Mobile Backhaul Solutions

Partner with a technology pioneer

We offer high-throughput satellite backhaul solutions to fixed and mobile operators, allowing them to roll out their networks in rural areas, reduce black spots, and complement their networks when they are down or when there is a surge in demand.

We were the first to deliver commercially 3G and 4G Ka-band backhaul in EMEA and today we are working with some of the largest operators, providing them with the latest carrier-grade satellite backhaul solutions delivering superior network performance and market leading SLA’s.

As the world moves towards 5G, we are leading the SaT5G initiative along with a group of blue-chip partners in actively testing 5G applications over our satellite network.

We help Carriers deliver the optimal experience for their customers

Expand networks

Operators use our high-throughput satellite backhaul to expand their networks beyond their terrestrial reach and offer the same quality of service to their customers in areas that are hard to reach, less populated and less commercially viable. Our satellite backhaul overcomes the barriers of cost and deployment as well as helping operators meet their Universal Service Obligations.

Complement network when down

Ka-band satellite backhaul is vital when Networks are down or saturated, quick to deploy and integrates seamlessly with any operator’s network.

In the event of failure of a primary backhaul network, we provide 100% diverse routing from base stations and automatic switching for voice and data traffic over our network.

Reliable and secure

With a consistent radio frequency availability of 99.9%, we deliver an ultra-reliable and secure service, including for mission critical applications such as emergency services and first responders. Our customers benefit from our fully resilient ground network, including dual-redundancy Gateway Earth Stations across EMEA, a cross-connect fibre network and a highly secure backhaul network.

Cost-effective and quick to deploy

With much higher throughput achieved using the same amount of bandwidth, Ka-band satellite backhaul is one of the most cost-effective solutions available.

Ka-band technology uses smaller dishes and equipment than other technologies, which are cheaper, easier to move around and suit rapid deployment such as for emergency services or temporary sites coverage – with no compromise on reliability.

Guaranteed business continuity with satellite backhaul

We provide carrier grade Satellite Backhaul and backhaul backup to approximately 750 fixed and mobile 4G base stations across the UK for a major Mobile Network Operator, offering a highly resilient and reliable service even in very remote and rural areas.
