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 broadband communication network solutions for enterprise, government agencies, public utility and energy sectors at the annual International Wireless Communication Expo (IWCE) held at the Las Vegas Convention Center on March 13-14, 2013.
At this year’s IWCE, Spacenet is announcing an addition to its line of Emergency Communications Services (ECS). Spacenet’s ECS Connect™ makes emergency broadband communication via satellite more affordable by greatly reducing upfront costs. ECS Connect offers advanced, pre-configured flyaway VSAT systems available on a short-term rental basis with weekly unlimited or per GB usage plans. This unique approach requires no capex investment and eliminates the need to purchase and maintain the satellite equipment.
“Even despite having taken the best preparedness initiatives – whether you’re a government agency or a private enterprise – there are times when communications failures will simply be unavoidable and beyond your control,” said Glenn Katz, Spacenet’s CEO. “In today’s network-dependent world, the ability to quickly restore broadband communications is crucial. Our new ECS Connect solution offers affordable emergency broadband communications and eliminates the often cost-prohibitive upfront capital expenditure. And, with the increasingly frequent severe weather events in recent years, this exciting new service ensures continuity of your operational capabilities.”
