Spacenet® Showcases Integrated Communications For Public Utilities During DistribuTECH 2013 – Booth #3048

Spacenet Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq: GILT) and a leading provider of managed network services, is showcasing its full suite of communication network solutions for public utilities and energy companies at the annual DistribuTECH conference held at the San Diego Convention Center on January 29-31, 2013.

Spacenet provides proven Wide Area Network (WAN) solutions for the nation’s leading utilities and energy companies, supporting crucial communications-reliant applications including:

• SCADA applications;

• Smart grid applications;

• Substation automation/distribution automation;

• Advanced metering infrastructure;

• Video surveillance; and

• Voice over IP (VoIP)

At booth #3048, Spacenet’s executives will discuss the need of public utilities and energy companies with disparate locations for secure, fast and reliable connectivity, with a lower total cost of network ownership. Spacenet will feature its Armadillo line of ruggedized, all-weather VSAT platforms, including the new Armadillo Advantage™ VSAT Hybrid.

Spacenet’s Armadillo Advantage is a hybrid VSAT that integrates a primary Ku-band VSAT and a back-up Inmarsat BGAN TM terminal housed securely within rugged all-weather housing. It includes three main state-of-the art components: a Gilat SkyEdge ® II VSAT, an Inmarsat BGAN terminal, and a remotely managed Router. The Armadillo Advantage VSAT terminal is designed for primary use with Spacenet’s advanced custom network and standard Connexstar TM offerings and also supports other WAN technologies such as 3G/4G, T1, Cable and DSL.

“Whether it’s gas, electric or water, today’s public utilities are working diligently to deliver these vital services in the safest, most efficient manner possible,” said Glenn Katz, Spacenet’s CEO. “As one of the nation’s leading providers of managed network services to utilities, our job is to ensure that our customers can communicate, no matter where, no matter when, and no matter what. Products like our new Armadillo Advantage do precisely that. This unique technology provides a seamless primary VSAT connection with an alternate satellite (Inmarsat BGAN TM) Remote Access path to ensure fast, secure and highly reliable SCADA, data, voice and video networking for customers in any location and any environment.”

Also at booth #3048, Spacenet experts will be on hand to discuss how Spacenet’s full-range of technology-neutral solutions offer utilities the most reliable and cost-effective connectivity for each site, whether satellite-based such as VSAT, BGAN, or land-based communications such as Cable, Fiber, T1, DSL, or 3G/4G. Spacenet’s managed network services feature built-in redundancy for high availability, quick deployment times, fast data transmission and fast response times with real-time control, and 24/7 service supported by Spacenet’s state-of-the-art network operations centers.
