Gilat Wins Cell Backhaul Contract Extension from US MNO
Gilat Satellite Networks revealed last week that it was awarded a three-year contract renewal and expansion for cellular backhaul managed service from a Tier-1 Mobile-Network Operator (MNO) in the U.S. The contract renewal is worth $20 million.
With this award, Gilat becomes the MNO’s sole vendor to provide the end-to-end services for LTE backhauling and disaster-recovery, while replacing existing satellite technologies.
“We are delighted to have been selected by the US Tier-1 MNO for this major three-year managed service contract renewal and expansion, which is a testament to Gilat’s strong service capabilities in this area,” said Michal Aharonov, vice president of global broadband networks at Gilat. “I am pleased that Gilat’s managed service strategy is materializing globally, securing important contracts with major customers around the world.”
