Antennas from Gilat to enable satellite-based internet for passenger trains
Petah Tikva, Israel, February 2, 2023 — Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq: GILT, TASE: GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions, and services, announced today that the company was awarded a multimillion-dollar contract for the expansion of satellite communications (SATCOM) capabilities on trains in Asia-Pacific.
Gilat’s ER7000 SATCOM On-The-Move antennas were chosen by a leading integrator, for installation on trains to provide continuous internet access to passengers travelling across the Asia-Pacific region.
Throughout the world, Gilat’s field-proven ER7000 antennas have been successfully deployed to empower SATCOM On-The-Move applications. They provide reliable, high-performance broadband connectivity for vehicles and rail travel, maximizing throughput with high efficiency in a low-profile system with minimal size and weight. These features make the ER7000 ideally suited for these applications, enabling real-time broadband satellite communications for video, voice, and data transfer.

This project is an excellent example of how Gilat antenna systems can be used to provide better management of complex transportation networks, as well as reliable internet coverage for passengers,” said Amir Yafe, VP of Mobility & Global Accounts at Gilat. “We are excited with the prospect of working on more projects like these to be deployed in the future.”
