Gilat Satellite Network

After closing deals in Uruguay and The Philipines, Israel’s Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., a worldwide marketer of satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced that a Telecommunications Service Provider (TSP) in Latin America selected its High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) Multi-Spot Beam solution to provide Ka-band broadband services.

The TSP, which recently acquired five spot beams totaling 2.3 GHz of capacity, intends to use its new HTS network to provide high-speed Internet service for multiple applications such as consumer, enterprise, mobility and airborne.

According to the terms of the agreement, Gilat will provide a SkyEdge II-c hub with multiple network segments, VSAT terminals and related equipment. Additionally, Gilat will provide cloud-based Network Operation Center (NOC) management services. Roll-out of this project commenced earlier this quarter.

“Winning this bid bears testimony to the fact that our technology supports multiple applications over the same platform very effectively, ” stated Russell Ribeiro, Gilat’s Regional Vice President in Latin America. “We believe that our strong local presence and support, combined with our knowledge and experience in network management, will provide our partner with a strong competitive advantage over the long term.”

The news comes just a few days after Delnet International Corp., a Philippine communications solutions provider, selected Gilat to provide a Ku-band SkyEdge II VSAT network for Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT), the largest telecommunications company in the Philippines.

The Project will utilize Gilat’s SkyEdge II hub previously installed at an earth station in Pampanga, Philippines and operated by PLDT-subsidiary, CIGNAL, a provider of DTH TV services. Gilat will also supply SkyEdge II Access and IP VSATs, especially commissioned for the PLDT project. The VSAT network will offer a wide range of voice and data interfaces to meet Enterprise connectivity requirements countrywide.

Earlier this month systems integrator OpenSky ordered an initial VSAT network for ANTEL, the state-owned telecommunications company of Uruguay.

ANTEL intends to use its new VSAT network to provide Internet access to schools as well as services for enterprise and defense-related entities across the country.

Gilat develops and markets a wide range of high-performance satellite ground segment equipment and VSATs, with an increasing focus on the consumer and Ka-band market. In addition, the company states that it enables mobile SOTM (Satellite-on-the-Move) solutions providing low-profile antennas, next generation solid-state power amplifiers and modems. Gilat also provides managed network and satellite-based services for rural telephony and Internet access via its subsidiaries in Peru and Colombia.
