RuSat Selects Newtec To Offer B2C And B2B VSAT Broadband Service

Service will enable high speed and competitive broadband connectivity all over Russia using the Yamal-402 satellite

MOSCOW, Russia, and SINT-NIKLAAS, Belgium, 28 January 2013 RuSat, a satellite service provider for enterprise customers, Internet service providers, and government agencies in Russia, is launching a new satellite broadband service using Newtec's latest VSAT hub and end-user terminal technology.

The service will be offered over the Yamal-402 satellite that was launched on December 8 2012. Until now the only VSAT services available in Russia were expensive and only available in limited parts of the country. Using the new Yamal-402 satellite, RuSat is now providing satellite broadband services all over the Russian territory. Raduga Internet is the first ISP that is using RuSat's service to provide Internet services to the consumer market.

Sergey Alymov, General Director of RuSat, said. "We have made an extensive market analysis and selected Newtec's VSAT technology for our new satellite broadband service. We are impressed by the ease of use, the bandwidth efficiency and the price attractiveness of the end-user terminal. This means we can keep our service pricing as low as possible for our customers without jeopardising quality. That is key! Additionally, Newtec has an excellent reputation for equipment reliability and customer service so we are pleased to partner with them."

In 2012 Newtec started shipping its new high-speed VSAT broadband technology. This new technology has already been selected by several customers, including Europe's most successful satellite broadband service. Whilst the RuSat service will utilise Ku band, the terminals can be easily upgraded later to operate in Ka band by a simple change of Newtec's interactive LNB and with no hardware adaptation to the satellite modem or the antenna.

Serge Van Herck, CEO of Newtec, said: "The Russian VSAT broadband market is experiencing a real boost as more capacity becomes available over a wider geographic area. We are proud that we can help RuSat offer market leading satellite broadband services and this at a very competitive price point both for the professional and the consumer market."

The Yamal-402 satellite, located at 55° east, was launched by Gazprom Space Systems and is equipped with 46 Ku Band transponders with four fixed and one steerable beam.

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Container technology is shaping the future of DevOps and it’s also changing the way organizations think about application development.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice.
