“AMN has selected Gilat, due to its superior cellular backhaul over satellite technology, to support the extension of Africa’s largest satellite-based network,” said Michael Darcy, CEO AMN.

Michal Aharonov, Chief Commercial Officer at Gilat, said: “Gilat is working closely with AMN to further expand cellular backhaul reach in additional sites and regions throughout the coming years, including migration to 4G as the requirement for data communication rises.”
