  • Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. (GILT) Subsidiary Installs VSAT Technology In 10,000th Dollar General Store 0 comments
    Sep 12, 2012 10:16 PM | about stocks: GILT

    Gilat Satellite Networks, a global leader in satellite networking technology, solutions, and services, announced today that Spacenet, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Gilat and prominent provider of managed network and data security services, has equipped its 10,000th Dollar General store with its cutting edge SkyEdgeTM VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) technology. Dollar General has more retail locations than any other retailer in the U.S.

    Since 2001, Spacenet and Dollar General have worked together to equip every one of Dollar General's 10,000+ locations with Spacenet VSAT satellite connectivity. As a result of its universal coverage and rapid deployment capabilities, Spacenet's VSAT solution is a critical factor in enabling the retailer's stores to open on time during the current rapid expansion period. Prior to the deployment of terrestrial-based broadband, such as DSL or cable, in the store, Spacenet's VSAT delivers all of the store's broadband connectivity. This temporary use typically lasts around 45 days, but after this period the VSATs continue to provide PC updates, virus protection, HR blasts, planograms, and other multicast capabilities. Additionally, the Spacenet VSATs provide a dependable communications backup to landlines for legitimately geographically diverse continuity of operations.

    "It's an honor to be working with one of the world's finest, and fastest growing retailers," said Spacenet President and CEO, Glenn Katz. "We're proud to help play a key supporting role in Dollar General's national expansion, not only with rapidly deployable VSAT connectivity, but also with our overall approach to Managed Network Services. Our goal is to provide our customers with the technology, talent and teamwork to help them expand their business, reduce costs, improve security and meet their network objectives. And there's simply no better testament to these capabilities than by deploying the largest, and fastest growing business continuity retail network in the country. Congratulations Dollar General. Here's to the next 10,000."

    Spacenet recently entered into a renewed contract to provide VSAT network connectivity and Managed Network Services for the retailer for a variety of data applications utilizing business continuity and multicast content delivery. Spacenet's reliable and cost-effective Managed Network solutions support vital retail applications such as PCI compliance, business continuity, on-site management support, internet/intranet access, POS, video security, inventory management, employee training, and payroll systems, among many others.
