Apparently, I don't know everything in VoIP
, since I never heard of Newtec's
Sat3Play until this morning. Sat3Play is a Satellite Triple Play system that offers 2-way communication to enable VoIP, Internet access, and video (IPTV). They categorize it as a "Satellite Multimedia Broadband system".
They announced today
that they has won the prestigious Frost and Sullivan European Product Innovation Award, for the company's Satellite Triple Play System (Sat3Play). Hmm, I may have to consider Sat3Play for the TMC Labs Innovation Awards. As long as I get to review it with free TV channels and free VoIP.
Essentially, Sat3Play is two-way satellite multimedia broadband system, made up of an intelligent combination of various standards including DVB-S2, DVB-RCS, SATMODE and TCP/IP. It allows optimized delivery of video and audio services, fast internet access and VoIP telephony, to both businesses and consumers in areas where broadband is not generally available.
