NEWTEC’S FLEXACM® SET TO TAKE CENTRE STAGE AT SATELLITE2011
Company will showcase technology that promotes end-to-end efficiency
WASHINGTON D.C., and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 8 March 2011. Newtec, a global industry leader shaping the future of satellite communications, will showcase its revolutionary, proven FlexACM® at the SATELLITE2011 show in Washington from 14-17 March. Newtec’s FlexACM promotes end-to-end efficiency and is powered by new advanced technologies.
FlexACM enables satellite service providers and teleport operators to upgrade their legacy networks and the resulting bandwidth savings give operators the opportunity to either increase revenues by increasing their customer base, or reduce Operational Expenditure (OPEX) costs and increase the profitability of their business.
Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec, said: “At a time when budgets are being slashed and competition is high, satellite service providers are facing pressing challenges that they must address in order to be successful. Satellite services have become less competitive in comparison with terrestrial services in regions where those are already present. Therefore satellite service providers need to differentiate themselves.” He continued: “Furthermore, they need to be profitable and OPEX must be kept at a minimum. Service providers must ensure that they can do more business with the same satellite capacity. They are looking for efficiency.”
Newtec has responded to these challenges in an innovative way by creating FlexACM. Newtec’s award-winning FlexACM solution is an advanced technology that provides auto-optimisation of satellite capacity through a one-stop, end-to-end solution for IP backbone and IP trunking networks. The solution utilises advanced technologies – ACM (Adaptive Coding Modulation), NoDE (Noise & Distortion Eliminator), Cross-Layer-Optimization and ThiMM (Thin Margin Manager). All can be used individually to optimize the satellite link. However, when combined, they further enable the user to get the very most out of the bandwidth available to them, doubling on average the throughput, pushing down costs and pushing up profitability.
Koen Willems, product marketing director at Newtec stated: “As a market trend, Newtec has identified the convergence of telecom, broadcast, government and trunking services towards IP. Newtec’s FlexACM solution encapsulates all these market requirements for high and medium speed trunking networks over satellite. Moreover FlexACM has been implemented on multiple satellite links towards rain fade sensitive areas, on inclined orbit satellites and in satellite networks driving for optimal efficiency.”
Willems added: “Additionally, Newtec brings fixed rates to ACM. We address the service providers point-to-multipoint configurations by providing constant throughput at optimal availability in the most efficient way. End-to-End.”
