Gilat and Thaicom launch Ipstar in Asia-Pac

A new satellite service being launched by Gilat Satellite Networks and Thaicom aims to enhance broadband connectivity across the Asia-Pacific region.

The IPSTAR service launch represents the next stage of the cooperation agreement signed several months ago to provide customers across the Asia-Pacific region with an integrated solution comprising Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c VSAT satellite ground equipment and Thaicom4’s (IPSTAR) high throughput satellite (HTS).

 “In only a very short time, we’ve been able to implement this new service, which will provide our customers with faster satellite Internet connectivity than they’ve ever experienced before,”  said Ms. Suphajee Suthumpun, Chairman of the Executive Committee and CEO of Thaicom.

The cooperation between the two companies reflects Thaimcom’s ongoing Open Access Platform (OAP) strategy to provide technology equipment vendor’s access to Thaicom 4’s HTS, enabling them to fulfill customer requirements for wider variety and increased flexibility. 

Erez Antebi, CEO of Gilat Satellite Networks, said: “The cooperative endeavour, combining Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c platform with IPSTAR capacity, will provide our customers with an enriched broadband satellite service experience.”
