SkyEdge IV is a scalable software-centric platform that will provide superior operational efficiencies and VSAT backward compatibility to preserve SkyEdge II-c customer investment
Petah Tikva, Israel, February 2, 2022 — Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq: GILT, TASE: GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions, and services, announced today the launch of SkyEdge IV, a next generation satellite communication ground system, aiming to capture a leading position of the multibillion-dollar emerging VHTS market opportunity. SkyEdge IV will increase operational efficiencies due to scalable software centricity and provides VSAT backward compatibility to preserve SkyEdge II-c customer investment.
SkyEdge IV was built to lead the revolutionary Elastix-Era of satellite communication, where multi-orbit constellations and very high throughput satellites (VHTS) answer the demand for ubiquitous connectivity for fixed and mobility sites anywhere, answering the promise of the cloud, 5G, and IoT.
Gilat’s SkyEdge IV is a multi-orbit, multi-service platform built to work in harmony with software defined satellites and support cloud software defined network (SDN) centric infrastructure. The platform is equipped with Elastix-TotalNMS to orchestrate network management for a unified network.
Furthermore, SkyEdge IV includes Aquarius, a family of ultra-high-performance VSATs reaching over 2Gbps total throughput. An Elastix-Access Scheme simultaneously supports any application, even in the most demanding and dynamic conditions. In addition, SkyEdge IV maintains backward compatibility to Gilat’s renowned SkyEdge II-c VSATs.
“Gilat is bringing to market SkyEdge IV, an unprecedented deep-tech software-centric platform that will make the future multibillion-dollar VHTS market opportunity a reality,” said Hagay Katz, Gilat’s Chief Product and Marketing Officer. “I am pleased to report that we have already secured significant orders for this leading platform.”
