Satellite operator, Avanti Communications has confirmed the intended installation of Newtec Sat3Play hubs in its earth stations to further extend its IP broadband service range on its satellites Hylas 1 and Hylas 2.
To support its customers with the deployment of Newtec technology, Avanti has reportedly developed a low risk and low capital investment entry route for customers wishing to remotely manage and operate their own Newtec hub infrastructure.
Avanti’s customers will be able to operate Newtec’s Sat3Play broadband systems to offer, the company claims, a true broadband experience to B2B and B2C customers in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Combining Hylas 1 and Hylas 2 Ka-band satellites with Newtec’s self installable broadband terminals, will enable, the company claims, Avanti’s customers to provide fast and easy internet at highly competitive market rates.
Matthew O’Connor, chief operating officer for Avanti, said: “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. By offering a choice of vendors to our customers, we are able to deliver the flexibility they require”.
Avanti anticipates further installation of Newtec’s Sat3Play broadband hubs over the coming months to meet the services demanded from both its existing Hylas 1 customers, as well as those wishing to use Hylas 2 capacity when it launches this year.
Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec, said, “I am very pleased with this new Ka-band co-operation agreement with Avanti. Newtec’s broadband technology has a proven track record of being highly reliable and efficient. Coupled with the multi-ISP platform support, we are providing a solution that matches the needs of Avanti’s customers. In addition, our seamlessly integrated high speed FlexACM IP trunking solution is an additional advantage of which Avanti’s customers will be able to benefit from.”
