Newtec is extending its partnership with global satellite communications and telecommunications specialist Vizada Networks to increase the delivery of internet protocol (IP) sharing—known as “trunking”—via satellite, the company says in a written statement.
The system will be based on the state-of-the-art Newtec Elevation product family of professional equipment, specifically designed to optimize the efficiency and performance of IP applications over satellite, Newtec says.
Vizada Networks currently provides satellite IP services to remote sites around the globe with its JanUX platform. JanUX is currently deployed in Version 5 to hundreds of active remote sites, and Vizada Networks has been providing its services to telecom carriers, Internet service providers (ISP), multinational companies, as well as government, military and humanitarian aid organizations.
Under the partnership agreement, Newtec and Vizada Networks will collaborate on the development of the next generation of JanUX, incorporating Newtec’s Elevation EL940 IP satellite receiver and EL170 IP modulator along with other technologies developed by Newtec and Vizada Networks. The system produced is expected to allow greater efficiency and availability, as well as offer centralized management, monitoring and surveillance. It will also provide a flexible platform for further integration of value-added services to support customer requirements.
The Elevation EL940 is a high-performance receiver designed for the reception of IP traffic transmitted over satellite in compliance with digital video broadcast (DVB)-S2 standards. The EL940 connects directly to terrestrial IP network infrastructures via a single autoswitching gigabit ethernet interface. The receiver demodulates, restores and filters the data received from the satellite at rates of up to 154 megabits optimized for applications that require a low initial investment without compromising on performance to ensure the highest service availability.
