Gilat Satellite Networks' subsidiary Spacenet has been chosen by American Municipal Power Ohio (AMP-Ohio) to provide a high-speed VSAT data network. The Spacenet Connexstar service will provide remote control for more than 100 transmission substations and carry vital data to AMP-Ohio's SCADA network.
"When AMP-Ohio decided to transition away from terrestrial leased lines and towards an always-on, high-speed connectivity solution, we naturally looked to VSAT," said AMP-Ohio Chief Information Officer Phil Meier.
"We thoroughly evaluated a number of competing VSAT networking vendors, and Spacenet's Connexstar service was a clear winner. Spacenet's technology solution provided the best speed and responsiveness, as well as offering the reliability and availability we demand for our mission-critical network applications."
"This agreement with AMP-Ohio is an important milestone in Spacenet's continued growth and expansion in the energy industry," said Spacenet CEO Bill Gerety. "For years, Spacenet has demonstrated its ability to support the most critical networks for commercial and government customers. Now, our proven technology is seeing increasing use by leading energy companies with strict availability and reliability needs."
