Changing the Landscape of the Cellular Backhaul Market with SatHaul-XE

Cellular Backhaul

The growth and popularity of mobile voice and data services are causing mobile operators around the globe to evaluate different backhaul technologies to meet the rapidly increasing demand for their 3G/4G/LTE network deployments. Especially in rural areas, mobile operators are looking at satellite to extend their coverage as it is now becoming a more economical and rapidly deployable solution for backhauling.

Mobile Backhaul Trends

Improvements in mobile infrastructure along with new developments in satellite technology are changing the business case for upgrading to more modern networks. While new High Throughput Satellite (HTS) architecture is dramatically lowering the cost per bit for bandwidth, next-generation satellite ground infrastructure is improving throughput levels, form factors, network efficiency and the end-user experience. To take full advantage, operators are looking at modernizing their networks all while evaluating how satellite backhaul is integrated into the larger converged end-to-end network. Operators and service providers need to find new revenue opportunities globally.
