Gilat Satellite Networks announced the availability of its mobility solution for its multi-application SkyEdge II-c platform. The comprehensive mobility feature-set supports spectral efficiency and availability while delivering throughput of up to 400Mbps.

Gilat’s multi-application platform powered by its distributed X-Architecture is now optimized and enhanced to meet the most challenging satellite mobility communication requirements. Gilat’s Taurus and Capricorn family of VSATs achieve unprecedented throughput reaching up to 400Mbs while enabling transmission at supersonic speeds with Doppler timing compensation. SkyEdge II-c VSATs are powered by a multi-core ARM CPU and deliver excellent user experience over satellite.

The SkyEdge II-c platform is being enhanced with the latest generation wideband DVB-S2X outbound standard. Gilat is introducing unique true real-time resilient adaptive LDPC inbound TDMA waveform, which enables significant savings of satellite bandwidth costs while delivering highest service availability. Gilat’s implementation delivers spread-spectrum transmission performance, enabling high on-the-move service availability even in the most extreme conditions. The platform is built to deliver maximum space segment efficiency via its true dynamic link adaptivity in the return channel. This is achieved by changes to the carrier symbol rate and ModCod per VSAT on a per time-slot basis.

Operational benefits are provided via Gilat’s leading TotalNMS, which includes a comprehensive set of mapping tools delivering mobility services to a configurable geographic service area, with automatic beam switching. Gilat’s Cloud Quality of Service (QoS) supports global bandwidth management, enabling service providers to provision and manage bandwidth across multiple teleports, satellites and user beams from a central NMS.
