Network Backup& Business Continuity

Minimize the Business Impact
of Terrestrial Network Failures

Most mobile network operators (MNOs) use terrestrial backhaul solutions to connect their base stations to the core network. However, in the event of a network outage, either due to a natural disaster or an inadvertent fiber cut, business continuity for your customers depends on the quality of your network backup solution. In order to minimize business impact, a backup network must be set up.

Satellite-based cellular network backup provides numerous benefits to MNOs. Since the satellite network completely bypasses your primary terrestrial infrastructure, it provides both a reliable and easy-to-deploy broadband solution for serving affected areas.

Gilat’s satellite-based network backup solution allows MNOs to deploy a VSAT network for cellular backhaul in any location, with modest power and infrastructure requirements. VSATs for cellular backhaul can be installed at either a fixed site or on a mobile platform. As soon as a network failure is detected, the backup satellite network kicks in and takes over all backhauling activities in order to preserve business continuity.

In emergency response scenarios, our Cellular on Wheels (CoW) solution, including a VSAT and a cellular base station, can be easily transported to the required location. We also provide lightweight flyaway terminals that can be delivered by helicopter or carried in a backpack or suitcase.

Top reasons for choosing Gilat’s Network Backup & Business Continuity solution:

  • High-speed network backup over satellite ensures business continuity for affected customers
  • Fast and cost-effective deployment at fixed or mobile sites
  • Completely independent of the terrestrial network with no single points of failure
  • Instant and immediate switchover to the satellite link
