Spacenet Introduces New Emergency Communications Service via Satellite with ‘Pay-as-you-use’ Service Plan Options

Relateret indhold

Spacenet Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks

Ltd. (Nasdaq: GILT) and a leading provider of networking solutions,

announced today that it has introduced its new Emergency Communications

Service (ECS). The new service offering is designed to provide a more

cost-effective and flexible satellite solution, leveraging an always on

pay-as-you-use service plan with dedicated satellite bandwidth for

readily available and reliable emergency communications. ECS is ideal

for public safety and first responder agencies such as police, fire

departments, and medical emergency teams as well as federal agencies

such as FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security who require network

continuity for disaster planning, but also face the reality of budget

limitations. The new service is being offered just in time for hurricane

season and provides coverage to virtually all U.S. hurricane-prone


Spacenet has been offering similar solutions to a number of

organizations including a recent opportunity to provide satellite

equipment and services to the American Red Cross through a partnership

with EchoStar Satellite Services in support of disaster relief efforts

in Haiti. Because satellite technology can be deployed virtually

anywhere and does not depend on local network infrastructure, it has

played a large part in the re-establishment of data and voice

communications networks during severe weather conditions. ECS is ideal

for organizations in the coastal regions and helps eliminate the risks

of network outages during hurricane season, including safety concerns,

lost productivity and liability.

“Spacenet’s ECS offering was designed to provide a more cost-effective

and reliable satellite communications solution for emergency

situations,” said Spacenet Vice President of Government Services Mike

Mazza. “The Spacenet ECS solution is drastically different than most of

the existing part time services available today. Most of these services

are based on a highly oversubscribed and shared bandwidth model, which

can result in poor service quality, especially during emergency

situations when multiple users need access. The ECS service, on the

other hand, includes dedicated bandwidth and service level agreements to

ensure a high-quality and reliable solution at a low cost. With ECS,

customers pay a low monthly standby fee and then only pay for service

when or if they actually need it, and more importantly, the service is

available when they really need it.”

The ECS service is powered by the field-proven SkyEdge II VSAT

technology. The VSAT router is integrated with mobile auto-deploy

antenna systems and can be easily installed on mobile command vehicles

and trailers, or at standard fixed locations. ECS features include a

range of service packages with multi-megabit speeds; dedicated bandwidth

during deployment; daily or weekly usage service plans; full support for

converged data, voice and video applications; and 24 x 7 U.S. based

premium customer support.
