Mobile networks are growing at a rapid pace. The demand for advanced enterprise and consumer services combined with the growth in connectivity is driving mobile operators to quickly scale their networks. As operators look to expand coverage and grow subscribers beyond urban areas it can be challenging to justify the investment and provide the Quality of Experience for customers in more remote locations. That is where cellular backhaul over satellite can offer cost-effective solutions by extending and leveraging the network for not only reaching remote and rural locations, but also insuring first responder’s emergency networks, provide disaster recovery capabilities and the ability to off load traffic in highly congested areas.

Advances in mobile infrastructure along with new developments in satellite technology are changing the business case for serving remote and rural customers. Satellite has the unique ability to reach almost any location and provide immediate connectivity. It is quick to deploy and provides a very reliable connection.
