Gilat Satellite Networks Sprints With Their Backhaul

Extending their LTE services to the metro edge and rural areas within the US, Sprint (MYSE: S) has decided to use Gilat Satellite Networks (NASDAQ, TASE: GILT) satellite based cellular backhaul technologies.

SkyEdge II-c hub systems.

Sprint expects to deploy Gilat's high-speed Capricorn VSATs as a cellular backhaul solution for rapid deployment of high-quality, reliable, true LTE-over-satellite in underserved areas and as a solution for special events and Mobile Emergency Response efforts across the United States.

Michal Aharonov, the Vice President of Global Accounts & Telecom Services at Gila, noted that this achievement will enable tier-1 MNOs to provide unprecedented speeds with a lower TCO. Gilat’s technology, coupled with affordable HTS space-segment, is creating new broadband opportunities in the US and around the world.
