(Nasdaq:GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, today announced the launch of SkyEdge II-c, the New Simple in Internet Connectivity. SkyEdge II-c supports Ka-band and Ku-band internet services for both consumer and enterprise applications, including fast web browsing, video streaming, IPTV, VoIP and other bandwidth-intensive services.

SkyEdge II-c's scalable architecture enables operators to start small and expand later as demand grows, while delivering the business flexibility they need to provide customized and competitive Internet broadband services.

"It's never been easier to offer your customers the right Internet service plans and bandwidth usage levels to fit their needs," explains Hagay Katz, Gilat's AVP, Head of VSAT Line of Business. "Our new SkyEdge II-c platform dramatically simplifies your network operations and can now provide your ISPs and VNOs the business flexibility to deliver customized and competitive Internet plans and services. Compact, fully integrated, and easy to install, SkyEdge II-c is the New Simple in Internet Connectivity."
