Hispasat Selects Gilat to Deliver Broadband Services in Mexico

Mexico’s Hispasat has selected Gilat Satellite Networks’ platform to provide broadband commercial services in Mexico using Hispasat’s Ka HTS capacity of the Amazonas-5 Satellite.

A potential of tens of thousands of Gilat’s VSATs are estimated to be deployed over the next few years, as Internet Service Providers (ISPs) ramp up their service.

Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c, multi-service platform, optimally utilises the high throughput satellite resources delivering cost efficient bandwidth while providing excellent user experience. The platform was selected to commercialise the full capacity of Hispasat’s Amazonas-5 Ka beams over Mexico, enabling Hispasat and its customers to offer a variety of services such as broadband Internet services, WiFi connectivity in semi-urban and rural locations, and mobility applications to government and private sector clients.

“We are pleased to deploy Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c platform to maximise the benefits of our recently launched multi-beam Ka satellite, Amazonas-5,” said Ignacio Sanchis, Chief Commercial Officer at Hispasat. “Gilat’s multi-service cost effective platform is ideal for business development for Hispasat and its clients in Mexico, enabling quick service expansion to a variety of vertical markets.”

“We see this deal in Mexico as a significant step in delivering on our promise for regional recovery,” said Ron Levin, VP Global Accounts at Gilat. “We are pleased to deliver our SkyEdge II-c multi-service platform to bring quality, plentiful and affordable broadband to unserved and underserved regions throughout Mexico.”
