Legba and SS7Ware, two innovative companies in the open-source mobile industry, launch YateBTS SatSite. SatSite is a commercial 2.5G network solution intended for rural networks, M2M applications, remote locations and private networks.Read more
The SatSite increases the ARPU by lowering the cost for installation, configuration and management. It provides GSM and LTE from the same equipment, decreasing the costs for backhaul and site installation.
YateUCN, the unified core network based on Yate, provides roaming support via Diameter or SS7-MAP for SatSite networks in any LTE, GSM or mixed configuration.
All Yate-based products run on Linux. This makes them easy to manage and service, and reduces the need for training.
Redundancy and load balancing
SatSites, YateUCN servers and YateHSS/HLR servers are connected through many-to-many relationships, providing automatic load balancing and eliminating single points of failure.
The LTE SatSite Model 142 provides up to 20 Watts of LTE or GSM output power with a total power consumption of less than 80 Watts, or up to 10 Watts with a power consumption of just 65 Watts.
The SatSite can use almost any IP backhaul to suit any network architecture, and can run as either an LTE eNodeB (YateENB) or a GSM/GPRS BSS (YateBTS) using the same YateUCN core network.
