Gilat Satellite Networks will be working with Telstra, a global telecommunications and technology service provider, on its 4G services in Australia. Telstra has chosen Gilat’s backhaul solution to expand its 4G mobile service throughout remote locations across Australia. Gilat’s satellite backhaul solution will enable integration into Telstra’s network.

Gilat’s DVB-S2X Capricorn Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT), member of the SkyEdge II-c platform, is a key part of Telstra’s 4GX-lite Mobile Satellite Small Cell offering. Telstra’s service will bring coverage to new areas for the benefit of customers such as rural farmers, mining companies, and local councils.

Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c platform delivers high spectral efficiency and optimized space segment via advanced transmission and Gilat’s Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) fast adaptive return access scheme. Gilat’s solution supports integration at both layer-2 and layer-3 with a full end-to-end encryption.
