PRLog - Oct. 8, 2012 - Despite recent progress in Australia’s National Broadband Project, many regions in the island-continent remain beyond the access of the traditional terrestrial fibre networks. Some remote regions and rural communities are still cut-off from fixed-services, and many still rely on slow DSL connections.
NewSat Ltd, however, is looking to alleviate the remote connectivity issues through its internet from satellite services. Many businesses with remote operating sites - like the mining, oil and gas, and construction sectors - grapple in finding stable Internet communications in the great outback. The independent satellite communications specialist has been offering satellite broadband technology over the years but with the recent improvements in its facilities, as well as the progress of its Ka band satellite program, has fortified the service as the preferred solution in remote regions, and not just the last resort.
Improvements in VSAT technology has primarily been driven with the ongoing construction of the Jabiru 1 - a powerful Ka band satellite slated for a 2014 launch, aimed at delivering raw capacity to meet the growing market demand. NewSat also currently relies on teleport facilities in Perth and Adelaide which uplinks to several geostationary satellites in orbit. Both satellite ground stations are Military Accredited Global Access Points making them highly-secure stations for transmission.
The internet from satellite service currently supports over 4000 satellite telecommunication services across the globe. These regions include North and South Asia, the Middle East, Europe, the Americas, and the Pacific and Indian ocean regions. The VSAT Broadband platform can also be delivered using LinkStar or iDirect. For support, NewSat has a 24 x 7 x 365 Network Operations Centre in place for client service management.
