FlexACM is a unique end-to-end solution — combining a range of cutting edge technologies — for implementing ACM technology, IP shaping, compression and acceleration for highly efficient IP trunking and IP backbone satellite links. The implementation of FlexACM can result in a doubling of the data throughput in a given satellite segment while also guaranteeing 100 percent link availability and reducing operational costs (OPEX) by up to 50 percent. The unique and innovative patent-pending Noise and Distortion Estimator (NoDE) functionality increases the performance of the FlexACM powered satellite link through accurately monitoring the quality of the link and enabling optimum usage of satellite transponders.

"Communities in the Middle East and across the continent of Africa truly rely on these vitally important links with the rest of the world," says Serge Van Herck, CEO, Newtec. "With DVB-S2 and the unique advantages of our FlexACM technology, CETel can now provide a massive improvement in the quantity, quality and robustness of the service it provides to these often remote communities, while continuing to increase the profitability of their own operation."
