[Via Satellite 02-26-2016] Wireless link optimization specialist XipLink has received orders from six cellular service providers for the company’s Advanced Cellular Compression (ACC) features in order to roll out highly optimized cellular backhaul networks over satellite.

Three of the customers are in Asia. One, a large telco, is using ACC to deliver an efficient vanguard network using Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and broadband data rates. Another is using XipLink appliances for 3G backhaul over satellite to mitigate explosive growth occurring from fixed, land-based locations, along with XipLink’s Hub Optimizations (XHO) to further reduce HTTP traffic over the Radio Access Network (RAN). The third has expanded its existing XipLink network after a one-year positive experience, gaining a 50 percent call capacity benefit for 3G voice services with no degradation of voice quality while improving packet-per-second throughput on their satellite modems using ACC’s header compression and packet coalescing features.

XipLink’s other three customers consist of a leading maritime voice provider, a large U.S. cellular service provider, and a global top 10 telco in Latin America.
