Newtec to supply its multiservice VSAT platform to provide fast, reliable and
cost-effective connectivity via satellite to Com & Com’s customers in Myanmar
YANGON, Myanmar, and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 31 May 2016. Newtec – a
specialist in designing, developing and manufacturing equipment and
technologies for satellite communications – today announced its Newtec
Dialog® platform has been selected to facilitate the launch of C-band
enterprise services for Com & Com, a joint venture between the service
provider Terabit and Newtec’s certified business partner OSB.
With network congestion in the Burmese cities and optical fiber backbones
mostly restricted to the center of the country, satellite gives Com & Com a
fast way to provide high-quality service connectivity in both cities and
hard-to-reach areas in Myanmar.
Newtec will supply Com & Com with a highly scalable 4IF Newtec Dialog Hub,
supporting MF-TDMA as well as Mx-DMA® return link technology, and hundreds of
Newtec MDM2200 and MDM3100 Satellite Modems.
The platform will provide fast and cost-effective connectivity to the
country. The C-band service will initially serve corporates, SMEs and banks.
Com & Com will later expand the service to Ku-band and consumer broadband.
Com & Com’s Managing Director Ms Theingi Lin said: “In Myanmar – where
Internet and television penetration is very low – satellite communication is
the most cost-effective and fastest way to bridge the digital divide. The
combination of two return technologies, including MF-TDMA and Newtec’s own
Mx-DMA, the sophisticated Quality of Service management and the high service
availability were key factors for us when choosing a partner for this
OSB’s CEO Mr Nguyen Hong Son, agreed and added: “We are confident the
efficiency and scalability of the platform will prove extremely beneficial.”
As a multiservice platform, Newtec Dialog enables tailored services and
guarantees optimal modulation, bandwidth allocation and service availability,
whether it is being used to provide enterprise, consumer broadband, cellular
backhaul or mobility services.
It features Newtec’s return link technology Mx-DMA, which delivers the
efficiency of SCPC with the dynamic bandwidth allocation of MF-TDMA, making
Com & Com’s services more bandwidth efficient and enabling services to run
more reliably than before.
Within two years, the parties expect to provide several hundred more VSAT
Mario Querner, Newtec’s VP Asia, added: “We are proud to have been able to
enter the Burmese market with Com & Com. Our multiservice Newtec Dialog
platform, our unique Mx-DMA technology and the relationship with our partner
OSB have been a key part of this success and we are confident we will expand
this further in the future.”
