2G/3G to be brought to remote areas through Intelsat/Gilat satellite partnership.


An agreement between Intelsat and GSN (Gilat Satellite Networks) has been announced recently which aims for the delivery of 2G and 3G connections to poorly served locations utilising satellite solutions provided by Intelsat combined with Gilat’s solution of small-cell-over-satellite, GilEdge.

The two operators say that increasingly, service providers are looking to satellite services to aid the expansion of their subscriber bases, for service obligation compliance and for the extension of coverage to underserved areas. Their claim is that the joint CellEdge/Gilat solution will provide the resource to get this done profitably and quickly.
