Gilat Extends Cell & Broadband Coverage In Peru

Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: GILT) has announced that Telefonica del Peru (TdP), Peru's largest telecommunications operator, placed orders for Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c platform to extend cellular and broadband coverage to rural areas nationwide.

Gilat’s X-Architecture has the flexibility to support any number of frequency bands, enabling a smooth migration from Ku to Ka frequency bands.

As it enters the third and final phase of its Mobile License Renewal Contract (MLRC) with the Peruvian government, TdP ordered Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c platform—optimized for HTS with X-Architecture and Capricorn VSATs—for satellite-based cellular backhaul and rural broadband applications. Gilat previously supplied equipment to Telefonica for the MLRC project.
