By | May 6, 2004

      Officials from New Skies N.V. [NSK] and KMS/FalconStream today introduced a new two-way satellite IP hub for the Middle East, which will access New Skies’ NSS-6 satellite. That spacecraft will allow for expanded and more advanced broadband Internet access for customers throughout the Middle East, India and North Africa. The hub, provided by Australian-based NewSat, will use DVB-RCS technology and NSS-6’s high-powered Ku-band capacity to enable high-speed two-way IP transmissions between customer sites and the hub at speeds as fast as 1.15 Mbps on the uplink and 60 Mbps down, officials said.
