Mexico’s rural communities are about to get a connectivity boost thanks to two satcoms-related businesses – ST Engineering iDirect and AXESS Networks – working alongside Altan, a major local operator.
Satellite communications company ST Engineering iDirect has been awarded a contract to provide its long-term partner, satellite solutions company AXESS Networks, with the first Newtec Dialog XIF hub deployed in Mexico to connect remote communities and businesses.
The hub will be used by AXESS Networks’ customer, mobile operator Altan, to deliver 4G mobile services to rural sites across the region.
AXESS offers a range of VSAT services across the Americas and EMEA regions and is a leading regional operator. It’s also a current user of the iDirect Evolution platform. In expanding its portfolio with Dialog, says ST Engineering iDirect, the company can now make use of more solutions from ST Engineering iDirect’s portfolio to execute its growth plans across many different markets.
AXESS will leverage ST Engineering iDirect’s Mx-DMA return technology, a core feature of the Dialog platform, to extend 4G cellular backhaul connectivity services to remote parts of Mexico, reaching 100Mbps/30Mbps throughput per site.
Mx-DMA is described as the industry’s most efficient and dynamic return technology, one that will enable AXESS to seamlessly share satellite capacity efficiently among its terminals, while satisfying the most demanding throughput requirements in markets such as cellular backhaul, trunking and high-end enterprise.
ST Engineering iDirect says that this patented waveform technology will empower AXESS to offer the widest range of cellular backhaul applications to expand its market share.
