Newtec Supports Expansion of Nigerian Ka Broadband Services

Commercial and consumer satellite services provider NigcomSat has expanded its enterprise, government and consumer Ka-band broadband services in Nigeria with the installation of satellite communications equipment from Newtec.

A long time Newtec customer, NigcomSat—which was founded in 2006 by the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Communication Technology—is now upgrading its existing Newtec Dialog VSAT platform by deploying a second hub and thousands of Newtec’s MDM2210 IP Satellite Modems and MDM2510 IP Satellite Modems.

Abimbola Alale, Managing Director and Chief Executive of NigcomSat said that the ability to run multiple services over Newtec Dialog was a key part of its latest purchase decision. It means they can install a variety of modems and select the best one depending on the application being addressed—and all via a single platform.

“Along with the optimal efficiency achieved via Newtec’s built-in technologies, this will allow us to quickly and cost-effectively expand our portfolio to meet the rising demand we are currently seeing across Nigeria,” Alale said.”

Content Oasis Ltd., Newtec’s local certified business partner, will serve as systems integrator, maintaining the Newtec Dialog platform and the modems installed for NigcomSat.

As a multiservice VSAT platform, Newtec Dialog enables operators to build and adapt satellite-based networking infrastructures according to specific needs. With Newtec’s modems, a choice of three return technologies is provided, including MF-TDMA, SCPC and Newtec’s unique, dynamic Mx‑DMA, combining the best qualities of both to provide dynamic bandwidth allocation with a high level of efficiency.
