Expand your coverage and services

If you’re a mobile network operator, carrier or service integrator aiming to supply remote, rural, and/or sparsely populated areas with network coverage and services, you’ll need a solution that facilitates this expansion where wireline and microwave wireless solutions are not available. That’s where satellite backhaul comes in.

Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellations provided by Iridium and Eutelsat, among others, are the best choice, as the latency delay is just 40 milliseconds, compared to Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites, which have a latency of 600ms. This means users in remote areas will be able to access the internet, use rich messaging channels like WhatsApp, make VoIP calls, and play games online.

"Gain resilient connectivity with satellite redundancy that covers all markets and regions, eliminating the digital divide and effectively opening up new revenue streams for your company." - Eutelsat

When no physical synchronization with your core network is possible, satellite backhaul is a viable, reliable option. Ground Control works with leading LEO satellite constellation providers, so we can advise mobile network operators on the best choice for your requirements, looking at resilience, price, coverage, scalability, and interoperability with your current systems.

Ground Control also provides the hardware needed to house satellite transceivers; from our proprietary RockBLOCK and Toughsat ranges through to Hughes, iDirect, Cobham, Iridium, Globalstar and ViaSat, among others. This means we can offer unbiased, professional advice from our team of satellite connectivity experts.
