Gilat to Provide the Ground Network for China Satcom's ChinaSat-18

Nov.1, 2018

Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. announced today that Gilat's ground network will be provided for China Satcom's ChinaSat-18 (CS-18). The nationwide Ka-band coverage, now to be provided by CS-18 and ChinaSat-16 (CS-16), will be uniquely supported by Gilat's single platform supporting multiple applications all over China.

China Satcom's CS-18 Ka-band will be launched in mid-2019, thus completing the company's Ka HTS coverage over all of China, which is critical for broadband applications requiring continuous service.

Gilat's multi-application platform, SkyEdge II-c, has been deployed in China over CS-16 to provide IFC, rural broadband, cellular backhaul and maritime applications. With the launch of CS-18, Gilat will deliver Ka-band high throughput and highly efficient connectivity across the rest of China.

"Gilat is grateful for the long-term relationship with China Satcom and for the continued trust in our technology indicated by the expansion of Gilat's platform for commercialization of ChinaSat-18," said Jun Xiang, General Manager, Gilat China. "This achievement is another step in materializing Gilat's HTS broadband strategy worldwide and further supports Gilat's continued strategic focus on the Chinese market."
