Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: GILT) has entered a strategic agreement valued at tens of millions of dollars, including a potential for significant project expansions, with a large government corporation in Asia Pacific
The equipment and multi-year managed-services contract will enable connectivity for multiple applications across the nation.
Gilat is responsible for building and operating the network to provide nationwide coverage for a range of applications. These include, but are not limited to, enterprise applications, with strong opportunities for cellular backhaul, emergency-response and mobility applications such as Comms-On-The-Move (COTM) and Comms-On-The-Pause (COTP).
