Gilat and SkyEdge Provide USO to Kazakhstan
|23 января 2009|
Rural locations don't mean going without connectivity thanks to Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. which announced it has been selected by its long-time customer, and Kazakhstan's major telecommunications operator, JSC Kazakhtelecom (KT), to expand its existing SkyEdge network to serve several hundred additional sites in remote locations nationwide.
In addition to providing network connectivity for businesses and consumers, the new expansion will be used to provide telephony and broadband Internet services to remote communities in Kazakhstan as part of a Universal Service Obligation (USO). Gilat's SkyEdge VSATs are ideally suited for USO requirements, with toll-quality telephony, low-power options and very high MTBF. SkyEdge enables the delivery of advanced enterprise data networking and telephony services. JSC Kazakhtelecom uses Gilat SkyEdge broadband satellite network to also deliver advanced services to major corporations, enterprises, consumers as well as rural communities nationwide.
"Gilat's ability to anticipate and meet our requirements is the foundation of our successful, long-term business relationship. Gilat's SkyEdge network, based on advanced VSAT technology and experience, enables us to continue to provide the highest level of customer service while meeting the complex networking requirements of Kazakhstan's enterprises, government agencies and consumers," said KT Chief Technical Director Lezgovko Aleksandr Vladimirovich.
Arie Rozichner, Gilat's regional vice president, Eurasia, said, "We are proud to continue to support the growing needs of KT, a Gilat customer since 1998. Gilat's VSAT technology provides an excellent solution for KT, enabling the delivery of cost-effective, high-speed Internet and telephony services to citizens amid Kazakhstan's harsh terrain and severe weather conditions. We look forward to continuing our market leadership in Kazakhstan and helping KT improve the quality of life for citizens in the most remote regions of the country."
