Vodacom DRC

Replacing VSAT gives quality improvement and rapid ROI for Vodacom

Vodacom had been using satellite (VSAT) in the Democratic Republic of Congo to backhaul remote cellular traffic. As well as huge operational costs, traffic performance was compromised by the latency of the VSAT service affecting the BTS-BSC backhaul protocol and causing RACH/SDCHH assignment failures. Using the Aprisa XE point-to-point microwave link instead greatly improved both traffic quality and quantity, as well as providing Vodacom with a return on investment of just a few months.
