Mongolia's Incomnet expands its Gilat SkyEdge network to include cellular backhaul solution

Incomnet has added Gilat Satellite Network's SkyAbis cellular backhaul solution to its satellite communications network to serve Mongolia's mobile operators. Incomnet is one of Mongolia's largest telecommunications service providers.

Gilat's SkyAbis is a prepackaged solution for cellular backhaul, based on the SkyEdge multi-service platform. The solution enables operators to deploy hybrid networks that extend the reach of their terrestrial and cellular infrastructure to remote communities. SkyAbis features traffic optimisation and dynamic bandwidth allocation for CDMA/GSM backhaul, with much higher space-segment efficiencies when compared to SCPC.

Earlier this year Incomnet deployed a Gilat SkyEdge network, which provides toll-quality telephony to Mongolia's rural citizens as part of Incomnet's Universal Service Obligations. The network also provides interactive data networking to selected Mongolian government agencies and businesses, particularly those in the financial-services sector.

Arie Rozichner, Gilat's Regional Vice-President, Eurasia, said, "This new development with Incomnet is a good example of how Gilat partners with its customers to provide the unique solutions that fit their specific requirements. In this case Gilat combined its advanced satellite communications technology with its optimised CDMA cellular backhaul solution. This provides Incomnet with a solution that can increase its business and service offering, while opening the door to new telecommunication niches and directions."

* Incomnet is a long-standing Gilat customer, having deployed Gilat VSAT networks nationwide since 2001, when Incomnet was founded to deploy broadband VSAT networks throughout Mongolia for public telephony and interactive data networking applications. The company also provides IT consulting services and cooperates with local and international consulting organisations.
