Gilat to Provide Broadband Solution for India’s GSAT-11
Gilat Satellite Networks was awarded a multi-year contract to provide equipment and services for broadband connectivity over the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) GSAT-11 across India. Larsen & Toubro (L&T), an Indian multinational company engaged in technology, engineering, construction, manufacturing, and financial services, chose Gilat to supply the ground segment and operate four gateways.
The ISRO launched the multi-spot beam satellite GSAT-11 last month, to provide broadband coverage over India’s mainland and islands, boosting connectivity to rural India and chose L&T to supply, install, commission, and maintain the GSAT-11 ground system network. GSAT 11 will enhance public welfare systems like e-banking, e-health, e-governance as well as provide a platform to demonstrate new generation applications.
Additionally, L&T chose Gilat’s multi-application SkyEdge II-c platform to deliver broadband services across the country. Gilat’s hubs will be placed and operated in the Ranchi, Delhi, Ahmedabad, and Bangalore gateway sites in India.
