Avanti Integrates Newtec Sat3Play Hubs into Hylas Satellite Infrastructure
[Satellite TODAY 06-19-12] U.K. satellite operator Avanti Communications has installed Newtec Sat3Play hubs in its Earth stations to extend the IP broadband service range on its Hylas 1 and Hylas 2 satellites, the company announced June 18.
Avanti said the enhancement would allow customers to remotely manage and operate their own Newtec hub infrastructure, as well as to operate Newtec’s Sat3Play broadband systems for B2B and B2C customers in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Avanti COO Matthew O’Connor said that combining Hylas 1 and Hylas 2 Ka-band satellites with Newtec’s self installable broadband terminals would enable the company’s customers to provide fast and easy Internet at highly competitive market rates.
“We are excited to offer yet another extension to our portfolio of service platforms and have engaged with the market to create an innovative commercial approach using our hosted network operator model,” O’Connor said in a statement. “By offering a choice of vendors to our customers, we are able to deliver the flexibility they require.”
