World’s Most Cost-effective Remote Communications Solution offers Asia-Pacific Operators New Revenue-Generating Potential in Current Global Financial Downturn


Macau, 18 November 2008 – A groundbreaking presentation, entitled: “The World’s Most Cost-Effective Solution for Remote Communities”, will be delivered by leading provider of cost cutting solutions for wireless and satellite service providers, Altobridge, during the Mobile Asia Congress 2008 in Macau, 18-19 November. The paper offers operators revolutionary solutions with major cost-cutting implications for the delivery of profitable voice and data services to small, remote domestic and enterprise communities throughout Asia and the Far East.

Delivered by the company’s CTO, Richard Lord, this important paper will be presented in the Seminar Theatre (D31, Main Exhibition Floor), on Tuesday 18th November at 17.15hrs.

Richard Lord said, “Our Split-BSC Architecture is currently being deployed by Maxis and MobiCom in Malaysia and Mongolia, respectively. We consider it to be the most operationally efficient method of satellite backhaul on the market today. It frees up vital capacity by restricting the use of expensive satellite bandwidth to ‘On-Demand’ instead of ‘Always-On’ operations, and offers mobile operators real opportunities to reduce their transmission costs, even when dealing with small communities of between 50 and 500 subscribers.”

Lord’s presentation will give an overview of the company’s Remote Communities solution, which combines Altobridge’s other technology breakthrough in Local Connectivity, which keeps all local calls local and removes further transmission costs incurred if local calls are unnecessarily backhauled, with the Split-BSC Architecture. The combined solution is seen as a breakthrough in remote communications transmission.

The paper will explain how both technologies significantly reduce satellite backhaul costs to and from remote base station sites, providing MNOs with a viable business case for connecting isolated communities and remote enterprises using satellite backhaul. It will draw on actual case study material from its deployments with an Asian MNO.

The paper will consider how:
• By combining on-demand satellite backhaul with local connectivity, transmission costs are no longer an obstacle to deploying mobile telephony to remote groups;
• Thousands of US$ can be saved, per BTS site, using this combined technology;
• The erlang efficiency of backhaul increases as the number of sites increases, even if their population sizes decrease.

“Add our Local Connectivity into the mix – technology which is now licensed to leading wireless network vendors to provide local call switching across base station portfolios - and our combined Remote Communities solution provides MNOs, throughout Asia with an opportunity to cut transmission costs even further. At a time of global financial instability, this surely is the right time to deploy such a system,” Lord concluded.
