Media Format:
GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) cellular service currently accounts for approximately 80% of worldwide cellular traffic.  While GSM is one of the most pervasive technologies in the metropolitan mobile communications market today, it is also the standard of choice in developing markets. There are several reasons compelling today’s carriers to expand to remote territory:

  • Expand the market opportunity into previously unserviceable areas
  • Extend coverage footprint for metropolitan subscribers that travel into remote areas
  • Satisfy regulatory requirements - many governments require carriers to cover remote and sparsely populated areas as a requirement for licenses in the cities.
This paper by iDirect is intended to provide a description of the technical requirements for GSM cellular backhaul over satellite and to outline why the iDirect solution as it as it applies to this application, is well positioned to cost effectively and efficiently satisfy these requirements.
