North Telecom was exhibiting at Broadcast Asia for the first time this year. The company was demonstrating its new platforms for Central Asia and the Asia Pacific region.
Mahdi Nazari, CTO, North Telecom said: “We have new platforms especially for Central Asia and Asia Pacific as well, and this is based on IDRX technology which is very new and available at a very competitive price. This is especially for Afghanistan, India, Malaysia, Pakistan and Indonesia, besides other countries.
Nazari explained further that North Telecom was looking for feedback from the maritime satellite sector. “The basic concept here is we are looking for potential in Asia, for maritime VSATs and mobile satellite communications. For fixed satellite communications we have a new product which is NSS12, with C-band capacity. It is a very high quality satellite over Asia. We have very stable services because it is not that sensitive to rain as the big issue in Asia Pacific is rain. In these conditions Ku band services may sometimes not work. We are also looking at some feedback and to do a market survey for maritime business,” said Nazari.
Overall Nazari said this year’s show was very good, very crowded and almost all of the bigger players in the satellite industry were present. “We’ve had a very good feedback from the show. Till now we’ve signed three deals,” concluded Nazari.
