Gilat Satellite Networks + THAICOM—IPSTAR Injection (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq:GILT) and THAICOM Public Company Limited (SET BKK: THCOM) have announced the launch of the IPSTAR service to enhance broadband connectivity across the Asia-Pacific region.

This service launch represents the next stage of the cooperation agreement signed several months ago to provide customers across the Asia-Pacific region with an integrated solution comprising Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c VSAT satellite ground equipment and Thaicom4’s (IPSTAR) high throughput satellite (HTS). To unveil the combined offering, Gilat and THAICOM will be conducting seminars in Jakarta, Indonesia in February, where they will demonstrate how the service greatly improves Internet connectivity in the region.
