Gilat Selected by Leading Latin American Operator to Provide Corporate Connectivity for National Post Office


21 November 2011


Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. has been selected by a leading Latin American operator for the delivery of a full scale SkyEdge II network comprised of hubs and VSATs. The network will provide national connectivity to the Latin American country's national post office.


As part of the project, Gilat will supply the national operator with a fully managed network connecting approximately 7,000 branch offices with SkyEdge II VSATs. The SkyEdge II network will also be integrated into the MPLS backbone as well as the operator's network management system.


The network will serve to drive the growing need for postal services across the country, supporting local and regional communities with essential communications and transactional connectivity.


Russell Ribeiro, Gilat's Regional Vice-President of Latin America said, "The selection of our VSAT technology for such a sizable project is indicative of the long-term trust and confidence in Gilat by the region's tier-1 operator. Our SkyEdge II system was selected following a rigorous public tender, having provided an excellent Total Cost of Ownership solution by offering the most efficient solution for allocating bandwidth across remote locations, economically serving the different traffic requirements across network sites."
