Gilat Satellite Networks, a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, has announced that TIM Brasil, a Tier-1 mobile network operator, has reached a milestone of over 1,000 sites leveraging Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c platform to build the largest 4G satellite cellular backhaul network in Latin America.

Gilat’s platform demonstrates carrier grade service levels in support of the extended 4G rural coverage and agriculture IoT connectivity. The large network provides a major push to bridging the digital divide in Brazil.

As new sites are added to the 4G network, Gilat provides to TIM Brasil a one-stop-shop for timely deployment, commissioning and activation of satellite backhaul services, leveraging Gilat’s local presence and delivery capabilities.

“Gilat, with its local presence and delivery capabilities, was fundamental in helping us to provide high-quality 4G connectivity to all Brazilian cities as part of our Sky Coverage program, thus meeting regulatory obligations, and addressing the IoT/Agribusiness market,” said Marco Di Costanzo, Network Director at TIM Brasil.

“Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c platform and high-performance Capricorn VSATs enable us to extend this project across one-thousand sites, proudly building the largest 4G satellite backhaul in the region.”  

Michal Aharonov, Chief Commercial Officer at Gilat, said: “Through the inspiring work with TIM Brasil, we are able to demonstrate, once again, how Gilat’s services and leading 4G satellite backhaul solution bring unmatched value to our partners.”
