Nelco and Bharti Airtel select Gilat for satellite-based communications

Feb 15, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Nelco Ltd., a provider of integrated security and surveillance solutions, and Bharti Airtel Ltd., a telecommunications company, have selected Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., a provider of satellite networking technology, to provide satellite-based communications as the primary mode of connectivity for up to 30,000 ATM sites across India.

The contract is part of India's Ministry of Finance ATM initiative aimed at making financial services accessible to a greater audience across India, regardless of income, with the deployment of new ATM sites nationwide, Gilat said.

Under the agreement, Gilat will provide the VSATs to the selected service providers who will deploy the first 15,000 SkyEdge satellite broadband terminals in 2013, with expected growth of up to 30,000 sites by middle of 2014, the company added.

"With over 100,000 satellite terminals in operation across India today through various licensed service providers, Gilat is a veteran provider of satellite broadband communications in the country, and a leading provider of VSAT solutions for the local banking and finance industry," said Stephane Palomba, Regional VP of Asia, Gilat Satellite Networks. "Our SkyEdge solution has gained the local market's vote of confidence for offering uncontended reliability, security and cost efficiency all of which are critical components of a robust banking infrastructure. We look forward to working with Bharti and Nelco on this high profile initiative." Gilat's 'embedded Dual IPsec' functionality enables simultaneous processing over two 'end-to-end' IPsec tunnels allowing for the automatic switching of transaction data to disaster recovery sites, without any need for external equipment and without additional capital expense, the company concluded.
