(businesspress24) - SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 22 February 2019 – Newtec – a specialist in the design, development and manufacture of equipment and technologies for satellite communications – today announced it is collaborating with Wind River to utilize the Wind River Titanium Cloud virtualization platform to develop a Newtec 5G solution based on the Newtec Dialog® multiservice platform.

3GPP has defined a service-based architecture where flexibility and dynamic adjustments are the key drivers to meet performance and cost requirements. This architecture defines network functions which can be triggered by other services, leveraging virtualization and network slicing.

Wind River’s complete Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) software platform infrastructure will help Newtec Dialog leapfrog these 5G requirements. The Titanium Cloud platform delivers the features needed to successfully build and deploy a virtualized network running multiple Virtual Machines.

“NFV promises lower-cost, highly flexible and scalable infrastructure, as well as providing our customers with the ability to get better service access anywhere in the world,” said Bart Van Poucke, VP Product Management at Newtec. “The combination of Newtec Dialog with Wind River’s Titanium Cloud platform will enable our customers and service providers to scale services up or down quickly to address changing needs. It also simplifies the architecture and enhances scalability which is paramount for 5G.”

Paul Senyshyn, Vice President of Telecommunications at Wind River, said: “We are delighted that Newtec has selected the Wind River Titanium Cloud platform for use in its new 5G satellite infrastructure solution. Titanium Cloud delivers the high service reliability, ultra-low latency and low-cost deployments that are critical for scalable satellite communications infrastructure. We are pleased to be collaborating with Newtec as it drives important innovations in this market.”

Newtec has signed a joint statement with the European Space Agency (ESA) and a number of industrial companies to carry out trials to demonstrate the use of satellite communications capabilities integrated and interoperable in the 5G environment, achieve interoperability of networks and demonstrate the functionality, performance and benefits brought by the use of satellite. A first phase is leveraging existing space and ground segment assets and trialling the latest developments, including with newer LEO and MEO constellations.

“A number of use-cases for 5G over satellite require close interworking with terrestrial mobile networks where NFV/SDN technologies are becoming key and satellite architecture must leverage network orchestration, virtualization and slicing functions to offer a truly seamless connectivity service,” said Semir Hassanaly, Market Director Mobile Backhaul at Newtec. “The integration of Wind River’s Titanium Cloud platform is an additional step Newtec is making towards 5G. The same architecture principles will be also leveraged in Newtec’s terminals in the near future, paving the way for a 5G solution addressing Mobile Backhaul, OTT Broadcast, Broadband and Mobility markets.”

Newtec is attending Mobile World Congress at the Fira Gran Via, in Barcelona, from Monday, February 25 to Thursday, February 28. To book a meeting, please visit:
