Comlabs selects Gilat for US Government critical communications requirements
Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions, and services, announced today that the company’s products and technology were selected by Comlabs Government Systems, a US-based systems integrator, as a service upgrade to their existing satellite network of several hundred government and nuclear sites throughout the United States.
Two Gilat SkyEdge II-c hubs and hundreds of fixed and mobile VSATs will be deployed to upgrade the satellite connectivity requirements of Comlab’s customer base of US government and nuclear facility customers.
