Friday, May 4th, 2012 - Pactel International
Pactel International has deployed a new Perth hub to support growing demands for services in the Indian Ocean Region. The new carrier-grade platform runs on the Intelsat IS-904 satellite to provide extended coverage into the African and Middle-Eastern regions.

Through the new Perth-based hub, Pactel International can offer its customers large-scale links into a region which is experiencing very high demand for satellite communications.

Initially, Pactel will provide deployment services into the Middle East, with plans to expand into the African market.

The platform is based on Newtec’s DVB-S2 hub technology. The Newtec EL501 IP Satellite Hub combines new modulation techniques with IP shaping and satellite segment bandwidth management for DVB-S2 star networks. The Hub incorporates the proven FlexACM® technology which fully automatically optimises the satellite link. The hub can be combined with other Newtec technologies for e.g. traffic acceleration, Clean Channel Technology™ and Bandwidth Cancellation for further bandwidth optimisation.

Richard Walshe, Newtec's BDM for Nth Asia/Pacific says, "I want to thank Pactel for their on-going support. It is very rewarding, both personally and professionally, to be involved with such an energetic and innovative team as they continue to expand their network. Newtec's purpose is to provide our customers with the best and latest technological solutions in order to realise their business objectives (such as reduced opex, expanding market reach and happy customers) - I think our latest deal covers all this very well".

“At Pactel international, it is our corporate mission to expand and evolve together with our customers and suppliers. By deploying this new revolutionary platform, we are able to further optimize bandwidth and pass the savings onto our customers, whilst still maintaining the highest quality in a market where demand for bandwidth is high”, said Andrew Taylor, CEO Pactel international.
