February 22, 2018 – Newtec, a specialist in designing, developing and manufacturing equipment and technologies for satellite communications, announced its technology is being deployed by Orbith, a wholesale provider of high-speed Internet services. Buenos Aires-based Orbith is building a new VSAT network connecting 20,000 sites to provide consumer and business connectivity to the Buenos Aires province and surroundings. In order to accommodate a maximal subscriber number over one satellite transponder, Orbith wanted a technology provider that offers the highest efficiency in Ka-band. Orbith selected Newtec to guarantee this throughput optimization using the Newtec Dialog® VSAT platform, including different application modems that support single carrier operation of up to 500 MHz and the latest satellite transmission standard, DVB-S2X, to maximize space segment usage. This marks the first time the Satcom industry has seen a single 450 MHz carrier over a wideband transponder for commercial use.
