HeliosNet Selects Newtec To Offer B2C And B2B VSAT Services Over Eastern Russia

Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) Express-AM5 satellite will be used to enable high speed and competitive broadband connectivity across Eastern Russia

MOSCOW, Russia and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, May 19 2014 Satellite communications specialist Newtec has been selected by HeliosNet® to power their new B2B and B2C VSAT broadband service over Eastern Russia.

The new HeliosNet service will be offered using RSCC's new Express-AM5 satellite, launched in December 2013. Newtec will install a broadband system, including its satellite broadband hub and thousands of terminals (MDM2200 and MDM3100 IP satellite modems), enabling reliable and easy-to-install low and high speed B2C and B2B services.

The Newtec broadband hub will be installed in Irkutsk, Eastern Siberia region of Russia, and will upgrade HeliosNet's current broadband infrastructure.

Alexey Sergeev, General Director of HeliosNet, said: "We are delighted to partner with Newtec which has a proven track record in reliability and customer service. We selected Newtec's VSAT technology for our new satellite broadband service after being impressed by the ease of use, the bandwidth efficiency and the price attractiveness of the end-user terminals. This means we can provide an attractive service pricing without jeopardizing the quality."

In 2012 Newtec started shipping its latest high-speed VSAT broadband technology. This new technology has already been successfully implemented by an increasing number of Tier 1 satellite and VSAT service providers worldwide. HeliosNet has worked in partnership with one of those providers before and was able to draw on previous experience to understand the advantages and capabilities of Newtec's VSAT technology.

While the HeliosNet service will initially utilize Ku-band, the terminals can be easily upgraded later to operate in Ka-band by a simple change of Newtec's interactive LNB and with no hardware adaptation to the satellite modem or the antenna.

Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec, said: "We are proud that we can help HeliosNet offer market leading satellite broadband services at a very competitive price point both for the professional and the consumer markets. As broadband capacity becomes available over a wider geographic area the Russian VSAT broadband market is experiencing a real boost and we are pleased to be playing a key part in that."
