      [Via Satellite 09-12-2016] Arab Satellite Communications Organization (Arabsat) and Newtec have announced an expansion of their partnership, enabling optimized solutions for broadcast and telecom customers. Signed during IBC 2016, the new contract will see Newtec provide Arabsat with its Newtec Dialog multiservice platform to enhance the operator’s Direct-to-Home (DTH) services, as well as its offerings in government and telecom markets.

      Newtec Dialog is a multiservice platform, which enables tailored services and guarantees optimal modulation and bandwidth allocation, whether it is being used to provide enterprise, consumer broadband, cellular backhaul or mobility services, according to the company. It features three return technologies — MF-TDMA, SCPC and Newtec’s Mx-DMA — ensuring maximum bandwidth efficiency and return on investment. Newtec’s solution for Arabsat also incorporates its pre-distortion technology Equalink, which the company states can provide an additional 15 percent of data traffic in the same satellite capacity.
