PETAH TIKVA, Israel -- Gilat Satellite Networks, Ltd. (Nasdaq: GILTF) today announced that its U.S. subsidiary, Spacenet Inc., has added commercial-grade, hybrid VSAT/DSL services to its Connexstar family of broadband connectivity solutions.

Spacenet’s expansion of its Connexstar offering allows the Company to provision DSL, VSAT and hybrid network solutions, depending on the needs of its customers. All Connexstar sites will continue to be managed centrally by Spacenet, whether they are Connexstar VSAT or DSL locations.

Spacenet President and CEO Bill Gerety said, “Historically, Spacenet has catered to extremely large enterprises – companies like Dollar General, Sears, Goodyear and the U.S. Postal Service – that demand the highest possible levels of service, network design, management and integration. In the past, commercial-grade DSL services did not meet our high quality and coverage standards. Now, however, we believe DSL can be successfully integrated into the superior VSAT-based WAN solutions that we provide to our customers.”

Gerety added, “Spacenet has enjoyed growth over the past five years as a result of our tight focus on meeting the needs of large multi-site enterprises, primarily in the retail, hospitality and government sectors. We remain convinced that for most of these businesses, VSAT-based networks are the most effective way to maximize value and network-wide efficiency. For some customer locations, however, DSL may provide a better fit. For those sites, we now offer DSL services. Since Connexstar DSL utilizes much of the network infrastructure used by our enterprise-grade Connexstar VSAT service, our customers are assured of extremely high levels of security, performance and manageability.”
