New Era Systems - satellite communications for internet cafés and business in Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America

New Era Systems, together with World Satellite Services, operate from their own International Teleport, located in Miami, Florida.  They have two 9.3m Andrews antennas, two 13 m Vertex antennas and a 4.5 m Andrews antenna.

The 13m Vertex dish provides C band satellite internet connection via SatMex 5 to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.

This company provides a single point contact where you can discuss your requirements, purchase equipment and installation and arrange a suitable monthly bandwidth lease.  They are anxious that you should make a success of your business and can provide support for local area network, VoIP gateway, router, ethernet switch, wireless hot spot and local networking.  This is precisely the sort of service needed by internet cafés, business parks and community networks.

The installation photos, on the right, refer the assembly and installation of a 4.5m diameter Andrews antenna.   Such a size would be suitable for a high quality backbone for a large installation serving a small town or major business area.

The majority of the customers terminals are smaller, comprising 2.4m dish, 5 watt C band BUC and an L-Band modem. Typically this sort of package is put together for around $9000.  Many clients also add VoIP gateway, router and ethernet switch.

Making a VSAT terminal a commercial success requires local connectivity and this is increasingly being achieved using wireless techniques, including the use of repeaters within a 15 mile radius (line of sight).

The company are friendly and experienced in implementing such services in remote Mexico, Caribbean, Central and South America areas and knowing about providing every necessary item, including extra nuts and bolts, waterproofing tape, tie wraps etc.


The company has a background in the telephony business, and for this reason they offer dedicated SCPC services. At the hub the customer may co-locate modems, muxes and routers to interconnect with major terrestrial fibre backbones.

Digging hole for concrete antenna base

Assembling the antenna dish reflector panels requires great skill.  The outer ring must be flat to 3mm for C band operation

Pouring concrete to form the antenna base. Note the wooden shuttering and reinforcing iron grid.  The three foot fittings for the dish legs are already accurately positioned.

Finding the satellite is difficult but accurate peaking up even more so.  Nuts must be adjusted to 1/6th of a turn precision.
