BBC News selects Newtec Dialog for IP connectivity over satellite

Thursday 14 September 2017 | 09:51 CET | News

Newtec has announced that its Newtec Dialog platform is being used by BBC News for IP connectivity over satellite. Newtec Dialog will allow the BBC's news team to deploy mobile service capable of transmitting video, voice, files and general broadband services. A single multiservice communication link will be deployed, using all-IP technology.

The Newtec Dialog platform has the return link technology Mx-DMA (Cross-Dimensional Multiple Access), which delivers the efficiency of SCPC (single channel per carrier) with the bandwidth allocation of MF-TDMA (multi-frequency time-division multiple access). This allows BBC News to manage bandwidth, while avoiding the fragmentation of space segment.

Newtec Dialog allows the user to manage QoS in the VSAT forward and return links with the same flexibility as it can with terrestrial networks and provide service level agreement guarantees for different services, in difficult weather and operational conditions.

The remote terminals will be equipped with the MDM3300 Satellite Modem, providing a lightweight, compact and cost-effective service that allows integration into ruggedised enclosures, with bitrates in the return link that can reach 21 Mbps multicast. The design and installation for the BBC is being coordinated by engineers from the BBC, Newtec and its certified UK business partner Sematron.
