[Via Satellite 02-12-2016] Gilat Satcom is now shipping its “Digital Classroom In A Box” product to Africa. The company developed Digital Classroom In A Box as the e-learning component for its “Smart Village” portfolio launched last year to provide Internet, Voice Over IP (VoIP) and Video over IP through an affordable private satellite network. Smart Village is optimized for communities with low Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) rates, with prices for connectivity for individual villagers starting from $1 a month.
The Digital Classroom comprises a fully insulated and decorated shipping container with VSAT connectivity, a Wi-Fi router with 500-meter radius, a management and billing system, a projector, interactive screens, sound system and microphone, computers and tablets, tables, chairs and solar power.
Digital Classroom In a Box can connect with any e-learning platform. Gilat Satcom partner Intelitek is providing an e-learning content platform specifically developed for rural communities in Africa, providing a large number of ready-to-use syllabuses, that underwent extensive testing by the Gilat Satcom team.
