[SatNews] Upcoming on July 17th, 2013, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., EDT, is a new, free webinar from Gilat Satellite Systems entitled “Bridge the Digital Divide with Satellite Communications.” The webinar will assist in understanding how satellite can be used to provide education, healthcare and other socio-economic services even in the most remote or outlying areas.
The unique technological solution has been developed over the past five years, as part of the Magnet program of the Chief Scientists Office, and was fully demonstrated for the first time on the 24th of June. Participants in the project include Orbit, Elbit Systems, Alvarion, SOX, Gilat Satellite Networks (who hosted the event), Wavion, RAS (Raysat Antenna Systems) and Runcom.
Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., a leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced that the RESCUE consortium, which operates as part of the MAGNET Program in the Office of the Chief Scientist of Israel, demonstrated a unique new integrated technology that enables the rapid deployment of broadband communication infrastructure in the event of disaster.
Gilat has just been awarded a contract extension to continue to provide connectivity services to schools in Colombia. Could you explain a bit about this project to us?
