The project is based on Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c, which provides a single platform for fixed and mobility services. The solution incorporates redundant primary and secondary sites to deliver the high availability and reliability for critical needs.

Use cases include services for government, utilities, banks and hospitals, as well as broadband connectivity for several mobility applications such as emergency response vehicles and on-the-move news and media cars.

“With our multi-application single platform, JSAT will be able to support their growth plans to deliver plentiful, quality and affordable satellite-based broadband communication to their fixed and mobility customers across Japan,” Abhay Kumar, regional vice president Asia and North America, said.

SKY Perfect JSAT is Asia’s largest satellite operator with a fleet of 18 satellites, and Japan’s provider of both multi-channel pay TV broadcasting and satellite communications services.
