Indonesia’s Rural Population Gets Internet Access With Newtec Satellite technology

Thanks to a grant from Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT), schoolchildren in Asmat, Papua now have access to reliable high-speed broadband. Local systems integrator Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN) selected Newtec’s Dialog platform to deliver Internet access to the underserved rural population and surrounding areas.

As part of the Newtec Dialog platform, PSN is using a 4IF Hub module and hundreds of MDM3100 Satellite Modems (featuring Newtec’s Mx-DMAreturn link technology) to provide services using C-band transponders. The multiservice platform will be used by PSN to deliver satellite Internet access to schools, government offices and Puskesmas (community health clinics) as part of the universal service obligation for MCIT –

PSN said it evaluated various options based on SCPC and MF-TDMA technologies and concluded that the Newtec Dialog platform provides the best fit and total cost of ownership—based on the high throughput VSAT capabilities and Newtec’s Mx-DMA technology, which delivers the efficiency of SCPC with the dynamic bandwidth allocation capability of MF-TDMA.

Schoolchildren in Papua now have access to reliable high-speed broadband thanks to the newly installed Newtec equipment.

“Newtec Dialog provides us with the ability to deliver efficient and flexible Internet connectivity especially for high-speed services within a single platform,” said Adi Rahman Adiwoso, CEO at PSN. “This access will make such a huge difference to the lives of those in rural areas of Indonesia, where more traditional means of connectivity are unreliable or non-existent."

As a multiservice platform, Newtec Dialog enables tailored services and guarantees optimal modulation, bandwidth allocation, service availability, reliable automation of link setups and flexible workflow support, whether it is being used to provide broadcast, consumer broadband, cellular backhaul or mobility services.
