Gilat Telecom today announced it is now offering the Intelsat FlexMove managed service for ubiquitous, high-speed land mobile connectivity. With FlexMove, Gilat Telecom’s customers can easily connect to the internet, private data networks and cloud services from virtually anywhere in the world, including while on-the-move, or on-the-pause at a temporary site.
“With the Intelsat FlexMove service, we can help our customers quickly and easily deploy mission-critical communications and maintain a seamless connection to the people and applications they rely on,” said GILAT TELECOM VP Defense & HLS, Ami Schneider. “Gilat Telecom is excited to partner with Intelsat to offer an industry-first high-throughput, ubiquitous connectivity solution.”
The “always-on” FlexMove connectivity solution from Gilat Telecom is up to 20 times faster than current mobile satellite solutions (MSS) for a fraction of the cost. It offers global, multi-layered, redundant coverage that enables even the most data-intensive applications.
“Intelsat welcomes Gilat Telecom as a valued FlexMove solution partner,” said Intelsat Director for Land Mobile, Joel Schroeder. “With the ubiquitous, high-throughput FlexMove service, Gilat Telecom’s customers can seamlessly connect with confidence ? even in the most remote or challenging locations.”
Gilat Telecom is now offering FlexMove service plans that are sold by the gigabyte (GB). These plans are seamlessly integrated with a portfolio of qualified satellite terminals empowering even non-technical personnel to set-up and connect to the internet in just minutes. Service plans are designed for recurring, seasonal, occasional and, event-based use. Users can pool airtime and share data costs across multiple terminals, making FlexMove a cost-effective connectivity solution for organizations with large vehicle fleets and numerous remote locations.
FlexMove services for Communications-on-the-Move (COTM) applications use a flat-panel compact, vehicle-mounted satellite terminal that automatically acquires a connection and maintains communication while the vehicle is moving. The FlexMove Communications-on-the-Pause (COTP) service uses a highly compact and portable satellite terminal with an automatic or assisted pointing function to connect to a satellite. Connectivity choices include a public internet connection or a private IP solution to access a customer’s network.
