Gilat Satellite Networks launched a new backhaul solution designed to support next-generation services, including 5G. Gilat is now further enhancing and optimizing its SkyEdge II-c multi-service platform for 5G capacity, service and network availability targets, to deliver new levels of satellite connectivity.

The enhanced SkyEdge II-c solution enables 2.5 Gbps throughput from a single forward carrier and 1 Gbps throughput from associated return channels, enabled by DVB-S2X wideband transmission in the forward direction and Gilat’s LDPC return access scheme. The SkyEdge II-c solution supports the full suite of current modems and capabilities, including GPRS Tunneling Protocol (GTP) acceleration, Mobile-Edge Computing (MEC) and carrier grade Layer-2 and Layer-3 with GTP acceleration.

“As networks evolve to 5G, Gilat is excited to be at the forefront with a next generation satellite backhaul solution to support the coming transition and enable the delivery of new services,” said Gilat Head of Products Moti Goldshtein. “SkyEdge II-c has become the satellite solution of choice for the world’s leading Long-Term Evolution (LTE) networks, and with the launch of a new set of capabilities we’re now paving the road to 5G connectivity everywhere.”
