Gilat Achieves Fastest Ever Modem Speeds of 1.2 Gbps Total
Throughput over Telesat's Phase 1 LEO Satellite

Industry milestone recorded for maximizing potential of high throughput NGSO satellites

Petah Tikva, Israel, November 21, 2019 -- Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today that Gilat achieved the fastest ever modem speeds of 1.2 Gbps total throughput over Telesat's Phase 1 LEO satellite. This industry milestone demonstrates the potential of high throughput Non-Geostationary Orbit (NGSO) satellite constellations. Gilat's technology opens opportunities for new telecommunications products and a wider range of customer experiences to markets demanding very high throughputs such as cruise ships, large airplanes, trunking and high-capacity government applications. Additionally, the combination of high throughput provided by Gilat’s innovative technology and the low latency from NGSO creates opportunity for delay-sensitive applications such as 5G.

“Telesat is delivering on the promise of exceptional throughput, high data rate, low latency applications and this demonstration highlights the benefits of our LEO constellation architecture," said Michel Forest, Director of Systems Engineering for the LEO Program at Telesat. "Telesat truly values our longstanding collaboration with Gilat and we are pleased to have achieved these remarkable levels of performance using Gilat's innovative technology."

"The strong partnership between Telesat and Gilat marks another outstanding achievement for delivery of next generation satellite services required for high-throughput applications," said Amir Yafe, Head of Global Accounts at Gilat. "Demonstrating the industry's fastest modem marks a significant breakthrough and a major milestone in realizing Gilat’s vision of enabling plentiful, quality and affordable broadband, by bringing innovative technologies that maximize the promise of NGSO satellite constellations."
