SkyVision Global Networks, a global telecom engineering, satellite communication service provider and managed service supplier, has been awarded a contract by Global IP to supply, build and maintain the ground infrastructure of 11 Ka-band gateway stations in different European teleports for Global IP’s GiSat-1 satellite network.

Construction of the turn-key gateway stations will begin in 2017. SkyVision’s Installation and Maintenance Group (I&M) will supply eleven 9.4-meter Ka-band antenna systems including two TT&C earth stations, and M&C systems to manage the entire network, with 24/7 maintenance and support.

The 11 gateway stations with combined 150Gbps tier-1 connectivity, will form the foundation for reliable and high quality services.

Ori Watermann, SkyVision CEO, stated, “Our SkyVison team designed the right solution for the GiSat-1 network. Winning this contract validates our engineering, installation and maintenance capabilities.
