SpaceBridge partners with XipLink to provide best in class backhaul for rural and remote areas
SpaceBridge Inc., a manufacturer of high throughput satellite (HTS)/VHTS broadband VSAT satellite network platforms, and Xiplink, the leading provider of radio access network (RAN) optimization and acceleration today jointly announced a technology partnership.
XipLink will be integrating their 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G RAN and L2/VLAN optimization software into SpaceBridge’s U7780 and U7800 Professional Satellite modems to provide high efficiency bandwidth on demand (BOD), which enables exceptional user experience and bandwidth savings. The integration of Xiplink’s Virtual Software solution into SpaceBridge’s blade distributed HUB architecture will provide quick and dynamically scalable capacity, providing mobile network operators (MNOs) a fully optimized dynamically shared bandwidth on demand backhaul solution, faster time-to-market and better ROI to deliver coverage.
SpaceBridge is a leading designer, manufacturer and provider of high throughput satellite (HTS)/VHTS broadband VSAT satellite network platforms, terminals and network solutions. SpaceBridge’s ASATTM VSAT solution features high throughput forward carriers based on DVB-S2X and return carriers based on advanced DVB-RCS2 MF-TDMA, and is available with scalable tiers to support thousands of remote user terminals (UTs) in the delivery of services to enterprises, mobile network operators, broadband users, etc.
The new U7780, born of SpaceBridge’s close collaboration with its customers, delivers a high efficiency, high throughput TDMA solution encompassing optimizations and accelerations essential to the delivery of mobile services with high user satisfaction. The U7800 also features SpaceBridge’s WaveSwitchTM which allows dynamic switching of bigger bandwidth customers from MF-TDMA to/from SCPC on the fly. This in turn allows sites to benefit from high performance of SCPC waveform and spectral efficiency on the returns, reduces overall satellite consumption and enables increased network sharing factor to serve larger amount of CBH sites with the same amount of satellite bandwidth.
The XipLink solution is designed to address the disadvantages associated with expensive and latency prone backhaul transport. It supports a comprehensive array of features that include GTP transparency, RAN optimization, TCP acceleration, congestion control, link estimation, traffic steering, security and quality of service (QoS). Globally, leading MNOs have deployed XipLink to boost mobile backhaul throughput, by significantly reducing satellite or microwave bandwidth consumption across the RAN.
SpaceBridge will showcase its satellite backhaul solution at CABSAT 2021, October 26th – 28th at Dubai World Trade Centre (Hall 3, Stand A3-30).
