Wavestream Introduces CellEdge, a Breakthrough Small Cell over Satellite Solution Specifically Designed for Unserved Rural Areas

– Advanced functionality enables the cost-effective delivery of service to unserved areas with a population as small as several thousand people, with cost reductions of up to 80% –

February 4, 2014 — Wavestream Corporation, a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today the availability of CellEdge, an integrated small cell over satellite solution designed specifically for unserved rural areas.

Wavestream has leveraged its extensive expertise in rural cellular backhaul to provide an affordable, end-to-end solution. CellEdge provides:

  • The ability to deliver cost-effective 2G and 3G cellular services to unserved areas;
  • 80W total average power draw including both the small cell and VSAT in a typical configuration, significantly lowering capital expenditures in the terminal and solar power generation;
  • Optimization of satellite bandwidth via high efficiency algorithms and a set of efficient voice/data compression techniques that can reduce satellite OPEX by up to 80%.

“In the past, mobile operators have been faced with prohibitive expense levels for providing cellular connectivity to unserved rural areas with a population of as few as several thousand people,” said Erez Antebi, CEO of Wavestream Satellite Networks. “Now with CellEdge, operators have a unique solution which can significantly reduce capital and operating expenditures, enabling them to provide cost-effective services to even the most outlying rural areas.”
