Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. said Sunday it was selected to provide a broadband satellite communications network to Federal State Unitary Enterprise Russian Post.
Under the deal, Gilat will deploy a SkyEdge VSAT hub station in Novosibirsk, the capital of Siberia, thus providing broadband Internet access, always-on data communications for postal applications and telephony services to remote postal facilities throughout Siberia and far-eastern Russia.
The company said the initial order is for "several hundred sites," but would not elaborate on the value of the contract. Russian Post has more than 40,000 post offices and annual revenue of $1.5 billion.
