There are today more than 8 billion mobile phone subscribers worldwide. A large number of these subscribers are in developing countries, and many of them live in low-income remote rural areas.
Mixed satellite-cellular solutions can be used to reach these subscribers and are well-suited to address the challenges of these populations.
With a proper engineering, available solutions can ensure adequate end-to-end Quality of Service with a proper control of the Total Cost of Ownership. They can therefore lead to profitaable mobile operations even in low-revenue rural areas.
Cell & Sat designed innovative architectures relying on optimised satellite backhauling, innovative energy reduction techniques, and other features to minimise the CAPEX and OPEX associated with cellular coverage in rural areas
At the cross-roads of cellular and satellite technologies, Cell & Sat proposes to operators consulting services including business analysis, network audit, network design, and support to procurement activities and field operations.
Cell & Sat also participate in strategic evaluations of emerging 5G cellular innovations, as well as "New Space" development of satellite constellations and stratospheric platforms, with a particular interest for the development of hybrid terrestrial & space networks
