The Taurus family consists of ultra high-performance VSATs for a variety of mobility services used by both commercial and government/military purposes. Taurus delivers acceleration and packet-per-second performance that supports hundreds of users per VSAT, 200Mbps, 3G and LTE patented cellular data and acceleration and is 5G ready. Taurus meets the satellite communication needs for both HTS, VHTS (Very High Throughput Satellites) and wide-beam satellites on a global network. Taurus provides secure, seamless connectivity across land, sea and air on C, Ku and Ka bands.
Taurus is an ultra high-performance modem solution for a comprehensive broadband IFC solution either as a Modman or a card. Using Taurus, rates of 200Mbps can be achieved, enabling Internet and multimedia applications that support hundreds of airplane passengers.
Specifically, for Gilat’s Government and Military customers, Taurus-M is a fast-to-deploy, lightweight and easy-to-operate military modem that meets the most rugged military specifications. Setting a new standard for mission flexibility, the Taurus-M delivers highly available high-speed satellite communications for on-the-move (SOTM) and stationary operations. It is the smallest Modem on the market today which offers these capabilities.
Taurus Pro is an ultra high-performance rack mounted satellite VSAT for mobility connectivity. It is particularly suited for first responder vehicles equipped with the VSAT to provide communication in times of emergency.
Taurus multi-purpose VSATs support advanced applications based QoS, VLANs and IPv6 networking. They provide the full feature set for mobility services, incorporating advanced mobility features such as high-speed Doppler compensation, transmit power control with link adaptation and antenna skew compensation with dynamic spread spectrum. Taurus also incorporates true seamless beam switchover, ensuring service continuity. The unique distributed X-Architecture of SkyEdge II-c and the Elastix-Architecture of SkyEdge IV are ideal platforms for switchover between beams, satellites and gateways, while maintaining user application sessions.
In addition, Taurus provides the highest level of transmission security, supporting X509 terminal authentication and AES-256-bit link layer encryption with dynamic key rotation to protect all user traffic.
