Wireless coverage and capacity has always been the focus for dense urban environments. What about rural access? According to a United Nation Report¹, more than half of the world’s population still does not have access to internet. The primary challenge for reaching the rural areas is overcoming the lack of potential revenue per square mile. The Return of Investment (ROI) of a wireless infrastructures seems unimaginable with the thinly populated areas. How can mobile operators reach the unreached cost effectively?
Dali Wireless addresses this challenge with its next generation rural coverage solution which enables cost effective network sharing and Infrastructure as a service (IaaS).
Based on the SDN Radio Router™ technology, Dali’s rural coverage solution enables a mobile operator’s capacity to be dynamically multicasted over multiple rural sites. This enables mobile operator’s precious spectrum to be utilized efficiently.
In a multiple mobile operators scenario, multiple operators signal can be digitally processed and routed to the desired rural locations through software. The ability to centralize multiple mobile operators’ base station resources in a local fiber hub or data center, and deliver the signal to multiple rural areas over long distance increases the revenue per square mile of such system.
Compared to a dedicated single rural network for each mobile operator, Dali’s rural coverage solution enables a faster ROI, and lowers the barrier for entry for mobile operators and neutral hosts.
Dali Wireless rural coverage solutions works with existing Radio Access Networks (RANs) and the virtual RAN (vRAN).
