  • 20 November, 2006 11:38

<p>NewSat Limited (ASX:NWT), a leading satellite communications provider and Linowave, a global provider of next generation 4G wireless communications, announced the signing today in Dubai of a strategic partnership to deliver leading-edge WiFi and communication solutions to customers globally.</p>
<p>As Australia comes to grip with 3G technology, both Newsat and Linowave are charting the future of telecommunications in 4G technology.</p>
<p>4G technology is positioned to be the future standard of communication over wireless devices and provides users with on-demand, high quality video as well as audio connectivity. The advent of quality video and substantially enhanced manageability of bandwidth are considered by analysts to be key drivers in the move to the emerging 4G.</p>
<p>“Combining Linowave 4G technology with NewSat’s broadband satellites services will bring a revolution to the telecommunication industry” said Linowave’s VP Engineering, Mr Louay Sakka, from its Dubai head office.</p>
<p>“We can deliver bleeding edge technology such as OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing), and also OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) to better allocate network resources to multiple users with 4G over NewSat’s satellite access.</p>
<p>“Plus, the use of SDR (software-defined radio) receivers allows for better use of available bandwidth as well as making use of multiple channels simultaneously,” he said.</p>
<p>“To provide these benefits to customers globally Linowave needed a strategic partner with its own technical capabilities, reliability, and well established support functions. These critieria pushed us to choose NewSat as our satellite internet partner of choice for our new 4G projects,” Mr Sakka said.</p>
<p>“NewSat’s reliability, high quality and efficient services have helped it become one of the world’s fastest growing satellite communications service providers and the new agreement with LinoWave ensures that customers are able to access either NewSat or LinoWave for a total solution to their communication needs,” said Adrian Ballintine, Founder and CEO of NewSat Limited.</p>
<p>NewSat’s General Manger - Middle East/Africa, Paul Seaton added, “NewSat has substantial assets and resources dedicated to satellite communications and related applications, including ownership and operation of its extensive mediaport assets.</p>
<p>“NewSat considered it important for our valued customers that our partners be able to provide the best possible solution for current as well as emerging WiFi communications and we are extremely proud to be able to offer them Linowave’s extensive product range in the forefront of the next generation of communications pathways”.</p>
