Gilat wins backhaul contract in Peru

Satellite networking technology, solutions and services provider Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd has been awarded a $10m five-year project for 3G/4G backhaul services in Peru.

The infrastructure and network, which Gilat recently started to operate, is the basis for mobile coverage to be provided by a large, and as yet unnamed, mobile infrastructure operator for rural areas. Gilat expects that the current contract will significantly expand over time.

Leveraging the infrastructure and network deployed by Gilat will allow the mobile infrastructure operator to reach its goal of bringing 4G mobile internet to rural locations and thousands of Peruvians who are in remote areas, says the company.

Gilat adds that its solution allow the operator to overcome the complex geography that limits the arrival of telecommunications and will support an important positive impact on local economies by enabling access to information and digital platforms.

Gilat designs and manufactures ground segment equipment, and provides comprehensive solutions and end-to-end services. Its portfolio includes a cloud-based VSAT network platform, high-speed modems, high performance on-the-move antennas, and high-efficiency, high-power solid state amplifiers and block upconverters.
