Synergy Between Satellite Communications and Mobile Backhaul Markets

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 161

Mobile backhaul service is a booming market, especially now that 3G services are on the rise in various regions of the world. This trend is mainly influenced by the growing prevalence of social networking multimedia applications and wireless communications devices. Since bandwidth is a limited resource, these tools can turn out to be expensive and may slow down network performance.

Cellular backhaul offers an extremely efficient means to enhance 3G network performance. Satellite communications, especially in developing countries, provide cost-effective mobile backhaul infrastructures, making wireless telephony more accessible in remote areas. Markets where GDP is not high enough to support a large market of mobile devices and subscription packages will benefit a lot from satellite communications and backhaul services.

The growing usage of mobile telephony, the rapidly evolving types of mobile usages like SMS and flexible bandwidth plans, and government support for satellite broadband expansion at consumer level have improved the growth prospects of the mobile backhaul market and satellite communications usage. Backhaul infrastructures make it easier for satellite communications carriers to integrate cellular services with data transmission via various hybrid terrestrial and wireless networks.

There is a growing demand for 3G and 4G networks in both developed and underdeveloped countries. Potential market niches are opening up faster than ever, as seen in rapidly growing presence of the social media delivered through mobile platforms. These developments have recently impacted the political environment in various Middle Eastern countries like Egypt and Libya, which also influences the choice of means to facilitate wireless data delivery.

3G infrastructures are being rolled out at a fast rate across various countries in Africa and other developing economies. The rising popularity of iPhones and more attractive enhancements in Blackberry and other wireless communication services strengthen the demand for 3G mobile backhaul and satellite communications solutions aimed at cellular network carriers. But can the industry provide sufficient network capacity to 3G base stations?

If we take a look at expected usage patterns over the next 2-3 years, we can say that 3G mobile broadband traffic growth will be highly visible in the following areas:

*metropolitan centres - the home of tach-savvy people*hot spots like resorts, mining camps where almost all tourists want to stay connected wirelessly * distant rural areas with no or little access to traditional telecommunication or Internet services

Governments of various countries have expressed their support to mobile backhaul via satellite communications. Villages and towns in outback regions cannot afford the large infrastructures needed to support seamless communications via broadband connectivity. Due to the lack of terrestrial infrastructures to deliver Internet services in many underdeveloped areas, many telecommunications carriers will continue to rely on satellite backhaul services.

I write about satellite communications trends and latest technological developments in the field of wireless voice and data communications.
