For 5G Backhaul, Maritime and Cruise Ships Requiring High Throughput
Capricorn PLUS is designed to provide high throughput of up to 450/200Mbps, enabling multiple hundreds of users to simultaneously use popular media rich applications, seamlessly over a satellite link. Gilat provides a unique and comprehensive solution for data intensive services that is achieved when combined with Gilat’s patented Dynamic Channels technology for full network utilization. Gilat is paving the way to 5G backhauling over satellite with higher throughputs and greater efficiencies to support exponential growth in network capacity as well as in the number and types of connected devices and services.
Capricorn PLUS is a member of the SkyEdge II-c multi-application platform enabling a shared bandwidth pool for a wide variety of applications such as maritime, cruise ships and 4G/5G cellular backhaul with backward compatibility to 2G/3G networks.
These use cases have a significantly different traffic profile which traditionally required separate bandwidth pools for each application, causing an inefficient use of bandwidth due to a static resources allocation. Gilat’s field-proven Dynamic Channels technology enables optimal dynamic allocation of bandwidth every 40 msec, truly adapting the network resources to each application’s need on a per VSAT basis, according to the required SLA.
