Gilat Satellite Networks said it has been awarded a "multi-million dollar" contract by Spanish satellite operator Hispasat to extend the Mexican 4.5G shared network (Red Compartida) of the Altan Redes consortium. Under the deal, Gilat will expand the existing SkyEdge II-c platform that Hispasat operates in Mexico and procure Capricorn VSATs for cellular backhaul (CBH) over satellite. Gilat added that Hispasat will use its technology to extend the service of Red Compartida to over 3 million people in underserved localities.
