NITRO RAN Optimizer Solution Debuts from Thaicom

Thaicom Public Company Limited has introduced a series of Radio Access Network (RAN) optimizers to enable satellite service providers to cost-effectively optimize high-throughput 4G/LTE data and voice traffic to unserved and underserved areas using a single-box solution.

Thaicom is one of the leading providers of cellular backhaul over satellite service to Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in the APAC region.  With the introduction of the RAN optimizers NITRO30 and NITRO100, Thaicom is rounding out its end-to-end cellular backhaul service portfolio.

The Thaicom NITRO30 and NITRO100 cellular backhaul optimizers enhance IP traffic over Radio Access Networks (RAN) for improved service quality and boost network performance of 4G/LTE cellular networks and increase throughput by up to 50 percent depending on traffic.  The solution helps Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) gain from bandwidth usage efficiency and reduced backhaul costs by a significant margin. 

Patompob (Nile) Suwansiri, CCO, Thaicom Public Company Limited, noted that cellular backhaul has been a market of high growth for Thaicom customers across Asia Pacific. The company's IPSTAR broadband satellite system, in combination with the firm's customized solutions on an end-to-end basis, has allowed cellular operators to expand their service coverage area and increase subscribers cost-effectively in the past.  With the introduction of this new series of NITRO Radio Area Network optimizers the company can now complete Thaicom’s end-to-end service delivery model for cellular backhaul and add value for customers in this market.
