AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwire - Sept. 10, 2012) - C-COM Satellite Systems Inc., (TSX VENTURE:CMI) a leading global provider of mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, and Romantis Group, a major provider of satellite capacity and satellite networking equipment, have agreed to cooperate in boosting the development of self-pointing mobile solutions based on the C-COM manufactured iNetVu® antenna products and Romantis UHP VSAT technology.
The two companies signed a major contract to supply iNetVu® Flyaway antennas for ongoing Romantis turnkey VSAT projects, which will pave the way for further joint ventures. The announcement was made during the IBC 2012 exhibition.
C-COM's iNetVu® mobile satellite antenna systems will be deployed by Romantis to deliver complex emergency communications networks. Romantis' UHP-1000 satellite router is compliant with C-COM's iNetVu® 7024C VSAT controller which is ideal for applications that require a simple setup and reliable connection. The 7024C Controllers also support the GPS and GLONASS global navigation satellite systems.
The joint product of C-COM and Romantis addresses both governmental and commercial customer's needs for quick-deploy communications, supporting various applications including, but not limited to: videoconferencing, video surveillance, voice and broadband Internet. The universal terminal can be configured to work as an SCPC station, a TDM/TDMA terminal or in a fully meshed hubless environment, communicating with other mobile terminals in a single satellite hop.
"C-COM is very pleased to be working with the Romantis Group in delivering a joint solution to their customers. The iNetVu® products have been fully integrated with the Romantis satellite router; the combined C-COM and Romantis solution coupled with the GPS Glonass capability is a proven, cost effective and reliable product. We look forward to being part of many other joint opportunities with Romantis," said Dr. Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems Inc.
