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.”
