Comtech Telecommunications Corp.´s Canadian subsidiary Memotec and cell solutions provider ip.access have completed joint performance testing.
During end-to-end tests involving an emulated satellite link, ip.access´ E40 LTE small cell, and Memotec´s WX WAN acceleration and optimization device, end to end optimization and interoperability performed flawlessly and achieved 28 times faster bit rates than possible without optimization.
The high latency and jitter of satellite links usually limit bit rates at values much lower than those advertised for LTE services — even when the satellite link used as backhaul advertises high bit rates on its own.
The joint solution tested by Memotec and ip.access allows mobile operators to deliver LTE services to isolated rural communities and enterprise sites using satellite backhaul links, without sacrificing the appeal and performance of modern LTE networks, and at a lower cost.
Headquartered in the United Kingdom, ip.access has been creating and deploying small cell solutions for more than fifteen years. The company has products and solutions live in over 100 customers´ networks around the world.
Memotec Inc., a subsidiary of Comtech EF Data Corp., provides solutions to Telecommunication Operators, Government Agencies and Premium Enterprises to manage, optimize and accelerate services and applications across satellite links.
