      Publicly owned telecommunications specialist Teledata is using Newtec’s Dialog multiservice platform for hundreds of mobile backhaul (2G, 3G) and banking application sites across Mozambique. The Newtec Dialog platform, with a HUB 4IF Hub Module at its core, will power Teledata’s cellular backhaul network using Newtec Dialog modems.

      The platform is also connecting hundreds of ATMs using Newtec’s MDM2500 IP Satellite Modem at the remote sites, as well as providing back-up connectivity to improve higher reliability for the regional bank branches.

      “Upgrading our networks to a single multiservice platform using Newtec Dialog enables us to simplify our day-to-day operations and to deliver reliable connectivity to a large number of sites across Mozambique,” said Xavier de Jesus Maria, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Teledata. “The scalability of the platform means it can meet our needs both now and in the future, allowing us to operate flexibly and have the potential to offer improved and additional services for our customers.”

      Teledata’s services powered by the Newtec Dialog platform will use two spot beams on the Intelsat Epic 33e Ku-band High Throughput Satellite (HTS).

      As well as Time-division Multiple Access (TDMA) and Single Channel Per Carrier

      (SCPC), Newtec Dialog features the return link technology Mx-DMA, which delivers the efficiency of SCPC with the dynamic bandwidth allocation of TDMA. This means that bandwidth can be changed and adapted on-demand, giving more control and increased efficiency while making it easy to shift capacity to each site as required. According to Newtec, this is especially useful for HTS-powered services.
