Orbith Connects Rural Argentina with Newtec VSAT Platform
Orbith, a wholesale provider of internet services, is deploying Newtec technology to expand connectivity in rural parts of Argentina. Based in Buenos Aires, Orbith is building a new Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) network connecting 20,000 sites to provide consumer and business connectivity to the Buenos Aires province and surroundings.
In order to accommodate a maximal subscriber number over one satellite transponder, Orbith wanted a technology provider that offered high efficiency in Ka-band. The company selected Newtec to guarantee this throughput optimization using the Newtec Dialog VSAT platform, including different application modems that support single carrier operation of up to 500 MHz and DVB-S2X to maximize space segment usage.
Operating via the Newtec Dialog XIF HUB, Orbith is deploying two types of Newtec’s remote terminals, which consist of a modem and an outdoor unit set. Orbith is using the Newtec MDM2210 IP satellite modems for its broadband customers, including consumer and Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) networks. This modem features an embedded Wi-Fi-router, allowing end-users to add numerous devices to the same connection, and delivers throughputs of more than 100 Mbps.
