Extend coverage everywhere with the market’s highest speed cellular backhaul over satellite
Mobile network operators (MNOs) are constantly looking for ways to expand coverage, accelerate time to market and capitalize on the growing demand for mobile voice and data services in metro, metro-edge and rural areas. Due to the prohibitive costs and excessive time to deploy terrestrial backhaul networks on islands, mountainous regions and other hard-to-serve areas, cellular backhaul over satellite is often the only viable option.
Advances in mobile infrastructure and satellite technology are also changing the business case for serving metro and metro-edge, in addition to remote areas. High throughput satellites (HTS), in particular, have substantially reduced operational costs. However, the reliability, speed and performance of your 3G/4G network depends on the VSAT equipment being used to connect your base stations to the core network.
Gilat’s cellular backhaul solution makes it possible for MNOs to rapidly and cost-effectively expand their services. Our end-to-end solution includes state-of-the-art VSAT hubs and terminals designed to allow your customers to enjoy the benefits of true LTE performance.
Designed to operate with HTS multi-spot beam satellites, Gilat’s VSAT platform uses patented embedded acceleration techniques built to overcome the inherent latency in satellite communications, which is critical for ensuring the required user experience. Gilat’s LTE backhaul solutions are comparable in cost and quality to terrestrial solutions for metro and metro-edge, as is the case for rural and emergency/backup solutions.
