Gilat Adds Disaster Recovery Function to SkyEdge VSAT Platform
Satellite networking technology provider Gilat Satellite Networks has added advanced disaster recovery functionality to its SkyEdge VSAT platform.
Gilat will incorporate embedded Dual IPsec functionality to the platform to enable simultaneous processing over two end-to-end IPsec tunnels, as well as automatic switching of transaction data to disaster recovery sites without requiring external equipment and additional capital expense.
“Our enhanced Dual IPsec solution is especially suited for enterprise applications, such as ATM banking, which requires high reliability and seamless recovery/switchover in the event of disaster or communication failure,” Gilat AVP and Head of VSAT Business Hagay Katz said in a statement. “With this enhancement, which was successfully tested in live networks, we have demonstrated once again our commitment to deliver and respond to the on-going needs of our enterprise customers.”
