Neda to Expand Broadband Capabilities with Isotropic Terminals
Isotropic Systems has entered into an agreement with Neda to develop self-installing, all-electronic scanning terminals to extend its Single Channel Per Carrier (SCPC) broadband capabilities across Afghanistan for enterprise, government and consumer users.
According to Isotropic Systems, its optical technology will enable terminals that meet or exceed traditional Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) performance at one-tenth the cost of current VSAT. Isotropic’s technology automatically tunes the satellite beam pointing to maintain the precise accuracy over time that is needed for Ka-band systems to optimize the efficiency of the links in the service provider’s network.
“Based on this initial success, we anticipate easily achieving an overall company backlog of 50,000 to 100,000 terminals prior to the first commercial deployments scheduled for late 2019,” said Isotropic Systems Chief Executive Officer (CEO) John Finney.
