Echo Satcom Wins Distribution Agreement With Satcom Global

Echo Satellite Communications has announced an agreement with Satcom Global, according to which Satcom will resell Echo's SatMAX advanced satellite communications systems to both its Iridium- and Inmarsat-linked customers.

Inmarsat's IsatPhone service is available within Asia, Africa and the Middle East on the Inmarsat-4 F1 satellite.

Don Bresina, Echo's CEO, said: "Our service provider agreement with Satcom Global confirms that the SatMAX technology provides value across multiple satellite constellations."

"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, Sparton, and our DK Enterprises agreement, together with this new access to a major new constellation are creating terrific momentum for our products."
