MNO in Africa

SpaceBridge delivered Large Scale Cellular Backhaul Over Satellite Platform to the largest MNO in Africa

SpaceBridge delivered its ASAT II ™ platform to the largest MNO in Africa. It operates over majority African countries and Middle East to enable fast deployment of 2G BTS. As well as 4G eNodeB cells providing backhaul connectivity over satellite to unserved remote areas without or limited cellular coverage.

Feb 24, 2020, — Montreal, Canada — SpaceBridge (www.spacebridge.com) a global market leader and supplier of multiservice broadband satellite communications systems technology, advanced HTS VSAT platforms, Cloud based managed services, SCPC and broadcast modems, was selected and delivered its solution for 2G/4G mobile cellular backhaul over satellite network to the African largest mobile network operator (MNO) for servicing the unserved remote areas and replace currently installed technology.

The delivered satellite backhauling solution, equipped with SpaceBridge’s WaveSwitch™ patented technology offering VSAT stations that on-a-fly. I switches between SCPC, A-SCPC or MF-TDMA waveforms.  The integration between SpaceBridge satellite platform, eNodeB terrestrial equipment and the MNO allows the satellite band to adjust to the cellular traffic growth. Such flexibility will enable the population to receive the adequate service for years to come. While having better transmission quality, it will provide a faster Internet access for sending pictures, videos, texts and superior voice communications.

For MNO in Africa, various communication protocols, network security, Abis/GTP traffic optimization. As well as, TCP acceleration inside the GTP tunnels are important features required for successful 2G/4G deployment.  SpaceBridge embedded optimization software allowed for space segment savings of up to 35%. As well as the use of Layer 2 and ability to prioritize data transmission between Control Plane, Management protocols and user traffic with a large amount of packets per second as key features of SpaceBridge Cellular Backhaul equipment that allowed the mobile operator to fully meet its network growth requirements.
