The Satellite Cellular Backhaul service allows mobile phone operators to quickly extend their network regardless of their geographical location, and to protect their land-based links with a satellite-based backup circuit.
It makes it possible to have mobile BTS/NodeB stations which can be deployed immediately in transitory situations and for coverage of special events (mass events, crisis situations, response to catastrophes, etc.).
The Satellite Cellular Backhaul service has the following key indicators:
- Monthly availability SLA per site.
- Installation time which depends on the country in which the service is contracted.
- Onsite fault resolution time.
- Full maintenance service with guaranteed response times to fulfil the SLA.
The Satellite Cellular Backhaul solution is very flexible and adaptable to the specific requirements of mobile operators, taking into account the technological evolution of mobile telephone services, in both voice and data (GPRS/EDGE, 3G, 4G,…).
It is proven in terms of satellite technology integration with different manufacturers of mobile phone technology.
The Satellite Cellular Backhaul service can be designed as a customised version of the Dedicated Links or VSAT services depending on the specific requirements of mobile phone operators.
It is also possible to transform this service into a portable model through the Portability service.
