Nynex Chooses Newtec FlexACM Technology

News Image
Leading VSAT system integrator Nynex has installed Newtec's FlexACM technology to provide new coverage for the Middle East and Central Asia region.
Nynex's new services are a replacement for costly and unreliable existing fibre connections to the area. By using Newtec's FlexACM technology with inclined orbit satellites, Nynex is able to deliver robust connectivity at a significantly lower cost with unparalleled availability.
Using a combination of Newtec's Elevation ACM Shaper and Encapsulators (EL860), Elevation IP Satellite Modulators (EL170) and Elevation IP Satellite Modems (EL470), Nynex is running three transponders on Etelsat W48, 48 degrees east to deliver Internet trunking for high-speed Internet in Iraq and Afghanistan via Wimax and 3G networks. The Newtec equipment is installed at the IABG teleport in Ottobrunn, Germany, and in remote locations in the Middle East.
Nynex's service provides connectivity to local civilian and military users at competitive rates, and with previously unattainable service availability.
Andreas Buxbaum, Managing Director, Nynex, said: "By combining Nynex's Monitoring and Control System, the advantage of an inclined satellite and the high performance of Newtec's Elevation technology with the robustness of Newtec's FlexACM solution, we can now easily deliver 100Mbit rates, much better service availability and a more appropriate solution to our customers in the region. We are already working on an extension of this service for Africa as an alternative solution to the very expensive and unreliable fibre optics Internet backbone there."
Newtec's award-winning FlexACM combines a range of cutting-edge technologies for implementing Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM), traffic shaping, payload compression and IP acceleration in a highly efficient way.
The integrated unique patent-pending Noise and Distortion Estimator (NoDE) provides accurate monitoring of the satellite link quality and enables optimum usage of satellite transponders. In addition to an average doubling of the capacity of an existing link, FlexACM guarantees the highest level of link availability even during bad weather conditions, making it ideal to use on Ku-band and Ka-band links. Using FlexACM on inclined satellites enables Nynex to use the satellite capacity to its maximum at all times as FlexACM automatically adapts the link parameters to the available satellite power level.
Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec, said: "With this installation, Nynex has made a significant improvement to the Internet service available in the region. The FlexACM technology is a key factor in facilitating the expansion of reliable connectivity at cost-effective rates, particularly in conditions that are subject to heavy rain attenuation or other regular link degradations."
Newtec's Elevation IP modems are designed for the efficient transmission of IP over satellite at rates from 512 Kbps to 160 Mbps in full compliance with DVB-S2 standard (including 16APSK and 32APSK), and support a wide range of encapsulation protocols, such as MPE, ULE, GSE and XPE. They can be used in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint architecture in one-way configurations with terrestrial return channels or two-way configurations with return channel over satellite.
FlexACM is available across Newtec's Elevation product family, which consists of DVB-S2 IP satellite modulators, demodulators, modems and satellite IP appliances.
