Intrasky to boost internet connectivity in Lebanon

by Staff Reporter | March 10th, 2014

Intrasky is utilising Ka-band capacity on the Eutelsat 8 West C satellite operated by Eutelsat together with Newtec’s latest technology to enhance internet connectivity services in the Levant area.

Intrasky will occupy a 72 MHz transponder on the satellite with a 250Mbps link for a leading ISP in the region that is seeking to supplement stretched download capacity on fibre and ensure continuity of service.

Intrasky has chosen the Newtec MDM6000 satellite modem with high bandwidth optimisation, which is able to manage multiple services including data, video and internet access.

“With this very competitive solution we are demonstrating how we constantly seek to provide our clients with the latest technology using very efficient high-throughput satellite capacity. Based on Intrasky’s long experience and this technological combination, we have once again taken up the challenge to implement innovative satellite services and are forging the way into the region’s future satellite business,” says Naim Aoun, General Manager of Intrasky.

Jean-François Leprince-Ringuet, CCO of Eutelsat, adds: “The demand for IP backhaul is increasing year on year, driven by more video consumption through the internet and a relentless surge in the use of data services via smartphones. The combination of Eutelsat’s Ka-band capacity and Newtec’s technology positions us to offer flexible and reliable internet connectivity solutions, challenging the perception that fibre is the automatic route to highly competitive point-to-point links.”
