Gilat 4G cellular backhaul over satellite for operators
TIM Brasil’s coverage of 12 million hectares for the agrobusiness is largely possible due to Gilat’s cellular backhaul over satellite solution. The execution included timely remote installations by the Gilat team to ensure that 100 percent of Brazil’s cities have mobile network access provided by TIM Brasil.

“TIM Brasil is the only MNO in the nation to cover all of Brazil’s municipalities,” said Marco Di Costanzo, Network Director at TIM Brasil. “Reaching this goal wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Gilat team, working closely with us to connect sites in the most remote regions of the country.”

“Gilat’s technology enables TIM to extend their presence from urban centers to the countryside. We are proud to partner with TIM in this important journey to bridge the digital divide with 4G access across the country,” said Michal Aharonov, Chief Commercial Officer at Gilat.
