel also over satellite). It can be used to upgrade existing satellite links without changing other elements of the transmission chain, such as the antenna or HPA.

Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec said, "IDMI has built a strong reputation for providing expertise and quality for its customers and I'm delighted that they have chosen FlexACM® for these vital links across the Middle East. With its ability to double data throughput - among other unique features - we are finding increasingly that our solution is becoming the system of choice across the international market place".
