Gilat Satellite Networks has received an order from one of Europe's largest satellite broadband ISPs in support of SES Broadband Services' (SBBS) Ka-band consumer service rollout. The initial order includes the delivery of several thousand self-install customer premise equipment (CPE) Kits.
Gilat's SkyEdge II-c award winning "Aries" VSAT provides up to 20Mbps HTTP on download and 2Mbps on upload. With Aries, European households will be able to benefit from considerably faster speeds for satellite consumer services, enabling internet, video and VOIP services.
Aries was designed from the bottom up for the consumer market, with quick and intuitive self-installation features and automatic service activation.
"We are very excited to have received this order for our Ka-band terminals to support SBBS and look forward to a successful rollout," said Erez Antebi, CEO of Gilat.
"Ka-band offers unprecedented capabilities in the satellite industry - very high data rates at attractive prices."
"The potential in Europe for these services is very large, and we are proud to be part of this initiative," continued Antebi.
"We are well positioned to provide the products and support necessary to enable ISPs who are looking to expand their businesses providing satellite based broadband services to consumers and small offices."
