Neda orders 2,000 Isotropic Systems self-installing broadband terminals

Isotropic Systems, the next-generation satellite terminal provider, has entered into an agreement with Neda ( ) to develop self-installing, all electronic scanning terminals to extend its single channel per carrier (SCPC) broadband capabilities across Afghanistan for enterprise, government and consumer users, the company said.

Isotropic will supply Neda with an ´out of the box´ consumer web experience that eliminates the need for skilled installation, and allows for remote repointing to alternative satellite capacity services when required. The deal with Isotropic Systems demonstrates Neda´s commitment to innovation in Afghanistan to provide world-class connectivity in the region.

Isotropic Systems optical technology will enable terminals that meet or exceed traditional very small aperture terminal (VSAT) performance at one-tenth the cost of current VSAT, making a low-maintenance, self-installing, ´out of the box´ experience a reality.

Isotropic´s core technology mitigates several key engineering challenges to deliver seamless auto tracking, unlimited instantaneous bandwidth through true time delay, and a 90% reduction in power consumption over conventional design. Isotropic Systems´ technology automatically tunes the satellite beam pointing to maintain the precise accuracy over time that is uniquely needed for Ka-band systems to optimize the efficiency of the links in the service provider´s network.

Isotropic Systems is developing the world´s first multi-service, high-bandwidth, low power, fully integrated high throughput terminal designed to support the satellite industry to ´reach beyond´ traditional markets and acquire new customers with a full suite of high throughput services. The company´s team of industry experts and scientists has pioneered several firsts in satellite terminal design. For more information visit, @isotropicsystems.

NEDA Telecommunications was founded in 2003 as the first licensed ISP in Afghanistan, starting with dial-up and moving swiftly into wireless broadband services. Neda quickly established itself as the Internet Service Provider in Afghanistan with a presence in most major cities and plans to roll out still further.
