NeraTel selects Gilat to provide SkyEdge II network

The network to provide converged services to a government organization in southeast Asia

By CBR Staff Writer

Singapore-based Nera Telecommunications has selected Israel’s Gilat Satellite Networks to provide a SkyEdge II network that will be used to serve a government organization in southeast Asia.

According to Gilat, the new network based on its SkyEdge II Access and Pro VSATs can carry end-to-end MPLS data. This includes converged services such as broadband IP, voice, video and multicasting.

Gilat’s SkyEdge II Pro is the latest addition to the SkyEdge II family. SkyEdge II Pro is a carrier-grade, modular VSAT, enabling fast throughput for rapid access to the web, VoIP, corporate connectivity and multimedia applications, noted Gilat.

Tan Hong Pew, executive vice president for satellite communications at Nera Telecommunications (NeraTel), said: The delivery of the total communication system to the government organization is one of the major breakthroughs for the NeraTel Group and this has strengthened our market position in the government market sector. We are pleased to have partnered with Gilat in providing a competitive solution which reduces space segment utilization and at the same time provides excellent availability.

N. Ranganathan, RVP for Asia at Gilat Network Systems, said: We are certain that NeraTel’s customer will benefit from SkyEdge II’s high performance, enjoying an array of advanced applications and services on a reliable and secure platform. The system’s modular design allows add-on modules as required for mesh, embedded voice ports and other future technologies.
