Speedcast Receives Backhaul Contract for Mexico
Speedcast has received a 12-month cellular backhaul contract with what it calls the second largest mobile operator in Mexico, but did not give the operator’s name. The company said its managed, end-to-end cellular backhaul solution will help the mobile operator expand its network and provide connectivity to sites where other type of communication is unavailable.
With Speedcast’s cellular backhaul service, the operator will have access to an extensive network of networks that includes terrestrial MPLS, LTE, 5G and satellite capacity. Speedcast offers a pay-as-you-grow business model, which it says will help the operator cost-effectively expand its mobile coverage into new markets.
“We are extending a long-standing partnership with one of the top U.S. mobile operators into this new market,” Speedcast EVP of Enterprise and Emerging Markets Erwan Emilian said. “Cellular service is an excellent way to reach remote and rural populations, and we look forward to empowering one of the leading operators in the Mexican market with our highly reliable backhaul service.”
