Optimized and integrated small cell over satellite redefines the business case for remote cellular connectivity

Tapping into the global market of billions of “unconnected” mobile users, mainly in developing countries, is a huge business opportunity for mobile network operators (MNOs). Small cell technology redefines the business case for remote connectivity, enabling MNOs to easily increase coverage, and cost-effectively serve remote and rural areas.

Gilat’s breakthrough CellEdge solution bundles a small cell for 2G/3G/4G networks with our field-proven and highly efficient cellular backhaul over satellite solution. CellEdge enables operators to overcome high rollout costs, lack of telecommunications backhaul and power infrastructure, low consumer uptake and low ARPU.

The small cell is integrated and optimized with our cellular backhaul solution to provide an enhanced user experience with high throughput and reduced bandwidth costs. At the same time, CellEdge helps operators to reduce capital expenditure (CAPEX) through low-cost equipment and low installation costs, while substantially lessening operational costs (OPEX) by enabling the use of inexpensive solar power.

Top reasons for choosing Gilat’s small cell over satellite solution:

  • End-to-end integrated small cell solution optimized for cellular backhaul
  • Concurrent 3G/4G support
  • Cost-effective solar power option at off-grid locations
  • Leverages high speed and low OPEX of Gilat’s proven cellular backhaul solution
  • Integrated end-to-end solution with one point of contact for ultra-fast deployment
