Leading broadband satellite Internet Service Provider, Bentley Walker, has confirmed it will extend its service coverage towards Libya via its Newtec Ka-band VSAT broadband platform.
The new service, which will deliver high speed broadband connectivity to Libya, will go live on 26 September and will provide broadband Internet access across the country via a Newtec IP Broadband HUB (Sat3Play) installed at Avanti’s gateway at Makarios Teleport in Cyprus.
The new service will make use of Avanti’s Hylas 2 Ka-band capacity which was launched in August last year.
“The Newtec VSAT terminals based on the MDM2200 IP Satellite Modems have been designed for both consumers as well as for SME and B2B,” said Bentley Walker in a press statement announcing the move.
“They are 2-way, high throughput terminals supporting a wide range of IP-based services like Internet access and VoIP, as well as multicast based services. Newtec’s modems are designed to operate with the latest generation of high throughput Ka-band satellites, enabling much higher throughput than has previously been possible.”
Newtec has already delivered several VSAT hubs to Avanti currently being operated from Avanti’s teleport in Cyprus, allowing service deployment towards the various Ka-band spot beams on the Hylas 2 Ka-band satellite.
