Net GSM®

Development of broadband data is growing rapidly across the world. In areas lacking fixed broadband infrastructure, mobile networks are expected to play a major role as it has been the case in rural areas here Second Generation (2G) GSM has been the predominant way to provide voice and text services. Satellite can be used for mobile backhaul when the distance between the base station equipment and the core of the network is too large for microwave to be economically viable.

Backhauling third Generation (3G) and Fourth Generation (4G) mobile through satellite brings also new challenges to cope with delay sensitive traffic, synchronization and data throughput and cost performance.

While satellite backhaul, for 2G networks, were focused on reducing the bandwidth required to transport voice, optimization for 3G/4G focus on data transmission. Available solutions include header data compression, web and video acceleration, and caching. Typical applications of 3G/4G backhaul by satellite include: Read More

    NETSAT SOLUTION FOR GSM SATELLITE BACKHAULING
    Netsat being of the leading Satellite Servicing Company has been leading the industry from front by providing GSM Backhauling Services using the SCPC VSAT technology featuring Carrier & Carrier (CNC) designed by COMTECH EFDATA USA for the cellular operators of the country. Figure below illustrate Netsat’s satellite backhaul rchitecture towards 3G Node B, 4G e-Node B and 3G/4G small cells:
    Our esteem clients who have acquired Netsat’s GSM satellite Backhauling Services which include Zong (CMPAK) & Mobilink Pakistan. For the projects of these two cellular operators, NETSAT has designed the solution (Technology), gears / equipment deliveries, done prompt installations & provided highly dependent O&M services.
    Following is brief of NETSAT activities / achievements within the GSM Satellite Backhauling projects so far:
    Zong Pakistan (China Mobiles Pakistan Limited)

    • Twenty (20) remote sites for E1 transmission
    • Provisioning of O&M services
    Mobilink Pakistan
    • Swapping, re-installation & O&M of SCPC VSAT remote station for E1 transmission
    • Currently engaged with Mobilink for their recent requirement of Satellite GSM Backhauling for six (06) new sites with a fully redundant SCPC VSAT hub & O&M of sixty (60) pre-installed sites
    • We are very hopeful that the above mentioned project shall be awarded to us after the consideration of our previous history & highly dependable support services over an appropriate price

Microwave Backhauling

    Microwave Backhauling
    Microwave is particularly useful for situations where it is not possible to run a copper or fiber link and the Remote locations where it is not viable to run a physical link & are located at a distance which could be commence able for Microwave connectivity. Here the distance meant ‘Aerial Distance’ which could vary between 45Kms to 65Kms. Thus Microwave has become a very good alternative for the sites which are located at the aerial distance as mentioned above, with least OTC & MRC. With the experience of commencing more than 500 Microwave / Wireless networks within Licensed & Unlicensed band, Netsat enjoys its leading edge over its competition for its capabilities to design, install, test & commence BTS site of any cellular operator in the country over Microwave. We feel proud over the diligent capabilities of our Technocrats (technical teams) who have commenced various installation of BTS sites of the cellular operators like Mobilink, Zong & Telenor as Contractor or Sub-contractors of the companies like Ericson, NSN, Alcatel & Lucent etc. Following is the brief of our historic activity within this domain:

    • Swap Work for forty (40) BTS sites for Mobilink Pakistan as the Sub-Contractor of Alcatel
    • BTS installations of hundred (100) sites as a Sub-Contractor of Ericson Pakistan
    • Microwave De-location of four hundred (400) BTS for Mobilink Pakistan
    • BTS swap project for Telenor Pakistan for 100 plus sites as a Sub-Contractor of ZTE
    Few more projects are in pipe line and Netsat is very hopeful to materialize these in near future:
