Stocks in this article: GILT

PETAH TIKVA, Israel, March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (Nasdaq:GILT), a worldwide leader in satellite networking technology, solutions and services, announced today the availability of the SkyEdge II-c Capricorn ultra-high-speed satellite router for high-end enterprises, broadband access and cellular applications. The Capricorn VSAT will be showcased at the upcoming Satellite 2014 event in Washington D.C.

Capricorn, the latest addition to the SkyEdge II-c family of high-performance satellite routers, has been designed to deliver ultra-high-speed broadband services while satisfying the need for cost efficiencies.

This full-featured IP router, supporting Ku/Ka/C bands with throughput of more than 200Mbps , supports high performance and bandwidth-hungry applications such as ultra-fast web browsing, video streaming, IPTV, VoIP, cellular backhauling, and IP trunks. Capricorn comes with a full set of protocol optimization and acceleration engines built-in, including TCP and HTTP, compression and embedded caching technologies. In addition, Capricorn has an advanced application-based QoS and over-the-air AES-256 encryption for security and privacy. It also includes support for IPv6 networks - a must have for new broadband subscribers as IPv4 addresses are becoming scarce.

"Fast Internet access and quick response time for ever-more demanding applications has become an absolute necessity for almost all applications," said Erez Antebi, CEO of Gilat Satellite Networks. "The new Capricorn VSAT will serve current needs and future applications, protecting the investment of users, network operators and ISP's, for years to come."

"We are certain," continued Antebi, "that this new super-fast TDMA VSAT will play a major role in the emerging and fast growing LTE backhauling over satellite market," Mr. Antebi.
