Gilat is hoping to unlock Chinese potential for IFC

Gilat Satellite Networks has shipped the first batch of its Taurus aero modems for deployment on the entire fleet of an undisclosed Chinese airline customer – its first in the country.

The Ka-band modems have already been installed by a Chinese system integrator and providing IFEC services to passengers.

“Gilat is most appreciative of the close partnership with the Chinese integrator, and the joint effort of ramping up the airline’s fleet of aircraft with Gilat’s proven aero modem, Taurus,” said Yuan Si, China Country Manager for Gilat. “We are pleased to see the in-flight connectivity business moving forward in China and look forward to equipping additional airlines with Gilat’s high-performance aero modem, enabling passengers an excellent IFEC user experience.”
