Newtec's Ka-Band Hub Infrastructure in Cyprus Completes On-site Tests Successfully

Newtec’s (News - Alert) Ka-band hub infrastructure in Cyprus underwent a series of test conducted jointly by Avanti Communications, InSat and Newtec. Along with this, Managed Service Provider (MSP) InSat announced that the first Afghan ISPs have started testing their service.

Newtec has been exclusive technology partner for all InSat services, providing two-way satellite broadband technology. To support its customers with the deployment of Newtec technology, Avanti has developed a low risk and low capital investment entry route for customers wishing to remotely manage and operate their own Newtec hub infrastructure, according to a source.

Matthew O'Connor, COO for Avanti, said that their company would like to welcome InSat as one of their newest HYLAS 2 partners and congratulate Newtec on completing a speedy installation of its first Ka-band hub, in just three days. HYLAS 2 was launched on August 2nd 2012 from Avanti and it offers extended coverage to Africa, Caucasia and the Middle East.

InSat has been using Newtec’s Broadband platform to provide IP access services for consumers and business under InSat’s brand name Hi-Stream to Afghan telecom providers. Hi-Stream has been helping people connect their computer to the Internet via a high-speed connection with the new HYLAS 2 Ka band satellite, delivering fast Internet access straight to their home.

Speaking on this occasion, InSat CEO, Valentine Gurinovich said: “On site in Afghanistan we have installed control stations and some customer terminals at Afghan Internet service providers to run tests of our broadband satellite Internet access Hi-Stream designed especially for regions like Afghanistan and other emerging countries. I announced the launch at CABSAT in March 2012. The results are very impressive and confirm our choice in favour of Avanti’s Ka-Band satellite HYLAS 2 and Newtec’s Sat3Play technology.”
