Mongolian telecoms service provider, Incomnet has added Gilat's SkyAbis cellular backhaul solution to its satellite communications network to serve Mongolia's mobile operators.
Gilat's SkyAbis is a prepackaged solution for cellular backhaul, based on the SkyEdge multi-service platform. The solution enables operators to deploy hybrid networks that extend the reach of their terrestrial and cellular infrastructure to remote communities. SkyAbis features traffic optimization and dynamic bandwidth allocation for CDMA/GSM backhaul, with much higher space-segment efficiencies when compared to SCPC.
Earlier this year Incomnet deployed a Gilat SkyEdge network, which provides telephony to Mongolia's rural citizens as part of Incomnet's Universal Service Obligations. The network also provides interactive data networking to selected Mongolian government agencies and businesses, particularly those in the financial-services sector.
"Our choice of Gilat's SkyAbis cellular backhaul solution is based on our excellent experience with Gilat's advanced satellite communications technology and our satisfaction with the dedicated customer support we receive," said Incomnet CEO Dr. Sanjaa Ganbaatar. "Our ongoing relationship with Gilat has helped us build a significant customer base as we continue to provide superior telecommunications services. We are pleased to have the opportunity to extend these services to Mongolia's cellular operators."
Incomnet is a long-standing Gilat customer, having deployed Gilat VSAT networks nationwide since 2001.
