|YateBTS SatSite |
SatSite is a GSM/GPRS outdoor macrocell base station for rural and urban areas, with an IP-based backhaul, and is software-upgradable to LTE (autumn 2015).
SatSite uses software-defined radio and generic chipsets instead of common FPGA or DSP chips, making it an intelligent RAN component acting as BTS-BSC. This allows it to communicate directly with YateUCN, the core network solution that handles all the MSC/VLR/SGSN/GGSN functionalities. For 2.5G, SatSite is powered by YateBTS, the software implementation of GSM/GPRS functions and protocols of the BTS and BSC.
Features and benefits
SatSite is a software-defined base station using generic hardware - off-the-shelf Intel chipset and BladeRF SDR board and software - YateBTS is a Linux application based on Yate. This reduces costs associated with equipment, power supply, and civil infrastructure.
A key feature of YateBTS SatSite is the 3G / 4G / AirMax backhaul modem that supports an easy extension of mobile coverage into remote areas.
SatSite provides low-rate speech encoding to reduce backhaul loading, making it ideal for areas with sparse infrastructure.
SatSite uses tower mounted boosters, allowing carriers to build flexible infrastructures.
SatSite's unified nature (doesn't require a BSC) reduces the cost of service, maintenance and support in both rural and urban environments.
Based on commodity hardware, SatSite can be serviced locally, in the carrier's operating country.
