Telecom Namibia selects Gilat for SkyEdge II broadband satellite network

Telecom Namibia has selected Gilat to provide a SkyEdge II Broadband Satellite Network to serve various locations throughout Namibia. The new, IP oriented and higher capacity network will replace legacy equipment and enable the connection of new sites to broadband services.

According to the company, the implementation of the 600-site Sky Edge II network commenced in mid-2010 and is in final stages of completion. Telecom Namibia will use the SkyEdge II network to deliver Internet and VoIP services to residential and enterprise customers.

Laban Hiwilepo, general manager of Network Provisioning and Assurance, Telecom Namibia, said: "Gilat has been a long term partner for Telecom Namibia. Their track record in product leadership and service support was a key consideration in our selection process.

"By upgrading our network to Gilat's SkyEdge II VSAT platform, we aim to establish a more bandwidth efficient infrastructure and improve our satellite capacity utilization, enabling us to expand our customer footprint and deliver broadband access to even more locations throughout the country."
