InSat to Use Newtec Elevation Equipment to Power New Service in Middle East and Central Asia

(PresseBox) ( St-Niklaas, )
Newtec announced today that InSat GmbH, which has been operating its own hub and related infrastructure in Saarbruecken, Germany, since 2000, has selected Newtec's equipment for a new project in the Middle East and Central Asia. This solution includes Newtec's state-of-the-art satellite Elevation modulators and demodulators for IP trunking applications over satellite in full compliance with DVB-S2 standards. The IP links use a 32 APSK modulation and coding scheme, delivering the highest efficiency available on the market today.

InSat, a Newtec customer since 2005, has seen tremendous growth over recent years, increasing their sales eightfold. For this new project, Newtec was again the first choice for the new Internet backbone installation in the Middle East and Central Asia. InSat is implementing this project with a data throughput of nearly 350 Mbps using only three 36 MHz satellite transponders. This high throughput is achieved by combining the high efficiency of the 32 APSK modulation with the high processing speed of the IP interfaces of the Newtec equipment.

Valentin Gurinovich, CEO of InSat, underlines: "Newtec's unique technology allows InSat to lower the price while increasing the reliability and quality of the service to the customer. Newtec's equipment helps us to use transponder capacity in a very efficient way. In these times of high transponder costs this is an important advantage, especially when you are offering services for economically emerging regions with less purchasing power in relation to the percentage of the population wanting to get connected to the Internet."

Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec said, "By using our equipment for distribution to their customers, InSat provides first rate services in developing regions as well as showcasing our high-performance equipment to their customers. Newtec is pleased that InSat selected the Newtec Solution for their new project. It confirms the efficiency of our products and we are looking forward to continuing our successful partnership in the future."
