Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. is providing a SkyEdge II broadband satellite communications network to Vietnam Telecom International (VTI), a subsidiary of VNPT, Vietnam's national telecommunications service provider.

The new SkyEdge II system will operate via VINASAT-1, the first Vietnamese communications satellite, and will combine both C-band and Ku-band capacity within the same network using the SkyEdge II multi-transponder capability.

The VSAT network will consist of hundreds of remote sites and will support a wide range of applications, including broadband Internet access, GSM trunking and private leased circuits.

Mr. Ho Cong Lam, VTI's Deputy Managing Director, said, "We have concluded that the SkyEdge II is the most suitable communications system for our new VSAT services. By incorporating Gilat's VSAT platform, we can deliver a diverse range of services to end-users in every corner of the country."

"The new contract highlights VTI's commitment to deliver advanced connectivity that will improve the quality of life for Vietnam citizens and we are pleased to have been chosen for this project," said N. Ranganathan, Gilat's Regional Vice President of Sales, Asia.

"Our SkyEdge II high-performance system will give VTI the flexibility both in network scale and in breadth of service including portable sites with motorized antennas and mesh topologies."
