Unlocking 3G/4G/LTE Backhaul Opportunities via Satellite

At Cellular Backhaul 2016: Smartphones and Tablets – To the Satellite Network and the World, Semir Hassanaly, Market Director Cellular Backhaul & Trunking, Newtec will speak about "Unlocking 3G/4G/LTE Backhaul Opportunities via Satellite". 


In this roundtable panel discussion, following topics will be discussed: 

  • LTE, 3G and 2G networks over satellite – What is the state of play today?
  • Satellite services operate across multiple architectures (FSS, MSS, GEO-HTS, non-GEO-HTS etc). Is there a “right architecture” for 4G LTE? And what are the key network elements to look for?
  • The latency debate: New platforms are rapidly reducing satellite latency to bring services closer in performance to terrestrial services. Legacy platforms are enjoying the fruits of acceleration and improved network tools to allow LTE and other traffic to operate over almost any satellite network.
  • So what can and what can’t be integrated over modern satellite, and what are the trade-offs?
  • As markets move to 4G/LTE networks with forecasts indicating need for support for three orders of magnitude more data traffic, how can scalable, flexible, satellite backhaul be achieved?
  • With mobile network operators (MNOs) looking increasingly at the segmenting of macro-cells into even smaller (femto-, pico-) cells, what challenges/opportunities does this trend for the satellite backhaul vendor?
  • Where is the growth that the cellular industry finds hardest/most costly to rollout? Does it match the satellite industry’s bandwidth availability?
