Telebras Brazil taps Gilat for Satellite Broadband Network

Telebras has awarded Gilat Satellite Networks an $11.4M contract to provide a satellite-based broadband network to the Brazilian Geostationary Satellite of Defense and Strategic Communications, SGDC.

The SGDC will cover all of Brazil’s territory and will enable Telebras to fulfil the Brazilian Governmental National Broadband Plan public policy. The satellite is aimed at providing fast and affordable broadband communication to commercial and government entities.

“This turnkey project with Telebras is testament to our commitment to this market and to Gilat’s strategic direction in support of broadband satellite communication delivery to all,” said Russell Ribeiro, Gilat LATAM’s Regional Vice President. “We are looking forward to continued collaboration with Telebras in providing broadband connectivity across Brazil.”
