March 14, 2022 – Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. announced today that Intelsat is expanding its in-flight connectivity (IFC) capabilities with a strategic multimillion-dollar order for Gilat’s SkyEdge IV Taurus modems. SkyEdge IV Taurus is an ultra-high-performance modem for IFC designed to provide Wi-Fi internet and IPTV for passengers on commercial airlines, regional aircraft and business jets. Taurus is backward compatible, thus preserving past investments with the proven SkyEdge II-c platform, already deployed globally. This will enable Intelsat to continue to deliver high-quality IFC capabilities to its customers and an enhanced user experience, as well as to make a strategic move to embrace new technologies, such as those offered in the SkyEdge IV platform.
