SD-WAN and satellite – how MNOs and telcos can enjoy the best of both worlds
Today's demand for network availability, agility, and scalability leads MNOs and telcos to operate multiple access links for redundancy and load balancing which introduces a range of critical networking challenges.
The challenges mainly occur due to complicated processes of bandwidth management and traffic prioritization. These challenges are amplified in scenarios where several access link types exist (fiber, microwave and satellite), each having different capacity characteristics.
SD-WAN handles the above-mentioned challenges by allowing intelligent traffic routing among the available links without human intervention.
Spacecom is one of the first satellite operators to provide a satellite-based SD-WAN solution. Combining SD-WAN, terrestrial and satellite links, strengthens network resiliency and service availability, enables business continuity, offers flexibility and improves customer satisfaction.
The combined solution mitigates network complexity by:
So what are the main benefits this solution offers?
Spacecom provides its services via the advanced AMOS-17 High Throughput Satellite, specially designed for the African market, holds powerful C-band beams best suited for cellular networks and local Telcos. Moreover, its superb location at 17E degrees, right over the heart of Africa, allows a perfect looking angle and the lowest latency performance of a satellite in the African region.
Satellite links, which have superior service availability, are most suitable for increasing network diversity to maintain high quality of service.
Combining Spacecom’s AMOS-17 digital HTS satellite with its SD-WAN solution allows telcos and MNOs to enjoy the best of both worlds.
The main takeaway for domestic and international enterprises
Mitigating network complexity by using a central management system and low to a zero-touch provisioning process. It also optimizes application performance due to smart steering, compression, acceleration, forward error correction, Packet Order Correction and guaranteed best-in-class user experience.
Spacecom’s SD-WAN is the latest innovation under its managed services portfolio.
Spacecom, a global satellite service provider, also offers its customers and partners a number of added-value services such as turnkey projects, B.O.T projects, managed services, end-to-end network planning and deployment including Satcom, networking and power solutions.
