TELPRESS AWARDS BROADBAND DEAL
Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd’s subsidiary Gilat Europe has been awarded a deal to provide a broadband satellite communications network of up to 2,000 sites by Telpress SRL.
Rome-based Telpress is a provider of custom network infrastructure and web-based applications to help news groups produce and distribute content to subscribers. Gilat Europe’s VSAT (very small aperture terminal) network solution for Telpress includes delivery of all VSAT remote site equipment, as well as comprehensive network operations and high level maintenance.
Gilat said its Skystar VSAT network, used by Telpress in conjunction with its SatCluster news distribution platform, “will enable secure, persistent and reliable broadband transmission of news and other multimedia content to recipients throughout Europe – including many that are beyond the reach of terrestrial broadband technologies”.
