Bermuda and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 2nd June 2015.

Newtec, a specialist in designing, developing and manufacturing equipment and technologies for satellite communications, today announced global satellite operator ABS has selected Newtec Dialog® to launch next generation VSAT and data services.

As a multiservice platform, Newtec Dialog guarantees optimal modulation and bandwidth allocation – whether it is being used for enterprise, consumer broadband, cellular backhaul, mobility or HTS networks.

ABS has ordered a Newtec Dialog 4IF Hub, which will be deployed at one of its regional teleport facilities in Asia. The first installation phase is expected to be completed in July 2015.

“Newtec Dialog is unique in that it enables operators to build their network and diversify their services as their business grows and the market changes,” said Newtec’s CEO Serge Van Herck. “We are pleased the needs of ABS can be satisfied with our awardwinning platform and look forward to seeing the operator enjoy the full benefits of Newtec Dialog.”

Newtec Dialog also features Newtec’s new patented return link technology called MxDMA™, or Cross-Dimensional Multiple Access. Together with HighResCoding (HRC™), it combines the best of both worlds, incorporating the best features of MF-TDMA and SCPC technologies. This enables services to run more efficiently than ever before over satellite, while still providing the option to have the platform also run in either SCPC or MF-TDMA.

Tom Choi, CEO at ABS, said: “With Newtec Dialog, we are confident that we have found a reliable solution that can be deployed quickly and cost-effectively.”
