Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd, a leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced 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.

"For many applications, satcom on-the-move is the only choice for reliable, continuous and quickly deployable broadband connectivity. 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, vice president of mobility and global accounts at Gilat. "We are excited with the prospect of working on more projects like these to be deployed in the future."
