Spacenet Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq: GILT) and a leading provider of managed network services, will showcase its full suite of emergency communication solutions for law enforcement and public safety agencies at the International Association of Chiefs of Police 119 th Annual Conference and Exposition in San Diego, from September 29 through October 3, 2012.
In booth #3152, key Spacenet executives will present the Company’s seamlessly integrated network services for law enforcement and public safety agencies. This includes its unique ECS and ECS Flex Services that deliver satellite-based connectivity on a “pay-as-you-use” basis, making emergency communications affordable for budget-sensitive public safety agencies. In addition, Spacenet will feature solutions that use fixed satellite networks for mission-critical applications, mobile solutions for rapid deployment and disaster recovery, and options for Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) connectivity.
Spacenet’s satellite-based choices for emergency communications services enable users to establish and maintain Land Mobile Radio (LMR), data, voice and video communications when other land-based technologies fail.
“For those who respond to emergencies, keeping open lines of communication is more critical than ever,” said Glenn Katz, Spacenet’s CEO. “Modern communications technology offers first responders powerful tools to save lives. Today’s first responders can now communicate using vital data, voice, images, and even video on-scene. The same event that creates the emergency often takes down the land-based infrastructure that typically enables these capabilities. Because Spacenet’s satellite-based emergency communications solutions are independent of terrestrial network infrastructure, we can provide public safety agencies the ability to communicate even under the most challenging conditions.”Spacenet offers a comprehensive range of strategic and tactical emergency communications solutions including:
- ECS and ECS Flex Services that deliver satellite-based connectivity on a “pay-as-you-use” basis, making emergency communications affordable for budget-sensitive public safety agencies.
- WAN Back-up/Restoration Solutions providing high-speed connections supporting data, voice and video, independent of ground system/terrestrial infrastructure.
