Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today the availability of its revolutionary mobility solution for its multi-application SkyEdge II-c platform. The comprehensive mobility feature-set supports unprecedented 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. SkyEdge II-c, already successfully deployed worldwide, is now available with new mobility technologies including unprecedented throughput, significant bandwidth efficiency, highest service availability and substantial operational advantages.
Gilat’s Taurus and Capricorn family of very small aperture terminals (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 innovative implementation delivers exceptional 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. Global bandwidth management is supported by Gilat’s innovative Cloud Quality of Service (QoS), enabling service providers to provision and manage bandwidth across multiple teleports, satellites and user beams from a central NMS.
“Gilat’s leading SkyEdge II-c mobility offering has been designed to address the new requirements of In-Flight Connectivity (IFC), maritime and land mobility applications that are now possible with global large scale HTS and VHTS,” said Hagay Katz, Head of the VSAT Line of Business at Gilat. “With this innovative development, Gilat is leapfrogging current market solutions with the most advanced next generation mobility platform for which we are already seeing significant industry embracement.”
