Gilat Satellite Networks has equipped its 10,000th Dollar General store with Spacenet's advanced SkyEdge VSAT technology. Dollar General has more retail locations than any other retailer in the U.S. Spacenet has been working with Dollar General since 2001 and has equipped all 10,000+ Dollar General locations with Spacenet VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) satellite connectivity.
Because of its ubiquitous coverage and rapid deployment capabilities, Spacenet's VSAT solution is an important factor in enabling the retailer's stores to open on time during this period of rapid expansion.
Spacenet's VSAT provides all the store's broadband connectivity prior to the deployment of terrestrial-based broadband, such as DSL or cable, which typically occurs within 45 days of opening.
The VSATs continue to provide multicast capabilities (PC updates, virus protection, HR blasts, planograms, etc.). In addition, the Spacenet VSATs provide a highly-reliable communications backup to landlines for truly geographically-diverse continuity of operations.
"It's an honor to be working with one of the world's finest, and fastest growing retailers," said Spacenet President and CEO, Glenn Katz.
"We're proud to help play a key supporting role in Dollar General's national expansion, not only with rapidly deployable VSAT connectivity, but also with our overall approach to Managed Network Services.
"Our goal is to provide our customers with the technology, talent and teamwork to help them expand their business, reduce costs, improve security and meet their network objectives.
"And there's simply no better testament to these capabilities than by deploying the largest, and fastest growing business continuity retail network in the country. Congratulations Dollar General. Here's to the next 10,000."
Spacenet recently entered into a renewed contract to provide VSAT network connectivity and Managed Network Services for the retailer for a variety of data applications utilizing business continuity and multicast content delivery.
Spacenet's reliable and cost-effective Managed Network solutions support vital retail applications such as PCI compliance, business continuity, on-site management support, internet/intranet access, POS, video security, inventory management, employee training and payroll systems, among many others.
