The satellite communication industry is going through an enormous transformation. Next generation satellite technology is evolving to multi-orbit constellations that include Non-Geostationary Orbit (NGSO) constellations, Very High Throughput Satellites (VHTS), as well as the traditional Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites. This next phase will enable ubiquitous connectivity for fixed and mobility sites, 5G and IoT, and will require innovation to provide the needed higher throughput, higher flexibility and network orchestration between ground and space. At Gilat we refer to this next generation as the Elastic Era of satellite communication, based on the demand for agile, flexible and scalable solutions.
Gilat will meet the demands of the Elastic Era, with its next generation technology which will accurately and efficiently focus resources on actual demand with minimal costs. This transformation will address the major satellite industry challenges of needing higher network capacity, at a lower cost, with ensured availability, lower latency, and higher throughput per user. The network elasticity will address both day-one operation as well as on-going changes in network requirements.
Gilat has launched its next generation family of VSATs, Aquarius, supporting 5G networks and LEO/MEO constellations.
The ultra-high-performance, multi-orbit VSATs provide over 2 Gigabits per second of concurrent speeds and support seamless satellite handover.
