Comtech EF Data And Supernet Successfully Implement 3G-Ready Satellite Backhaul Network

Comtech EF Data Corp. and Supernet Limited, Pakistan's leading satellite system integrator and service provider, announced today the successful migration of the entire 2G TDM satellite backhaul network to an all IP optimized backhaul solution to support current 2G/2.5G and future 3G operations of a leading Mobile Network Operator in Pakistan. The contract was awarded to Supernet after it had successfully tested and proven the technologies and processes for seamless transition to an end-to-end IP satellite network by utilizing Comtech EF Data’s award-winning and field-proven mobile backhaul solution. This migrated satellite 3G network will carry more than 500 Mbps of voice and data traffic. The migration to a 3G network will be carried out by simply enabling the optional IP Packet Processor of Comtech EF Data’s CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem with DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier®, and most importantly, without increasing the satellite bandwidth while maintaining the service quality. The CDM-625 modems were originally deployed by this operator for a 2G network.

All of the Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in Pakistan have utilized satellite for their core backbones’ primary links and for access links to extend 2G/2.5G service coverage into rural and remote areas. Currently, the total mobile backhaul traffic carried over multiple C- and Ku-band transponders is approximately 1.5 Gbps. With the recent preparation to launch 3G services in densely populated urban areas, the traffic volume is expected to more than double.

With more than 18 years of experience, Supernet has designed, deployed, and maintained satellite based mobile networks including those for four of the largest mobile networks in the country carrying over 1 Giga Bits of mobile traffic over multiple satellites. The core technology in Supernet’s satellite mobile network is designed around Comtech EF Data’s mobile backhaul solutions, including the CDM-625 / CDM-625A DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier modems, the integrated WAN optimization processor and the CXU RAN optimization devices which have repeatedly proven to provide the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) without degrading service quality. In this particular case, a network upgrade and migration to a 3G-ready network was achieved without replacing the multi-million dollar 2G platform investment.
