Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq:GILT;TASE:GILT), has won a $286 million contract in Peru  with Fitel (Fondo de Inversion en Telecomunicaciones / Telecommunications Investment Fund), for telecommunications infrastructure in remote areas of Peru.  This is the largest contract ever won by the company since its inception.

Fitel’s regional initiative represents the complementary phase of the Peruvian National Fiber Backbone project, aimed to connect rural villages to broadband services. Within the framework of this phase, Gilat won the bids for three regional projects – in Huancavelica, Ayacucho and Apurimac.

These projects are BOT (Built, Operate and Transfer). The fiber-optic Transport networks will be built, operated for 1 year and transferred to the Ministry, while the Access networks based on wireless technologies will be operated for 10 years before being transferred to the Ministry.

In the frame of the Access network operation obligations, Gilat will connect about 600 public institutions to broadband services.

Gilat expects additional revenues to be generated by enabling cellular carriers to acquire network capacity to address the growing needs for voice, data, and internet in these regions.

Gilat has demonstrated, with the successful rollout of the Integracion Amazonica Loreto (IAL) project in 2014, among many others in the region, that it has the required expertise to efficiently deploy large-scale network infrastructure in the most remote, mountainous and jungle areas of Peru.

“We appreciate the continued confidence Fitel has in our ability to integrate and deliver communication solutions of all types, ” said Erez Antebi, CEO of Gilat Satellite Networks. “Gilat’s experience in challenging terrain and its ability to overcome operational obstacles are key in achieving the government objective of connecting rural villages to broadband services. We look forward to bringing communications services while contributing to the advancement of social services, education, economic development and employment in these regions.”
