Sevis LTE backhaul on Eutelsat’s KA-SAT

April 9, 2015

Sevis Systems, a developer of intelligent backhaul optimisation technology, has successfully validated its highly effective and flexible platform for backhaul services on the KA-SAT satellite operated by Eutelsat Communications. The new solution offers a more affordable and optimised satellite backhaul service to specialised satellite service providers delivering end-to-end backhaul bandwidth to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). Sevis and Eutelsat are now offering the solution across KA-SAT’s entire footprint of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

These new services are ideal for delivering 3G and LTE to remote or rural locations without access to terrestrial backhaul. The ability for KA-SAT to provide backhaul connectivity between a core network and the access infrastructure at a remote site is suitable for mobile operators and Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) for emergency services and civil defence. The Sevis integrated solution also allows service providers to develop and deliver innovative backhaul services defined by software. For example, TCP acceleration, data traffic offload and overflow can leverage Sevis´ multi-layer optimisation algorithms to efficiently route traffic and integrate satellite and terrestrial backhaul.

Tim Peyla, VP Business Development at Sevis Systems, said, “Our highly scalable optimisers, purposely built for High Throughput Satellite, together with our software-defined service features, enable service providers to efficiently deliver current and future backhaul services. When combined with the power and coverage of Eutelsat’s KA-SAT, the result is a backhaul solution that achieves the lowest possible cost to deliver carrier-class backhaul services over satellite.”
