IPSTAR is a cost-effective alternative to microwave links and fiber optics, and is capable of providing mobile network operators with satellite-based backhaul for bandwidth-efficient and scalable mobile service.
IPSTAR can provide nationwide mobile network coverage, allowing mobile network operators to avoid costly deployment of terrestrial infrastructure in areas with few subscribers.
The robust IPSTAR backhaul solution can be deployed in areas with low population density on a point-to-point, multipoint or mesh network configuration. IPSTAR cellular backhaul service can also be deployed in buildings with no access to terrestrial networks by using femtocell technology.
The extension of cellular network coverage to accommodate higher traffic loads or to cover more geographical areas can be done quickly and economically with IPSTAR, since satellite-enabled cell sites only require minimal additional infrastructure.
