Hispasat to Expand HTS Capacity in Mexico on Gilat Platform
Hispasat has selected Gilat Satellite Network’s platform for a multi-million dollar project to provide broadband commercial services in Mexico using Hispasat’s Ka-band capacity on the Amazonas 5 High Throughput Satellite (HTS).
Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c uses HTS resources to deliver cost-efficient bandwidth. Hispasat selected the platform to commercialize the full capacity of its Amazonas 5 Ka-band beams over Mexico, enabling Hispasat and its customers to offer services such as broadband internet services, Wi-Fi connectivity in semi-urban and rural locations, and mobility applications to government and private sector clients.
“Gilat and Hispasat are cooperating in multiple projects around the globe, and we are now pleased to deploy Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c platform to maximize the benefits of our recently launched multi-beam Ka satellite, Amazonas 5,” said Ignacio Sanchis, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) 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.”
