Onlime expands capabilities with Romantis

Aerzen, 11 November 2014: Onlime has signed a new contract with Romantis to purchase the latest generation satellite services hub to be installed at the Onlime teleport near Hameln in Germany.

The Romantis UHP platform will be the core to expand our service portfolio and address the networking requirements of our enterprise customers that include integration of various topologies. After a lengthy evaluation process, Onlime concluded that the Romantis hub offered the most efficient technological and cost-effective solution.
A large scale multi-site TDM/TDMA and SCPC / Mesh customer network in Africa will take advantage of these capabilities when they commence operations at the beginning of the first quarter in 2015.
Dr. Harald W. Stange, Romantis GmbH CEO said: “We are proud that Onlime, as a renowned European and international Solutions Provider, selected our UHP platform that will play a key role for expanding their services worldwide, addressing the needs of emerging markets. We are glad  that we can contribute to the roll-out of their new large-scale networks and VSAT services in Africa helping to close the digital gap by combining VSAT, fibre and wireless“. 
“The Romantis UHP platform supports “point to point”, “star”, “mesh” or complex hierarchy and is a perfect fit for our service portfolio expansion. We have a well-established relationship with Romantis and are looking forward to expanding this further. In our business no one solution fits all and there is a need for different technologies to support services delivered over C, Ku, Ka, or other bands, as well as integration of terrestrial networks delivered by wireless or fibre. Solution providers need to be flexible and continuously expand their service portfolio responding to market requirements. Onlime always aims to deliver the best experience to our customers.” commented Paul Ziegler, Onlime CEO.
