The Universal Need to Stay Connected Wirelessly Drives Growth

Satellite backhaul for cellular services is a growing application for satellite technology to help expand cellular coverage over difficult or remote locations. Satellite technology is also used for cellular backhaul for emergency communications (to restore cellular communications), over-burdened events and gatherings (to off-load some cellular traffic), and temporary solutions (until traditional cell-towers can be deployed). Thus, satellite technology is used for a number of unique applications to enable cellular technology when traditional network infrastructure cannot meet demand.

Executive Summary

•With the world’s total 2G, 3G, and 4G coverage continuing to expand rapidly, there are still many remote regions which are not yet covered have geographical barriers to coverage or do not make economic sense for carriers to expand there. These regions will require satellite services for connectivity to communicate.
•With the world’s growing mobile work force, particularly in mining, drilling, and other remote activities, satellite connectivity in the form of mobile satellite enabled cell towers is quickly growing in importance for the enterprise. This can increase safety and efficiency for operations in locations which are not covered by traditional cellular technology. Additionally, unlike other mobile satellite technologies, this allows users to use their mobile cell phones, which are far less expansive than satellite phones.
•Frost & Sullivan anticipates satellite backhaul to continue to aid cellular coverage throughout the world, with a CAGR of X% between 2012 and 2017.
•Regions such as APAC, LA, and ROW will see the strongest growth due to their low cellular POP coverage, less robust land-line infrastructure to connect cell towers, and more remote locations which require coverage.

CEO’s Perspective

1. Satellite backhaul is expanding in remote locations in Africa and Asia.
2. Europe and North America will see low adoption for satellite backhaul due to their high cellular POP coverage.
3. As developing nations expand their coverage, the need to cover everyone increases satellite backhaul appeal.
4. Satellite backhaul can be cheaper than fiber or microwave in some extreme geographical locations.
5. Satellite is often used to enable mobile cell towers for emergency use.

Market Overview—Definitions

•VSAT: VSATs (very small aperture terminal) are small, light weight, satellite terminals which can be used to connect a variety of devices/equipment with high-speed data and voices services. VSAT is currently the most popular technology for connecting cellular antennas, both stationary and mobile.
•Backhaul: Backhaul in this research refers to the technology which is used to connect a cellular communications tower. The technology used for backhaul can vary (microwave, fibber, and satellite are often used).
•Cellular: Cellular 2G, 3G, and 4G technologies are used to connect mobile devices like smart phones, tablets, and laptops with data and voice capabilities. These technologies use a backhaul technology to connect the cellular towers which are scattered throughout each region.
