Spacenet... Farming VSATs (SATCOM)

[SatNews] The communications infrastructure for this large concern are now part of the Company's "to do" list...

Spacenet Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks (NasdaqGLT), was selected by Cumberland Farms Inc. to upgrade and manage its communications infrastructure for more than 600 stores across 11 states. The upgraded network solution will use DSL service to deliver higher network performance and a VSAT satellite overlay to maintain business continuity at each site. Spacenet will install the award winning Prysm Pro network management device at each location to monitor and manage this hybrid network. Due to its unique vendor agnostic approach, Spacenet will be able to upgrade Cumberland Farms' existing broadband services to higher speed broadband services while providing VSAT based business continuity and multicast capabilities. This upgraded network will provide Cumberland Farms locations with a cost-effective, redundant communication network which will support their advanced retail application needs from PCI compliance to POS and inventory tracking as well as back-office applications.
