General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies has signed an agreement to supply more than 60 earth station antennas to Supernet Ltd., Pakistan’s leading satellite network service provider, to support a large GSM backhaul network in that country. The backhaul network is being deployed by Supernet for one of Pakistan’s leading regional GSM service providers.

As part of the plan to upgrade mobile telephony services in Pakistan, Supernet will provide GSM backhaul services over satellite for a network consisting of more than 60 sites spread over the country’s mountainous northern areas. Key elements of the new network will include multiple hub sites supported by SATCOM Technologies 6.3M C-Band antennas.
