Rural Coverage

One of the easiest ways for mobile operators to increase market share and revenue is to acquire new mobile users, rather than winning existing users from competitors. Rural coverage represents a real challenge for operators though because of the lack of power grid availability, communication infrastructure and paved roads. In addition, low population densities compared to the level of telecom investment that is often required affects operation cost and the business case that can be made to extend rural coverage.

The MICT GSM solution for rural coverage is designed to address all challenges faced in rural areas.  It is optimized for power consumption and backhaul bandwidth utilization. It is also completely integrated and powered with sustainable power sources giving up to 6 days backup autonomy.

In most cases of rural coverage, satellite backhaul is considered the most reasonable option. This is why we applied effective compression techniques and local switching facilities to either voice or data traffic to reduce backhaul bill, the estimated 4kbps per call significantly reduces backhaul cost.

Since all the components of the system are built for use outdoors with very simple control, on-field maintenance activities are simplified and come with clear instructions. This allows anyone from the area, regardless of the level of education, to maintain these activities and help in corrective and preventive maintenance. From our experience we found that 80% of issues can be handled by a local worker.


Extends Existing GSM Networks to Remote Areas

It features low power, compact equipment that is optimized to overcome all challenges that operators face when deploying rural networks.

Near Zero OPEX and Dramatically Lower CAPEX

It makes telecom services profitable, even at very low ARPU levels.

Sustainable GSM Network

It significantly decreases operating costs by replacing grid power and diesel generators with solar energy.

Provides Macro Coverage

The potential coverage is up to a 10km radius.

Flexible Deployment Configurations

It is quick and easy to deploy because of the compact, all-in-one design of the lite-BTS.

Coverage on demand

The capacity and coverage can be expanded with clustering.

Remote VIP

Mobile operators usually have VIP customers who are engaged in remote activities. For example agricultural, oil & gas, mining, etc. For such companies, communication is critical, both voice and data. For mobile operators it is often hard to justify the investment to provide GSM service in such remote areas for their VIPs. However, it is often the case that VIP clients are willing to share the investment (for example pay for initial investment, part of the operation), which makes it more viable for the mobile operator.

MICT can help operators preserve the loyalty of their VIP customers by providing a cost effective GSM solution that will be affordable for both the operator and the customer. This is in terms of initial site cost and operation expenses.

Regardless of the &nbsp type of model*  that is arranged between the operator and customer, MICT will make sure that the service is delivered to a level of quality that is accepted by the operator and the customer, with a cost that makes both parties happy.

Our GSM 2G/3G and Wi-Fi solution provides high class voice and data services to end customers in remote areas, either for business or social communication. This helps to increase the productivity of the customer and raise the operator’s revenue.


Mobile operators

Preserve and increase customer loyalty.

Step a head from competitors.

A credit in term of social responsibility.

Raise up revenue


Connecting their remote business activities for better productivity.

Better environment for staff for their social communications and easy access access for other supplementary services, and tools (e.g. consultation, news, entertainments…etc).

Reduce communication bill.

* Models can be: Customer is responsible for all the remote site investment including equipment, installation, and operation, while the operator takes care of core investment. Or the customer pays for the initial cost leaving responsibility for the operation with the operator…etc.

GSM Backhaul

With the vast progression in mobile markets in terms of competition and customer demands, backhauling services represent one of the biggest challenges for mobile operators. With the global trend of extending coverage to rural areas where there is a lack of terrestrial technologies (e.g. fiber, microwave, etc), satellite communication becomes the most feasible solution for transmission. Satellite communication is also an option for Mobile Operators who work on land-locked countries where there is no other means of connecting to the Internet backbone.

We provide a very cost effective and reliable VSAT service that is specially tailored for mobile operators and service provider. Regardless of the type of application either for Remote GSM site backhaul or Internet capacity, it’s built to deliver you a high class service that helps you meet your customer expectations. You may switch between E1/T1 and IP at any time with almost zero lead time, as well as ability to increase or decrease the leased capacity.
