XipLink Expands Support for Mission-Critical, CBRS Networks
Monday, March 09, 2020 | Comments

XipLink announced expanded support of mobile backhaul optimization for mission critical and Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) networks.

Using optimization and transmission control protocol (TCP) acceleration, XipLink’s solution will boost Long Term Evolution and 5G by reducing mobile backhaul costs while simultaneously increasing download speeds at the mobile base station. The technology enables transport of increased customer traffic over satellite or wireless links while simultaneously improving the quality of experience (QoE) for downstream subscribers.

With user-friendly solutions that are used by more than 50 mobile network operators (MNO), XipLink is extending backhaul optimization to the following markets.

With human lives on the line, mission critical and public-safety networks demand new levels of capacity and reliability to support the growing needs of paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police, firefighters and military personnel. Effective communications that remain clear and consistent during catastrophic events, such as natural disasters or terrorist attacks, is vital for first responders.

Emergency and public-safety networks benefit from XipLink’s optimized LTE/5G mobile backhaul technology by improving download times and rapid access to essential resources. The recent addition of traffic steering automated policies, leveraging XipLink’s existing link balancing and bonding capability, effectively broadens first responder path selection to reduce risk and increase connection quality.

Thus far, XipLink has successfully empowered several public-safety networks in North America. This optimized solution provides first responders with enhanced levels of backhaul efficiency and quality of service (QoS). Aside from providing necessary and life-saving communications, XipLink has also reduced operating expenditures due to its optimization capabilities that were purposely designed for the mobile environment.

“First responders require reliable communications during critical times,” said XipLink CEO Jack Waters. “We are committed to offering innovative backhaul that facilitates efficient network traffic movement while also improving the quality of experience required for the public-safety community during emergencies and various other crises.”

With the FCC’s approval of full-scale commercial shared spectrum now available in the CBRS band, service providers and enterprises can take advantage to extend coverage and capacity. By doing so, companies can create their own public or private LTE and 5G networks with a low barrier to entry.

CBRS offers 150 MHz of spectrum in the 3.5 GHz band that is dynamically between incumbent and commercial users. This allows major cable operators, wireless internet service providers (WISPs), MNOs and other diverse enterprises to now deploy LTE and eventually 5G. XipLink is paving the way for the delivery of CBRS backhaul at a lower operating expense while providing higher throughput and improved availability.

“XipLink is excited that CBRS is ready for commercial deployment,” said Tim Peyla, senior director, business development at XipLink. “Network operators using XipLink in underserved or rural communities can now increase the quality of experience for subscribers while reducing backhaul capacity cost.”
