Echo Satcom Wins Distribution Agreement With Major Global Satellite Communications Provider
Echo Satellite Communications, Inc. (Other OTC: ECSC), a leading global provider of wireless, non-line-of-sight satellite communications products today announced its agreement with Satcom GLOBAL FZE (LSE AIM: SGH) (http://www.satcomgroup.com). Satcom GLOBAL has agreed to resell Echo's SatMAX(R) advanced satellite communications systems to both its Iridium- and Inmarsat-linked customers (http://inmarsat.com). Inmarsat's IsatPhone service is available within Asia, Africa and the Middle East on the Inmarsat-4 F1 satellite. "Access to these new regions through the Inmarsat satellite constellation provides immense potential for expansion of the SatMAX market," stated Echo's CEO, Don Bresina.
"Our service provider agreement with Satcom GLOBAL confirms that the SatMAX(R) technology provides value across multiple satellite constellations," stated Bresina. "We are very pleased at having this opportunity to showcase our products on both the Iridium and now the Inmarsat constellations. Our recent sales to NAVAIR, Harris Corp., Sparton Corp., and our DK Enterprises agreement, together with this new access to a major new constellation are creating terrific momentum for our products."
SatMAX(R) is an advanced communications system that enables users to quickly and easily make fully wireless, satellite voice and data communications available from any non-line-of-sight location. With a SatMAX(R) repeater, customers have the ability to access dependable and uninterrupted communication from indoor locations. Available as both fixed and mobile units, SatMAX(R) creates a satellite communications "hotspot," allowing maximum flexibility by enabling multiple callers to use Iridium-based satellite phones in both indoor and outdoor settings.
