The versatility of ip.access small cell solutions makes them the ideal technology to use across all means of transportation be it aviation, maritime, rail and automotive. The small cells backhaul over satellite and provide the end users with a 5 bar cellular coverage at all times.
ip.access have been instrumental, particularly within the in-flight cellular communications since 2005. Our nanoBTS and E16 UMTS access points have been deployed in the thousands on board commercial and private aircraft. These link via satellite back to our ground based gateway systems (BSC and HNBGW respectively) to complete the end to end solution, managed by our mobile service provider partners.
Since deployment, these systems have enabled in-flight connectivity, including voice, SMS and data, for tens of millions of passengers. LTE is in early stages of evaluation, driven by the availability of high throughput satellite services, ever increasing customer demand for broadband speeds and the rise of the ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) culture for consuming in-flight entertainment.
Our end to end GSM and UMTS solutions similarly have been deployed in maritime scenarios, specifically for voice and data services on ferries and cruise liners. The addition of a localised software core network allows point to point calling on-board, reducing reliance on and cost of backhaul links to the gateway and core network.
