SpaceBridge Inc., a manufacturer of High Throughput Satellite (HTS)/VHTS Broadband VSAT satellite network platforms, and Xiplink, the provider of Radio Access Network (RAN) Optimisation and Acceleration, have signed a partnership deal.
XipLink will be integrating their 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G RAN and L2/VLAN optimisation software into SpaceBridge’s U7780 and U7800 Professional Satellite modems to provide high-efficiency bandwidth on demand (BOD), which enables 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 optimised dynamically shared bandwidth on demand backhaul solution, faster time-to-market and better ROI to deliver coverage.
SpaceBridge’s ASAT 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 high efficiency, high throughput TDMA solution encompassing optimisations and accelerations essential to the delivery of mobile services with high user satisfaction. The U7800 also features SpaceBridge’s WaveSwitch, 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 the performance of SCPC waveform and spectral efficiency on the returns, reduces overall satellite consumption and enables increased network sharing factor to serve a 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 Optimisation, 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.
