Juch-Tech Inc. has successfully conducted a live demonstration providing several different network services to Northern Communications and Information Services (NCIS). Using SES AMC9, NovelSat NS3™ Modulation Technology, XipLink Wireless Link Optimization and Acceleration and ATOP Video Streaming.
Hamilton, Ontario November 9th, 2012: Juch-Tech Inc. which provides Internet connectivity into remote areas including Africa, successfully demonstrated its satellite Internet access service to the NCIS, Working Group at their conference on October 30th in Iqaluit. The NCIS is mandated to improve communications services in the North as outlined in the Arctic Communications Infrastructure Assessment Report (ACIA).
The level of communication service in the North is far lower than that enjoyed by families, schools, government agencies and businesses in the south. There are 75 remote and under-served Arctic communities spread over 1/3 of Canada’s land mass. Reliable and affordable communications systems, that are on par with the rest of Canada, are becoming a reality with new technology and new competitive service providers.
Rogers phones were able to roam with crystal clear call quality on the Juch-Tech Network. Coman Arctic provided all local support and logistics to make this test possible in Iqaluit.
The existing providers have had a virtual monopoly delivering communication services to Northern communities. Juch-Tech’s experience in providing reliable and cost effective Internet solutions to remote regions in Africa has convinced the company that Northern Canada has fallen behind many of the world’s poorest regions in terms of Internet access and telecommunications service.
Juch-Tech has contacted world-leading satellite operator SES to provide northern service with its AMC 9 satellite. Already launched and fully operational, this satellite is fully capable of providing satellite services desperately needed in communities like Iqaluit and across the north.
NovelSat provided its high speed Modems delivering the world’s fastest data rates and incorporating revolutionary NS3™ technology for improved spectrum efficiency. XipLink provided their wireless link optimization and acceleration solution to dramatically improve application- performance and responsiveness, and Atop provided the HD video streaming, formatted for full screen and GSM/IP mobile devices.
Walt Juchniewicz, President, CEO and Founder of Juch-Tech reinforced to conference delegates, that communication is a fundamental necessity in all our daily lives. Arctic communities, government departments, Canada’s military, emergency response agencies, schools, hospitals and residents all need to have better Internet access, and our experience across Africa tells us we can do this in Canada’s north. “Africa has taught us that the diversity and accessibility of satellite Internet providers has inevitably and irrevocably advanced communication reliability, access and quality throughout the continent. In a single provider scenario there is little incentive to stay current with technological advances. Competition drives continuous improvements in quality, choice and cost effective solutions and at Juch-Tech we are used to competition and ongoing service improvement.”
