In January 2012, Pactel International in conjunction with the local service provider, Remington Communications successfully launched a new Shiron DVB-S2 ACM system hub in Port Moresby. The new hub now provides domestic corporate communication services to PNG to allow direct connectivity between Port Moresby and remote provinces of the country.

The 3-year contract involves Pactel installing, commissioning and operating the new high speed satellite transmission platform. The new platform runs on the recently launched IS-18 satellite and can provide both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint satellite links.

“We commend Pactel for the work done throughout the installation process, the support and quality of work on site. We are looking forward to further enhancing the quality of service for our customers on our new IS-18 platform”, said Adam Dwyer, General Manager, Remington Communications.

“Pactel International has built a strong reputation in PNG for providing expertise and quality for our customers,” said Andrew Taylor, CEO of Pactel International. “We are proud to have supplied infrastructure that plays such an important role in delivering reliable communications to any remote location of the country.”
