Satellite is an Integral Part of Your 5G Network
Connecting Billions of Devices Everywhere

With the exponential explosion of devices connected to the Internet:

  • 5G is inevitable, but it can’t reach everywhere by itself.
  • Satellite has the scale and scope to enable ubiquitous connectivity.
  • Gilat has the expertise and innovation to make 5G a reality!

As a leading global provider of 4G satellite backhaul services, Gilat has leveraged its extensive experience in designing, implementing and deploying satellite communication ground stations and expanding it to 5G. Gilat has already proven 5G connectivity achieving remarkable speeds with SkyEdge II-c Capricorn PLUS.

Next generation satellite technology is enabling unprecedented capacity growth. Multi-orbit constellations that include Non-Geostationary Orbit (NGSO) constellations and Very High Throughput Satellites (VHTS) are also driving improved network efficiency and reduced operating costs. 

There is no doubt that satellite communication is essential to materializing the true power of 5G. More specifically, 5G networks will rely on next generation satellite communication to deliver ubiquitous connectivity for fixed and mobility sites anywhere. 

SkyEdge IV is Gilat’s next generation multi-service platform built with our new, advanced Elastix-Architecture. SkyEdge IV’s single platform for multi-orbit operation enables deployment on VHTS as well as NGSO constellations and operates a single and unified multi-orbit network. Together with Software-Defined Satellites (SDS), SkyEdge IV enables the creation of programmable Software-Defined Networks (SDN) that support on-the-fly changes to optimally address dynamic network changes.  

Top reasons for choosing SkyEdge IV for 5G networks:

  • End-to-end encryption with patented layer 2/3 embedded acceleration achieving 1Gbps to the handset
  • Satellite network integration with cloud infrastructure and SDN/NFV core for simplified operations
  • SkyEdge IV Aquarius VSATs with >2Gbps throughput for demanding 5G applications
  • Enabling advanced edge computing for IoT aggregation and caching in remote 5G networks
  • Extending 5G private networks to any location
