Mobile Backhaul

Written on 03 Jun 2020


Most under-served areas face challenges related to geography, infrastructure reability and low population density, making it either physically impossible or economically infeasible to provide communication services using fiber and microwave. If high-quality mobile broadband services are to reach these communities, these challenges must be solved.

Mobile Backhaul

How can Mobile Backhaul help you:

Mobile Backhaul

To help you expand your reach – efficiently and profitably, our team combines deep networking expertise, in-country resources, and a flexible range of managed network solutions. Our Managed Mobile Backhaul solutions combine dynamically allocated satellite capacity with optimized network infrastructure. Provided under a single robust service level agreement – SLA, our managed services reduce deployment risk and accelerate revenues for 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE services in previously unreachable or under-served areas, plus fully support the fulfilment of universal service obligations.

Low latency Backhaul if needed

SES MEO satellite constellation uses spot beam technology to provide low latency, high throughput satellite (HTS) data rates up to 1 Gbps to a single site – with multiple, steerable beams available. Since one beam can generally provide enough bandwidth for multiple towers in a region, MEO solutions are ideally suited to backhauling large capacities of traffic from a multi-tower aggregation point.

Dynamic bandwidth allocation and scale

Our managed network services are optimised for mobile backhaul, and designed to deliver a superior quality of experience to the end user. We can also offer backhaul to hub infrastructure manufactured by the MNO, if required for regulatory or security purposes. Our service platforms are built on key capabilities:

Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation, so you can meet changing end-user demand in real time;
Spectrum Efficiency, ensuring optimal use of spectrum resources;
Advanced Traffic Optimization for improving the end-user experience.

Mobile BackhaulFlexible Service Models

Flexible Capacity Pools allow the MNO to dynamically assign CIR and MIR on a per site basis based on subscriber patterns. The MNO is billed for the overall pool of capacity, resulting in a more cost-effective service model than one based on peak throughput per site.

Volume-based Billing is our other service model. Here, the MNO is assigned a committed monthly volume (CMV) with the ability to burst higher by tapping into a shared pool of bandwidth. Billed to the MNO in terabytes consumed, this results in backhaul expenses that match user consumption. The result is better alignment between operator revenue and backhaul networks costs, helping improve the backhaul business case with a lower-risk operating model.

A Trusted partner for the long term

Our commitment to the future growth of MNOs is demonstrated by our ecosystem-driven approach to applications and services delivered from the mobile edge. As we expand our partner programme to manage critical network functions at the mobile edge, we can enable new revenue opportunities from edge-hosted applications, including those based on the Internet of Things (IoT) and network functions virtualisation (NFV).

Our cost-effective solutions are tailored to meet business requirements specific to MNOs, and backed by strong and comprehensive service level agreements (SLAs). We provide:

  • Deep expertise delivering end-to-end managed mobile network solutions;
  • Unmatched flexibility to build the right solution over GEO and MEO satellite fleets;
  • Wide range of mobile backhaul pricing models that align costs to revenue.
