Why 3G, 4G, and LTE Cellular Networks Fail During Disasters and Crowded Events

By | News, Industry News | No Comments

Cellular or mobile wireless network usage has increased at a phenomenal rate over the years.  This caused cellular networks to face unprecedented challenges, especially concerning disasters and large crowded events.  During these types of events, it is best to assume that mobile connectivity will fail; in other words, you will likely NOT be able to make a phone call, send a text message, or use social media to communicate with others.  With growing numbers of people owning cellular devices, from smart phones to tablet PCs, cellular network failure is more likely to occur.  Sporting events, concerts, and political protests typically overload available capacity on cellular networks.  To add to the stress on cellular towers, sudden peaks in data usage that takes place in disasters and crowed events further causes 3G, 4G, and LTE cellular networks to fail.

A Deeper Look at Failure in Mobile Wireless/ Cellular Networks

Cellular towers are designed to handle a specific data carrying capacity.  Particularly, each cell tower is intended to accommodate a set number of calls per second for a given geographic area. Factors that determine the capacity for mobile wireless network include 1) cumulative capacity of the protocol and spectrum in the region 2) available backhaul bandwidth at the cell tower site and 3) physical capacity of the network equipment/ gear.  To illustrate, the mobile wireless network for a particular area (city or stadium) is created for approximately 5,000 simultaneous users, however during a large event, there could be up to 15,000 users on the network.  With 3 times the magnitude on demand, 3G, 4G and LTE connectivity becomes overloaded and unavailable.  To cope, many stadiums that plan for large crowds, increase cellular mobile wireless network capacity by installing more cell towers.  Major network carriers have already spent billions of dollars increasing capacity and upgrading their networks and will continue to do so over the next decade.  However, the accelerated growth of mobile data traffic will continue to be a growing issue, especially in the aftermath of a disaster or emergency event.

Failed Overcrowded cell towersSignificance to Public Safety and Emergency Management

Public safety and emergency management are critical functions of the state government.  In response to emergency and disaster events, access to reliable communication is vital.  In emergency events, cellular network operators (such as AT&T, Verizon and more) request, “Customers to use text or email to free up voice capacity for public safety officials on the scene.”  Because telecommunications networks simply can’t cope with the sharp increase in call volume in a disaster or crowded event, first responders and those in public safety and emergency management must be prepared to use alternative forms of communications.  Simply put, mobile wireless networks become unreliable during and after a disaster or emergency situation.

Reliable Communications via Satellite and Cellular Connectivity

Communication via cellular networks has proven to be unreliable, especially after a natural or manmade disaster.  First responder teams require access to instant high speed communications, regardless of where they are.  With cell towers expected to be overloaded, public safety and emergency management teams require the best in telecommunications technology.  Satellite internet, phone and data provide just that, however it is best when connectivity can be accessed when on the go.  Cell on Wheels (COWS), or what some call Satellite Internet Communications Trailers, offer just what emergency management and first responder teams require.  This technology allows fast connectivity to vital information anywhere and anytime, making it ideal for disaster recovery, emergency response, or for crowded events.  Satellite communications trailers should be rugged, self-enclosed, with an intelligent I/O panel, providing users with simple to operate controls to power, tower scene lighting, heat/ air conditioning, and air compressors/pneumatics.

Satellite Vehicle Integration – High Speed Internet, Phone and Data

When emergency management and first responders require high speed satellite communications on the go; full satellite vehicle integration is a great option to consider.  With a VSAT satellite internet, phone and data system, integrated to almost any vehicle (including SUV, truck, bus, RV or mobile command center), critical communications is available with the push of a button.  Satellite vehicle integration systems establish an uplink at a moment’s notice, therefore transforming any vehicle into a high-tech mobile command center, making it perfect for emergency and disaster response.

Overcome VPN over Satellite Latency Enjoy High Speed Networks

Overcome VPN over Satellite Latency – Enjoy High Speed Networks

Satellite communications with earth reflecting in solar panelsEnjoy High Speed Performance

 

Latency – Satellite Signal Propagation Delay

When it comes to satellite internet communications, one oftentimes hears the term “latency”. This is a widely discussed topic, as it describes the delay related to the transmission of information over a satellite network. With satellite networks, there is an inherent round-trip delay of approximately 1⁄2 second for a typical geo-stationary satellite circuits. This lag in satellite networks in other words is called a “propagation delay”, causing performance issues in satellite communications. Propagation delay is a result of physical laws that cannot be overcome except through a number of proprietary techniques.

VPN Over Satellite Internet

It is known in the satellite industry that running a VPN (virtual private network) over a satellite network is not an ideal configuration. The reason is that VPNs are encrypted requiring a high-bandwidth, low-latency network to function efficiently. However, satellite networks typically suffer high latencies due to the long distance satellite signals must travel; resulting in data speeds reduced by as much as 50-75%.

Mark Davison, President of Squire Tech Solutions notes, “that 10 seconds of data would then take 15 seconds; leading to that 50% to 75% penalty; therefore negatively affecting data throughput”.  Although satellite technology has become really good at “protocol spoofing” with smart boxes to compensate for the effects of satellite space segment latency, the delay still exists for VPN over Satellite systems; due to the need for encryption of data.

Solutions to Satellite Internet Latency for VPN

Mr. Davison of Squire Tech Solutions states that there are two common solutions that the satellite internet industry has designed to reduce latency penalty for VPN over satellite. The first solution is for the VPN to send packets of information with encrypted header information (with un-encrypted data). This solution works perfectly fine for some operations; those that do not have highly sensitive information and do not require a secure network. However this solution is not the safest or most secure solution for operations that has sensitive data being transferred. The second solution to increase the performance of VPN over satellite is to have the packet of information transferred into another encrypted packet to ensure all information is safe and secure.

As a top provider of secure and reliable internet network solutions to government agencies and hospitals, Squire Tech Solutions is a proud proponent of solution #2. This allows a VPN over satellite system to be at high performance speeds while offering the security that is pertinent for many operations.

Delivering High Throughput VPN over Satellite

Squire Tech uses innovative satellite technology to deliver high performing throughput for VPN over satellite. The Squire Tech VPN over Satellite internet system is designed to serve operations that depend on:

  • High satellite internet throughput/ Maximum bandwidth capacity
  • Full security with safely encrypted data
  • Checksum – error detection and correction to ensure security
  • Low satellite network latency

Squire Tech offers the best solution to the increasing demand for broadband VPN services over satellite networks. Squire Tech is the name behind helping local and federal government agencies and hospitals gain access to higher performing VPN over satellite networks.

“For any agency that needs VPN security with high data throughput, this is the only way to go”, states Mark Davison, President of Squire Tech Solutions.
