Spacenet Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd.
(Nasdaq: GILT) and a leading provider of managed network services, will be
showcasing its full suite of communication network solutions for retailers in
its “Big Bandwidth Store” themed exhibit at National Retail Federation’s BIG
Show at the Jacob H. Javits Convention Center in New York, January 14-15,

Spacenet manages and optimizes communications networks for many of the
country’s leading retailers. These clients typically have hundreds or
thousands of stores spread across a wide geographic area and include a wide
variety of broadband, wired and wireless technologies. Spacenet helps
retailers deploy the tools and technology needed to enhance Point of Sale
(POS), accelerate customer check-out and enable real-time inventory control as
well as gift card and loyalty programs, self-checkout initiatives, video
surveillance and more.

In booth #1675, Spacenet executives will discuss the need of retailers with
geographically dispersed locations for broad, fast, secure and reliable
connectivity, while simultaneously achieving a lower total cost of network
ownership. Spacenet’s “Big Bandwidth Store” theme at this year’s show
represents the one-stop bandwidth shopping that Spacenet’s comprehensive line
of 24/7 managed network services brings retailers. The exhibit will feature
four unique solutions pods, highlighting Spacenet solutions sets for some of
the top challenges facing today’s retail network, including:

  *Access Strategy – Spacenet develops an access strategy for the retailer’s
    overall network using a technology-neutral (Cable, EoC, Fiber, DSL, 4G and
    VSAT) approach that provides the greatest coverage and lowest total cost
    of ownership.
  *Wi-Fi Communications – Spacenet provides centralized, full-scale program
    management of in-store Wi-Fi deployment and operations for consistency in
    management, maintenance and security throughout each store and across the
  *Unified Communications – Spacenet helps optimize business processes and
    communications by integrating real-time (instant messaging, presence
    information, telephony, video conferencing) and non-real-time (voicemail,
    email, SMS, fax) technologies across all devices and media, leveraging its
    MPLS network to deliver an enhanced user experience through Quality of
    Service (QoS).
  *Integrated IP Physical Security – in conjunction with Vector Security^®,
    Spacenet offers an integrated, single-source solution for managed network
    services and interactive security products and services, including
    integrated video, BA/FA, access, EAS, robbery and more.

“Today’s retailers face an ever increasing demand for wide area access,
in-store Wi-Fi, unified communications, and vault-tight network security,”
said Glenn Katz, Spacenet’s CEO. “And affordable, accessible and secure
bandwidth is the key to all of the above. Spacenet’s tiered approach to
managed services empowers retailers to strategically and cost-effectively
deploy the tools and technology needed to optimize one of today’s most vital
corporate assets... the network.”

Also in booth #1675, Vector Security, a loss prevention provider offering a
wide array of interactive security products and services, will discuss how a
combined Vector Security/Spacenet solution creates one point of accountability
for retailers and provides proactive monitoring and support through Virtual
Private Networks (VPNs), compliance services and secured hosting.
