- 200Mbps Terminal Enables Expanding LTE Market Reach -

PETAH TIKVA, Israel– Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq:GILT) (TASE:GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today that its Capricorn LTE backhauling solution completed tests on Thaicom's IPSTAR satellite.

Gilat presents Mobile Network Operators with the opportunity to economically deploy LTE sites at speeds similar to terrestrial links, while maintaining excellent user experience. The solution can be used to expand coverage where no fiber exists or as an interim solution, until fiber is deployed. In both cases, SkyEdge II-c Capricorn presentsviable business case that cannot be achieved by SCPC modem technology, due to the high peak-to-average ratios of LTE networks.

"We see the growth of LTE as a great opportunity for us with the Capricorn. It is the fastest TDMA VSAT in the market, with unprecedented data rates," said Erez Antebi, Chief Executive Officer of Gilat. "LTE backhaul requires extremely high rates, together with bandwidth sharing, to reduce operational costs, and we can provide this today."

Come to our hospitality suite HIBISCUS 3610/3710, Level 3 at CommunicAsia 2014 to see the Capricorn VSAT.

SkyEdge II-c Capricorn is the first VSAT in the market that leverages multiple-core ARM technology to perform acceleration and encryption at LTE speeds, 200Mbps speeds, enabling over 30K PPS, with low power and a small footprint. Based on 3GPP standards, it works with any standard LTE base station.
