Globe taps Gilat for Managed Service Satellite Backhaul in Philippines

Globe taps Gilat for Managed Service Satellite Backhaul in Philippines

Globe Telecom has chosen Gilat for a five year multi-million dollar managed service contract to enable accelerated deployment for the mobile operator’s rapid network expansion throughout the Philippines.

Gilat is to deliver its leading Satellite backhaul for Cellular Network as a managed service to provide data and voice services over 2G/3G/LTE to all regions requiring improved connectivity and broadband access, while maintaining a strict service level agreement (SLA). This service will enable Globe to provide voice and data coverage over satellite in the challenging terrain of the Philippines.

“By using Gilat’s innovative VSAT technology, we can deliver mobile broadband data services in remote rural areas that previously had no connectivity, in a cost effective manner. At the same time, this will allow us to quickly augment our transmission capacity in our 4G network to meet ever-increasing mobile data usage. Moreover, this innovative VSAT technology will be used to provide for rapid disaster communications in combination with network-in-a-box technology during catastrophic incidences,” said Emmanuel Estrada, Globe Senior Vice President for Technical Service Design.

Abhay Kumar, RVP Asia at Gilat, said: “This project is closely aligned with Gilat’s strategy and investments to offer outstanding technological innovation as a managed service in support of telecom service providers who are seeking to provide their consumer and enterprise customers plentiful, quality and affordable broadband.”
