Pan African telecoms group, Liquid Telecom, has demonstrated the benefits of innovative satellite technology to help increase bandwidth efficiency by up to 50% to mines in remote areas by providing more reliable and efficient high throughput connectivity for mining operations.
With mines typically located in remote areas where fibre is unavailable, mining organisations are reliant on legacy satellite links that can only be configured to suit one type of traffic – such as bursty or high data rates.
Mx-DMA, which is a new and innovative bandwidth allocation technology for satellite developed on the Newtec Dialog, combines the best of these qualities to offer mining customers on-demand variable bandwidth allocation and enhanced efficiencies of up to 50%.
The Newtec Dialog platform is capable of supporting throughputs as high as 75Mbps and can also be customised to withstand the harsh conditions often found at mining operations across Africa, such as heat, dust and sandstorms.
“As more mining companies pursue automation across their operations, greater focus is falling on connectivity. Newtec’s Mx-DMA technology is a unique fit for the sector, offering the reliability, scalability and flexibility required by today’s mining customers,” says Scott Mumford, Group Managing Executive, Satellite and VSAT, Liquid Telecom.
“We are pleased to see Liquid Telecom expand their VSAT service portfolio into demanding VSAT markets like mining using our innovative technologies,” says Pieter Paul Mooijman, Newtec’s Regional Sales Director Sub Saharan Africa.
“Liquid Telecom clearly demonstrates the value of the Newtec Dialog multiservice platform to address a vast range of services covering broadband, enterprise, energy and mining and any other VSAT markets.”
