Gilat to Supply Broadband Consumer VSATs for Tricolor TV and Eutelsat Networks

February 6, 2017 - Tricolor TV, Russia's largest Direct-to-Home (DTH) satellite TV provider and Eutelsat Networks satellite internet operator have launched a two-way internet access service, with broadband consumer VSATs from Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. Gilat’s residential terminal kits are sold and serviced by NoLimit Electronics (NLE), one of the largest distributors of electronic and related products in Russia. Launched in September 2016, the two-way "satellite Internet" service offers consumer and professional subscribers Internet access with speeds of up to 40 Mbps downstream and 12 Mbps upstream. To connect to the service, one needs to install receiving equipment, Gilat’s Gemini broadband VSAT terminal, which can be self-installed and supports automatic service activation. Later this year, NLE is planning to offer Gilat's Scorpio VSAT, an innovative VSAT-in-a-Box, all outdoor solution, which further simplifies self-install, maintenance and easy roof mounting. Satellite capacity is provided by Eutelsat's Express AMU1/EUTELSAT 36C high throughput satellite, which delivers continuous coverage throughout Western Russia. The Eutelsat service is enabled by Gilat's scalable multi-application X-Architecture for SkyEdge II-c.
