Mytel to deploy satellite backhaul solution

21 Jun 2018

Vietnamese-backed cellco Mytel has selected Communication & Commerce (Com & Com) to provide a satellite backhaul solution to support its network expansion. Com & Com’s system will use Newtec’s Cross-Dimensional Multiple Access (Mx-DMA) dynamic bandwidth allocation technology, which the vendor claims combines the efficiency of a single channel per carrier (SCPC) system with the bandwidth allocation of multi-frequency time division multiple access (MF-TDMA) to provide best-cost performance, bandwidth efficiency and reliability. Commenting on the rollout, Com & Com’s MD Theingi Lin explained: ‘Satellite communication is the most cost-effective, fastest and reliable way of bridging the digital divide in Myanmar as it can be deployed in even the most rural areas in a very short time. By blending Newtec’s innovative technologies and Com & Com’s fully managed satellite services, we are confident that we can enhance Mytel’s offering and meet the growing demand for connectivity while ensuring optimal end-user experience.’

Mytel’s deputy CEO Nguyen The Nghia added: ‘As a rapidly growing mobile operator, increasing our coverage and making our product offering as competitive as possible is very important. Newtec’s and Com & Com’s solution will help us achieve this goal by lowering our OpEx thanks to the efficiency provided by Newtec’s mobile backhaul technologies including Mx-DMA, which is already a success for a number of operators across Asia.’ The most recent entrant in Myanmar’s mobile market, Mytel is a joint venture of Star High Public Company (owned by the Myanmar military), Myanmar National Telecom Holding (a consortium of eleven local companies) and Vietnam’s Viettel.
