Intelsat and MNO to Bring High-Speed Mobile Connectivity to Rural and Remote Parts of Germany
Providing High Speed Mobile Service in Hard-to-Reach Areas
This Mobile Network Operator (MNO) already offers LTE service to approximately 95% of the German population. But over 800,000 Germans who live outside easy-to-connect areas don’t currently have access to high-speed mobile service. With the goal of connecting every subscriber with reliable, high-speed connectivity (in compliance with the targets set by the Bundesnetzagentur, the German regulator for telecommunications), the MNO needed a reliable alternative to network backhaul technologies like microwave and fiber. They needed a solution that would be cost-effective and easy to deploy, no matter how
challenging the terrain.
