The satellite communication industry is going through an enormous transformation.
Satellite capacity is growing faster than ever before, as next generation satellite technology is evolving to multi-orbit constellations that include Non-Geostationary Orbit (NGSO) constellations and Very High Throughput Satellites (VHTS). Customer demands are increasingly growing with new verticals and geographic markets opening to satellite communication.
This next generation of satellite communication will enable ubiquitous connectivity for fixed and mobility sites anywhere, will extend 5G and mobile Edge computing to serve remote sites and will enable mass market growth to connect IoT devices everywhere. At Gilat we refer to this next generation as the Elastix Era of satellite communication, based on the demand for agile, flexible and scalable solutions.
Gilat is meeting the demands of the Elastix Era with its next generation technology, SkyEdge IV, that will accurately and efficiently focus resources on actual demand with minimal costs. This transformation will address the major satellite industry challenges of requiring higher network capacity, at a lower cost, with ensured availability, lower latency and higher throughput per user.
Gilat’s technology for the Elastix Era is composed of four dimensions to deliver on the promise of next generation satellite communication.
Where the agility and dynamic nature of the cloud is brought to satellite communications to provide unmatched efficiency
Multi-Orbit Satellite Constellations
Where multi-orbit constellations and very high throughput satellites provide orders of magnitude increase in capacity
Where software defined satellites operate harmoniously creating an elastic network that constantly adjusts in sync with ever-changing conditions
Where any application is supported most efficiently even in the most demanding conditions
