Welcome to the latest edition of Newtec News – full of exciting industry insights as we continue to enter a new era of connectivity.
Serving Today’s Needs, Preparing for Tomorrow
For Newtec, this new era means connecting more people and more applications in more locations than ever before. It also means dealing with never-before-seen data demands – which is why we are committed to continuing to push the boundaries of satellite communication technology.
Nowhere is this evolution more evident than with satellite. To give an example, for workers on maritime vessels or passengers on cruise ships, gone are the days when a satellite telephone was needed to connect to the mainland. Today, satellite-based Wi-Fi enables users to call or message their friends and family from their smartphones, with satellite’s role almost invisible.
The same will happen, perhaps to an even greater extent, when 5G arrives. Incorporating a mix of technologies – including millimeter waves, fiber/ microwave and satellite constellations – 5G will enable end-users to move seamlessly between networks, aware that they have a connection but oblivious to the access technology providing it.
The Sky is not the Limit
As with all great innovations, this will not happen overnight and much remains unclear but one certainty is that new trends and applications will continue to emerge.
Looking ahead, we will continue to evolve with the industry, making our offering even more competitive and geared towards a future that is only just beginning to emerge.
For now, enjoy the read.
