Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: GILT) has been selected to equip hundreds of boats, vessels and cruise ships with satellite communications and the company’s modems and transceivers have been successfully deployed on maritime vessels in Asia.

An excellent user experience is achieved with Gilat’s SkyEdge II-c X-Architecture operating over China Satcom’s HTS Ka-band network (ChinaSat-16), providing multiple switchovers between the satellite beams.
