GSM Backhaul for Telecoms

GSM backhaul solution over satellite

Ever expanding requirement for communication needs to each remote corner of the Globe finding the terrestrial infrastructure very limited to suffice the requirement to connect GSM networks. GSM operators are reaching saturation in urban areas have to expand their network in the rural areas for future growth. According to the study the next wave of subscriber growth will come from rural areas and the major challenge to serve those areas is one i.e. either the non-availability of infrastructure or very limited infrastructure.

GSM backhaul solution over satellite which is independent of terrestrial infrastructure and has the capability to overcome any issues related to terrain can easily provide GSM Operators the required reach and expansion to the remotest areas. The solution is also ideal as the backup for terrestrial infrastructure.
