Gilat to enhance 4G backhaul for IPT in Peru

Satellite networking technology, solutions and services company Gilat Satellite Networks says it has received a follow-on six-year order worth over US$10 million from Internet Para Todos (IPT) to deliver cellular backhaul services across rural areas in Peru.

IPT is a sustainable global collaborative initiative between Telefónica, Meta, IDB Invest and The Development Bank of Latin America and the Caribbean (CAF) to bridge the digital divide in Latin America under a sustainable model that would allow them to overcome the obstacles of bringing connectivity to rural and geographically complex areas.

Building on previous contracts, Gilat says it will enhance its 4G cellular backhaul services with IPT over terrestrial networks across the 700 sites in six regions that Gilat operates across Peru and 100 new sites in the Peruvian jungle.

This improvement will provide access to high-speed terrestrial connectivity to over one million more people living in rural areas.

The IPT-Gilat relationship has been ongoing for some while. Indeed, we reported in August 2022 that IPT had expanded its contract with Gilat for 4G cellular backhaul services in Peru.

However, Gilat has enjoyed quite a lot of other successes in Peru in recent years, supplying its services for such diverse needs as rural e-learning and mission-critical telecom systems for airports.
